Win a t-shirt signed by Kiefer Sutherland

Book now for the 2020 Wickham Festival and you could win a very special signed t-shirt.

We are giving away a money-can’t-buy souvenir autographed by many of the big names to grace the stage at what has been the most successful event yet.

You can win a very special signed t-shirt

The autographs include Hollywood star Kiefer Sutherland and headliner Frank Turner as well as music legends Judy Collins and Lucinda Williams.

Mark King of Level 42 has also added his name along with the Proclaimers, Gilbert O’Sullivan and Ralph McTell.

All those who reserve their places for next year before August 15 will be entered into a draw for the chance to win this fantastic piece of memorabilia.

It is another big reason to make sure you book up early – quite apart from the fact you can save up to £70 on a weekend ticket.

Simply complete one of the forms given out at the festival or download one here and send it with a cheque to The Wickham Festival office, 51, Russell Street, Gosport, Hampshire PO12 3JD by August 15 – we won’t worry if it is held up in the post and arrives a couple of days late!

That will enable you to buy a weekend season ticket for £120 instead of £190 or £60 for an Under 16 ticket. Under 10’s will again be free.

Alternatively you can click here to book online for this great saving of £70 on a weekend ticket.

Organiser Peter Chegwyn said: “Although the line-up has still to be decided, you know it will be good – and the unique relaxed and chilled atmosphere will never change.

“This is our way of thanking our regulars for their loyalty. Record numbers have already booked up because they enjoyed this year’s wonderful event so much and because it is a big saving.

“And all those who have already returned their forms will be automatically entered into this draw along with those who reserve their places by August 15.”

    St Nicholas Church at Wickham looking lovely in Wednesday's sunshine. As Revd. Jane who took the photo said: 'I never thought I'd be able to take a photo standing in the middle of the usually busy A32'. Lockdown has some benefits! ... See MoreSee Less

    Two artists we've tried to book over the years, so far without success, are Joan Baez & John Prine. John is critically ill on a ventilator thanks to Covid-19. Here's Joan signing his song Hello In There. Get well soon John. ❤️

    Many years ago I gate crashed John Prine's 50th birthday party, I was hitch hiking down through the American south back in 1996... Got to Nashville, walked into a bar and there he was celebrating in the back room with a whole load of his musician friends, including Nanci Griffith if I remember rightly.. Good times... long ago... Get well soon buddy!

    Oh nooooo, John! Bad news, that. He cancelled his gig at Bridgewater Hall about a month ago. Would have loved to see him. Thanks for sharing this Janey, will have a listen now xxx
