THOUSANDS of music lovers partied the evening away to the sounds of ‘Wessex Boy’ Frank Turner at Wickham Festival.

The family-friendly event once again attracted huge crowds to the site in Blind Lane, which featured more stalls and stages than ever before.

Headliners included Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls, The Proclaimers, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Lindisfarne, Alabama Three, and the Kiefer Sutherland Band (top right) who wrapped up the festival on the Sunday.

Festival-goers were also treated to a number of attractions across the site, including music workshops, circus acts and a digital funfair.

The four-day music event started on August 1. It is expected to return at a similar time next year.
