THOUSANDS of people have enjoyed the likes of Tony Hadley, Chas & Dave and the SAS Band featuring Toyah Willcox and Queen's Roger Taylor at the Wickham Festival.

The four-day event, voted the best festival with a capacity of under 15,000, will be closed today by folk legends Lindisfarne and Steeleye Span.

The festival kicked off on Thursday, with former Spandau Ballet frontman Tony Hadley headlining the opening night.

Punk heroes The Stranglers and Bruce Foxton from The Jam were among the lead acts on Friday night.

And last night Southampton’s own X Factor winner Matt Cardle made a guest appearance with the Trevor Horn Band ahead of headliners the SAS Band featuring Roger Taylor of Queen, Fish, Madeline Bell and Toyah Willcox.

Acts have performed across four stages, with a new stage featuring local and unsigned acts.
