Hey Picnickers, apologies we haven't communicated with you all sooner. Truth be known, we have found it hard to say it out loud, there won't be another wonderful VP this year. It had become a true labour of love and passion over the years built from the ground up in a Yalding garden. The risk of putting on the show, to the high standard we have created several years on, lays a heavy financial burden alongside an unpaid full time job as festival organisers. Our one sole reward was seeing you, our wonderful picnickers enthusiasm and amazing support alongside the charity's we have supported along the way, thank you all for joining us on this magical journey. We hope this won't be the end of our love affair (really, it's not you, it's me.) keep an eye on us as we scheme, to see what happens to the Vicar's Picnic next. Much love x VP ... See MoreSee Less
such a shame but totally understandable given the work involved. I'm sure most people would be happy to pay an increased ticket cost and let the organisers take a wage from it which would only be fair, im sure it could be done in a way that the charities would also still get something.
What a shame but I get it.. well done guys xxx
Such a shame to see no picnic this year, it has been a pleasure working along side you with Star Protection... I hope you do come back bigger and better (dont know how) than before as your followers well family will miss you.... ❤❤❤
A great little festival. Thanks to everyone involved. See you again one day
Ah, that's a shame. We went in 2017 and 2018 and had a great time. Thank you for all your hard work and for the good times xxx
Great shame - hope you get things rockin and rollin next year!
Such a shame, but understandable. Thanks for all the amazing V.Ps you gave us. Some great times.
Such a shame. As a trader it was my favourite event. Such a happy vibe. Hope you bring us something soon xxx
Such a shame. Great local festival. Fingers crossed for next year and thanks for all the hard work you have done in the past❤
What a shame hopefully next year!
Important thing is you get well. X
Ah, what a shame 😩 I was really hoping you'd be back this year. Hope you can come back soon x
Such a shame we have had some really good weekends. Well done to you all and thank you for all the fun
I heard you had sold it as a going concern? Am I wrong ?
Such a shame, as we loved it. Thank you so much and hope there will be another in the future xxx
Such a shame. Hope you guys feel you can do it again as such a great vibe. You guys do a great wonderful job
Gutted 😭! But totally understandable. It’s tough out here. Thanks for being excellent and I hope you’ll be back in the future. I’d be happy to help as well! From the point of view as an artist & a festival goer, you’re one of the best!!
What a shame. You really carved out your own unique festival through hard work. And the most lovely people I've had the pleasure of playing for. Really hope to see you return again. Much love to you all The Novatones ❤
Ah gutting.. I was just about to get the volunteering kit ready too... Totally understand guys and for what it’s worth you ARE one of the best festivals we have been to.. Take it easy y’all x
We were wondering if there would be another this year. Thanks for the update. So sorry to hear there isn’t another VP in the pipeline but totally understand the burden it must have put in you all these past years. If there is never another one, the work you have done to raise money for local Charities and provide great family entertainment for the past few years is amazing. We have fabulous memories of the three years we came and still can’t believe we saw FLC in Yalding! 😜 thanks for the good times and your hard work!
Would have been nice to have known sooner but had already guessed it wasn’t going to happen.
What a shame we really enjoyed your festival and the hospitality you showed us was fantastic. Thank you for the memories. All our love Nancy and the Dolls (formerly Sex Pissed Dolls) ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
As a regular picnicer to the vicars picnic... If you need any extra hands to help organise.. Myself and my partner will be happy to help...pls do reach out and save my name as I really do genuinely mean that.. It was and it a fantastic festival and I would love it to continue and be happy to help
A shame but I can gladly say I had some great times in the past years big thanks to all involved 😀
Oh no what a shame, love your festival. You have all done a brilliant job organising the wonderful weekend's but totally understand how much time it would of taken. I have lovely memories 😊. The best festival I've ever been to. You guys have a fantastic year and I'll keep my fingers crossed that the vp will make a comeback one day 😘😘😘 x
Cherish those summers full of fabulous memories and we hope to see you all again soon!
Love Team VP. X ... See MoreSee Less

Could you sign up Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Dope Lemon and French Kiwi Juice please. Oh and maybe Daniel Kitson in the comedy tent too.
Yes bring back Reef!!!!
Absolutely, we really missed the festival not happening this year. If you could get Norman Jay and the Dualers back again next year it would be the icing on the cake!
Definitely! Please save a pitch for the SNOWBAR 😎 exactly what we said last year. The festival is amazing because of the people, the organisers and the volunteers not the big acts. We danced all day long to the music from stage 2 while serving up snow cones to awesome people. I have to say tho, the dance tent was great!
Cant wait. X
SUNCHARMER are a top big stage band now - Pub in the Park last week and Truckfest next week!! Very dynamic!

Definitely Dualers and James
James? Travis? Reef again?
Suede please! Whatever we will be there !

How about you post links to the related fund raisers tomorrow rather than silencing your social channels and achieving nothing
How about that refund I've been waiting for?
How about refunding me the £457 I’m Owed !!
I've noticed these comments come from people who seemingly could care less about racism. I don't place blame on how you possibly don't understand how terrifying it is to grow up not being white. I do however blame the ones choosing to turn a blind eye to this matter. Paint your body black for a week, walk around a bad neighborhood, or even a good neighborhood... I challenge you to see what happens then, and then have to live with the memory of these experiences for the rest of your life.
Ya know its smarter to use the correct avenues to seek a refund. This post is about something that truly matters. Black lives matter. Stop making other people's suffering about you.
Despite how carefully worded this is, I salute it as better than silence
Ok the BLM is all well and good but where were all these protests for our women and children raped and possible murdered by the "Asian" gangs here at home? MSM blackout no fundrasiers for the girls that were trafficked just silence. Promote that.
Plenty of half priced trainers on offer.

Guns and roses Green Day and The Who
Two Door Cinema Club 💯

I’d love to see Four Hour Queues For Water on the friday Chavs Setting Fire To Tents on Saturday, and Singer Who Had One Number One Last Year on the Sunday 🙂
Billie Eilish, Green Day, My Chem
Kings of Leon - they had to cancel their Finsbury Park gig which was due to happen end of June so I’m sure they’d put on a banging show at R&L!
Rage against the machine but keep the rest of the line up more alternative than adding poppy rubbish as reading and Leeds was always more alternative until mainstream took over
Has to be a band that can galvanise us and make us sing some ballads ! FOO Fighters easily as they are Reading festival
Post Malone 🥳👍🥳👍🥳
Just ditch the roadman music and go back to the good stuff you're known for
