Whickham Fake Festival


A Fake Festival is a fabulous opportunity for families and local communities to enjoy a fun packed music day out together at their local playing field, village green, sports field or college campus. It's a chance to meet up with friends and to listen to some great live bands. Each Festival makes a mark on the local community and quickly becomes an annual event to look forward to.

Essential Companions

Essential Companions
Starting 2018 we are offering disabled tickets to purchase through the website. Disabled tickets admit both the disabled adult (18+) or young person (0-17yrs) and an additional PA (personal assistant or carer, an adult aged over 16yrs) on the same ticket, at the same time. The disabled person and the PA cannot enter the event separately.

Disabled ticket holders are required to show adequate evidence of disability during check-in to allow free entry of a nominated PA. If proof of disability is not provided, access may be refused.

Accepted proof is any of the following:
Middle or Highest rate DLA Care
Lower or Higher rate DLA Mobility
Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
CredAbility Access Card “+1” category requirement (http://www.accesscard.org.uk)

As the events have limited attendance capacity, we reserve the right to stop the sale of disabled tickets (by marking them as sold-out) at the point where we feel the event resources would be compromised if we continued with sales.

The PA must assist and carry out full ‘duty of care’ for the disabled person, at all times. If it is felt that the position of the PA and their role of ‘duty of care’ is compromised (eg. excessive alcohol consumption), this could lead to relevant parties being asked to leave the event. Both PA and the disabled person should be aware of this statement.
