If you’re think­ing of head­ing to Wick­ham fes­ti­val, bet­ter get your skates on. The strongest line­up ever has seen a surge in sales. Not sur­pris­ing when their head­lin­ers include Frank Turn­er and the Sleep­ing Souls, Lucin­da Williams, The Pro­claimers, Judy Collins, Gra­ham Nash and Kiefer Suther­land. This is a real fam­i­ly fes­ti­val but with an impres­sive and high cal­i­bre lineup.

Says organ­is­er Peter Cheg­wyn: “There is a very real pos­si­bil­i­ty that for the first time ever all four days could sell out com­plete­ly. We still have tick­ets for all nights but peo­ple should buy in advance as there is a strong chance we won’t have tick­ets on sale on the gate. We have already sold more tick­ets at this stage of the year than ever before – hard­ly sur­pris­ing giv­en the qual­i­ty of the line-up. There has been huge inter­est with peo­ple com­ing from all parts of the coun­try and across Europe. I real­ly believe this will be our best fes­ti­val yet.”
