So let’s get this out of the way first of all. Massive thanks to Peter Chegwyn and the team behind Wickham Festival for keeping it on the road despite two enormous setbacks just ahead of the start. Atrocious weather beforehand turned much of the site into a quagmire. In addition, there was a problem with the main stage, the contractor failing to deliver a safe and sound structure, with water getting into the electrics. Despite everything, the event went on. Thanks too to all of the musicians, many of whose schedules were changed and shortened as a result of the loss of one stage….

So, in line with the background of uncertainty, a non-linear approach to this and subsequent Wickham posts seems entirely appropriate.

There’s a portal to another universe, (apparently). The gateway is thought by some to be found at the bottom of a flagon of cider. The idea that we are always being watched by the men in black can sometimes take on a terrifying reality…
