CHART-toppers Gilbert O’Sullivan and Ralph McTell will grace the stage at the 2019 Wickham Festival.

The pair – two of Britain’s top singer-songwriters – will provide a fantastic festival finale.

McTell is best known for his classic ballad Streets of London while O’Sullivan had a Number One hit with Clair and made the top three with Alone Again (Naturally).

They join the hugely popular Level 42 who have already been confirmed as headliners for the Friday night. Originally from the Isle of Wight, they have a string of hits including Lessons in Love and Something About You.

And with a huge name ready to be confirmed for the Saturday night, the line-up is already looking one of the strongest in the festival's illustrious history.

Organiser Peter Chegwyn said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming Gilbert O’Sullivan and Ralph McTell who will be a perfect fit for us and will be a great way to bring down the curtain on another wonderful weekend.

“Both have a terrific catalogue of hit songs which our regulars will love and we are also delighted that Level 42 will be topping the bill on the Friday. It is already shaping up to be a very exciting line-up.

“We have a couple of big announcements in the pipeline – a major name who will soon be embarking on a major arena tour and an international superstar who is known across the globe.

“But the most important thing about the event is the unique atmosphere which remains the same, prompting so many to come back year after year.

“The festival has a real family-friendly feel with plenty to entertain young children as well as a great range of food, drink and craft stalls plus four days of fantastic music."

An international star, Gilbert O'Sulllivan has charted 16 top 40 records worldwide, including six number one songs. He has received three Ivor Novello awards.

Ralph McTell is an English singer-songwriter and acoustic guitar player who has been an influential figure on the UK folk music scene since the 1960s. His biggest hit Streets of London has been covered by more than 200 artists around the world.

Level 42, fronted by Mark King, had a number of UK and worldwide hits during the 1980s and 1990s, disbanding in 1994 and reforming in 2001.

Tickets are on sale for the event, which runs from August 1 to 4.
