It will be the first time the superstar has played the Wickham Festival and her appearance is a real coup for organiser Peter Chegwyn.

He said: “We are thrilled to have landed one of the biggest names in rock music. Suzi is an absolute legend in the industry with a huge catalogue of hits.

"People will want to see a real icon who is still a major force. Even at 73 her voice is still strong and she has incredible energy on stage.

“She recently played the London Palladium and is flying back from a series of major gigs in Germany to play at the Wickham Festival and I know our fans are in for a real treat.

“It is great to have a new name on the bill alongside some old friends in the Levellers and Ferocious Dog who will be a powerful double act for the Saturday night.

“We have a really good mix this year. We have traditional folk favourites like Seth Lakeman, The Men They Couldn’t Hang and Skipinnish plus the high octane energy of Tankus the Henge and the madness of John Otway."

Daily Echo:

And there is more to come with other headliners and artists still to be confirmed.

Following mud problems last year, the arena will be moved across the road.

Festival-goers will be treated to all the usual attractions - two main stage Big Tops, a host of smaller venues, late night comedy, storytelling; dance displays, music workshops, a traditional crafts fayre; real ales festival and the usual wide range of attractions for children.
