Wickham Festival News

Wakey wakey Wickham

It’s exactly two weeks until the music starts!

For early risers, we’ll be opening the arena from 8am this year to weekend season ticket holders. There are breakfasts available plus some morning activities including yoga, Folk Orc workshops and informal ‘Meet the Artist’ sessions and workshops with the likes of Wizz Jones.  This does not include Thursday morning, so those arriving on Wednesday can have a lie in after our free concert at The Wickham Centre or having a drink at the festival bars which will be open on Wednesday evening whilst we finish off the site build.

Yoga will take place at 10am – 11am Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

Please note that camping tickets are sold out although there are still some very limited 6 person glamping tents available here:

For those who enjoy Shanty singing, we’ve three groups of Shanty singers on Saturday afternoon; Shirley Knot, Alternative Quay, and Portsmouth Shanty Men. Plus traditional Morris Dancers on Saturday & Sunday afternoons.
