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.

    Hooray! Rolled over my tickets from last year, just booked hotel for the 3 nights! Now I have to hope Jelly Belly Bean shop in Wickham is still trading!

    How do you get information on having a trade stand?

    That's a bloody good line-up

    Best news this yr. Have so missed live music. Have my tickets from last yr safely put away.

    Can we roll over to next year if we can't go?

    Have you got covid safety restrictions in place? X

    Best news ive heard since last march, πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽΆ

    Looks amazing...what a lineup!

    Spent most of last march and April in hospital with covid and have been isolating ever since. You have no idea how much I am looking forward to this.

    Fantastic news ........if Leo Sayer can’t make it .......maybe worth asking The Undertones or The Members to replace him .

    Can I start packing my bags now - very excited! πŸŽΌπŸŽ΅πŸŽΆπŸ˜ƒ

    Brilliant, I love Show of Hands and Liza Carthy.

    Is Leo Sayer not playing now?

    Is it £60 off the advertised price or is already deducted?

    Yippppoeeeee the government must have heard me asking yous if it’s going ahead

    Excellent news! Bought tickets last year and have been keeping fingers crossed that it goes ahead. Can’t wait to see the SAS band again 😁

    I really hope this goes ahead - been waiting so long & such a fantastic line-up!

    Is there any way of upgrading a day ticket to the full weekend?

    Love Eddi Reader, which day will she be there?

    To get the saving to buy the 4 day adult season ticket do I click on tier 3 weekend plus Thursday plus Friday as I can’t see the season ticket as a one off. Am I being thick?

    All booked...thank you!😎🎡🌼

    Got our tickets and can't wait πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—
