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 response to many requests we’re delighted to confirm that the amazing American guitarist Stanley Jordan will be returning to Wickham in 2020.

    First time I saw them was at Wickham in 2018. Great band and a great booking

    Excellent :-) Firm favorites ever since we first saw them at Wickham many years ago ... we even managed to catch them in Germany and the Netherlands a few times now 🎶💖😍🤩🎶

    Great band - seen them two or three times at Glastonbury & should have been at the Robin, Bilston before lockdown cut it.

    Yes!! I've loved this band since I first saw them at Wickham.

    Love this band! 😍

    Just one of the greatest bands that you could ever see live. ❤️

    Great band, great song and great video.

    Can't think of a better way to open the festival! 😃 I think we might go a bit crazy... They were one of the last bands I saw live before lockdown, best gig of the year so far (Joiners, Southampton). And unlikely to be beaten now I guess.

    Lisa maybe we should do Wickham next year!

    Wickham + Tankus = 😍😍😍😍

    Such energy 🧡

    Yes, Tankus!

    Thank you 😍😍 - Alice Ellwood

    Brilliant 😀👍

    Yeah

    Clive Allen, this is just down the road from Aysha and Rich!

    Carol Morrell, Ian Morrell 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻❤️

    Oh yeah!

    Thank you Wickham!!! 🙏🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
