You will find all the action in our Main Arena. It contains the Specsavers Stage, all our food vendors and our traders too. Pitch up your day tents, rugs and gazebos here and settle yourselves down for some major fun! You can also access The Dovecote, Family Arena and Adventure Arena from this area.
If you are interested in having a stall, or are a food vendor that would like to trade, please get in touch with us via the Contact page.
Our Family Arena was introduced in 2016. It's the home of the Hawthorn Marquee, which houses the Hawthorn Stage. On Friday this stage features a hot line-up of young artists as well as established bands.
On Saturday, on the Hawthorne Stage, is an array of performers to delight and entertain our younger visitors.
Also featured within the Family Arena are bouncy castles, arts & crafts tents, character meet & greets, story telling, sports activities - all of which are FREE!
Wicked Hathern Fest teamed up with Charnwood Scoobies and Loughborough Land Rover Club in 2016 to launch our brand new Adventure Arena. The arena does its own bit for charity, with Rainbows getting involved with a stall and collection buckets.
If you're interested in showing a vehicle or are involved in a club, please get in touch with us using the Contact page.
Here at WHF we are proud of our bars. Our main bar, The Dovecote, stocks a full range of real ales, farmhouse ciders, lager & cider on tap now also sells spirits and mixers. It's run by our volunteers and has been noted to be one of the best run festival bars in the area.
We also have a Wine Bar which serves a selection of wines provided by George Hill's in Loughborough, as well as Prosecco. All wine is available either by the glass or by the bottle.
Burleighs Distillery provide our Gin Bar with a delicious range of gin cocktails for you to taste and you can even purchase a bottle (or two) of their locally produced gin.
Our final bar is our cocktail bar run by Horatio Matricardi, selling the finest cocktails and also Pimms on tap!
Don't forget that you can now stay with us on both Friday and Saturday night. Camping was introduced in 2015 and has been a sure-fire hit. With its close proximity to the Main Arena and easy access to the Car Park, our campsite has its own toilet facilities and drinking water available.
