“Mud, mud, glorious mud…”
We were so happy to attend Wickham Festival, it was one of the things we missed the most during restrictions & lockdown. We put up our tent on Wednesday, returning Thursday morning, to set up fully and camp for the weekend.
This year the whole field was used so there was an unbelievable amount of space for everyone, Thursday evenings opening brought people across to our corner of the field, which was great and after we closed, we could sit in our tent and hear the second stage brilliantly well, which due to problems became the Main stage on Friday.
Friday’s weather with wind & rain was challenging at times and despite the increasingly muddy field, festival goers came across and some folk wanted to try Bow-EMM Therapies for themselves.
Saturday morning we woke to water flowing through our tent – so we brewed a cuppa, kept our feet dry and considered what to do when the rain finally stopped! All our floor mats were soaked and thankfully we had fencing to hang stuff on to try to dry and spare tarpaulin to put down instead, reorganised and opened a little later than usual. I think the weather and mud where off putting to a lot of people, so we had less visitors than we hoped but still had a good day, with a great show next to us.
Sunday again was changeable, so it was really good to have folk visit us, having a tent full of lady morris dancers during a sudden downpour was fun.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to the organisers & crew of Wickham Festival as well as everyone who visited us, despite the challenges we were so glad to be back doing what we love the best, at our favourite festival.
