Wickham Festival Gallery 2019

It’s that time of year again when you can try and can spot yourself in our new Wickham Festival 2019 Gallery. As the days are getting shorter it all seems a long while ago we were enjoying the summer so we hope they’ll stir some fond memories of this year’s event. Thanks again to Guy Reece of Striking Faces fame and all our team of photographers for snapping some brilliant pictures to help us reminisce. If you see Guy next year remember to give him a Wickham “W” pose…

Happy times at Wickham Festival 1st – 4th August 2019. Thank you to everyone that attended and being such a friendly bunch … it was a fantastic weekend!

In case you’re not following all our line up announcements on Facebook and Twitter here is a quick recap of artists we’ve already booked for 2020. No headliners yet but we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

In response to many requests we’re delighted to confirm that the amazing American guitarist Stanley Jordan will be returning to Wickham in 2020. He’ll be performing a special ‘Stanley plays Jim’ Hendrix set with his trio to recreate Jimi’s legendary performances at Woodstock and, 50 years on, his final show at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970.

Other artists include Tankus the Henge, Gaz Brookfield & The Company of Thieves, The Goat Roper Rodeo Band, Scottish songstress Eddi Reader, Flutatious, Nick Parker & The False Alarms, Mànran, Teesside trio The Young’Uns, American blues legend Lil’ Jimmy Reed, The Bar Steward Sons of Val Doonican, Hattie Hatstar, Old Blind Dogs and finally Wickham favourites Edward II to get you on your feet.

In other news once again we’re donating £5,000 from tickets, t-shirts & programme sales to the Two Saints charity who do great work helping the homeless in our local area.  They offer good quality homeless services including accommodation with support and resettlement, in Berkshire, Hampshire, Sussex, Southampton and Portsmouth.
