Wickham Festival - 3-6 August

Set in rolling downland two miles north of Fareham in Hampshire, the village of Wickham has a picturesque Georgian Market Square, scenic water meadows, the historic Chesapeake Mill, plus attractive church and village buildings. This is the wonderful setting for the Wickham Festival. It is a lovely village in which to spend a weekend enjoying excellent music, fine food, great company and lovely surroundings.

Wickham is a site-based festival. There are craft stalls, real ale bars, an international food fayre, children’s entertainers, a chill-out zone, dance displays stage, the ‘Groovy Movie’ solar-powered cinema tent, Digital Funfair and many other attractions plus excellent amenities including indoor and outdoor toilets and washing facilities, ‘Posh Wash’ showers and plenty of water taps. It’s a very safe and secure site with friendly staff and 24-hour security.

There are festival campsites which have room for tents, caravans and motorhomes and are located adjacent to the main Festival arena. All camping fields are just a few minutes walk from the shops and amenities of Wickham village.

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. The festival is particularly keen to promote local artists and we’re sure you’ll discover some great acts throughout the weekend.
