A MUSIC festival is up for a top national award.

The Wickham Festival has been nominated in the best festival category of the Live UK Music Business Awards.

Organiser Peter Chegwyn said: ‘We are absolutely delighted to be nominated for this award.

‘It is a tribute to the dozens of people who work so hard to make this festival such a success and to create its unique relaxed atmosphere and family feel.

‘Although it is nice to see our efforts recognised like this, the greatest reward is seeing thousands of smiling faces – and the biggest testament to our success is that so many people come back year after year.

‘This year has been the best festival I have put on in 25 years, record-breaking in every sense.

‘It has really put Wickham on the map – the question now is how do we top it? We have already had a record number of people booking for next year before we have even announced a single act.’

As reported, Portsmouth Guildhall has been nominated in the teamwork section of the awards.
