You’ll be hard pushed to find a more typically English start to summer than the May Day sunrise celebration in Wickham. Local Morris dancers “greet the dawn” at the start of the day, and perform once again in the early evening.
The Sqaure is taken over by a fun fair during the annual Wickham Horse Fair in May when the travelling community sell and race ponies and horses.
Early August is when a large field to the north of The Square is transformed into The Wickham Music Festival. With a definite folky feel, this intimate festival attracts big names and music lovers from across the country.
In early December, Father Christmas visits The Square to turn on Wickham’s Christmas lights during a festive evening of seasonal refreshments and late night shopping. And the annual Boxing Day Rally sees the village filled with vintage cars and motorbikes of every era.
