The outskirts of historic Wickham village provide a picturesque setting for one of the safest and most relaxed festivals of the summer. Enjoy some great live music.
Wickham is rated by many as one of the safest, most relaxed and family-friendly festivals in the UK. They were voted ‘Best UK Festival, cap. under 15000’ at the Live UK Music Business Awards in October 2015. Each year the festival introduces new ideas and keep what works.
This year there will be four stages at Wickham Festival. So as well as established artists there will be plenty of opportunities to listen to up and coming young talent who are given the chance to showcase their talents. Wickham Festival is particularly keen to promote local artists and they’re sure you’ll discover some great acts throughout the weekend.
It’s not all about the music – You can enjoy a wide range of family entertainment including: cartoon cinema, storytelling, puppet theatre and make ‘n’ take crafts tent. In addition there is a digital funfair, playbus, laser arena, bouncy castles and children’s entertainers – and all are free once people are in the festival arena! Enjoy the entertainers who wander freely for your amusement or try out the giant deckchair or show your partner just how much they light up your life by holding hands under the electronic love heart. This was a huge hit last year so the festival is bringing back the giant heart which lights up only when two people hold hands beneath it to complete the circuit.
Public access is from Blind Lane. Please follow the signs when arriving in Wickham.
