Wickham Festival Travel Information

If travelling to the Wickham Festival this weekend please note campsites are open from 12 noon to 9pm Wednesday and then from 10am onwards on Thursday.

Please follow the yellow Festival signs on arrival in Wickham, then as you approach the traffic lights at the junction of the A334 Winchester Road and Blind Lane, the signs directing you to our camping fields as follows:

If camping in tents or glamping, please follow the signs for ‘tented camping’ with a new entrance on the A334 Winchester Road. Do NOT travel via Blind Lane as in the past.

If camping in caravans or motorhomes, please follow the signs for ‘caravans & motorhomes camping’ and enter via Blind Lane.

If camping in a mix of tents and vehicles, please follow the signs for ‘mixed camping’ and enter via Blind Lane and Frith Lane. Please note the ‘mixed camping’ field is likely to fill-up fairly quickly, we have an overflow ready but we regret the surface is not so good for tented campers. Please bring a groundsheet, blanket or similar if you can.

Please have your camping ticket ready for inspection.

Our Box Office will be open from 12 noon Wednesday & Thursday for you to exchange tickets for wristbands and buy Festival programmes. If arriving Wednesday please note there’s an extra concert at 7.30pm on Wednesday evening in the nearby Wickham Community Centre featuring Fake Tackray, Les Barker, Jim Malcolm & Alistair Russell. Entry is free to weekend season ticket holders.

With sunshine forecast all weekend and our Festival site looking lovely and in great condition, we hope you enjoy a safe journey and a fantastic Wickham Festival.

With the site build finished, this is how things look first thing Thursday 2nd August 2018…

Not the muddy start that welcomed you last year.

If you’ve yet to buy tickets, they’re still available here and will be on sale at the gate each day.
