Glastonbury Festival 2016 preparations

We’re busy getting ready for Glastonbury Festival 2016, here’s what we’ve been up to

We’ve been supporting some of our Gig Buddies as access stewards at the festival for the past 3 years (thanks to our friends at Attitude is Everything who do an amazing job of organising the stewards for all the accessible viewing platforms) and we’re really looking forward to Glastonbury Festival 2016!

Last year we applied to run a stall there and provide Punk and Funk make-overs to festival goers and we’re off there again this year and we’ve been busy preparing. This post is a look at some of what we’ve been up to.

It even rained to get us really in the Glastonbury mood.

Then it was time to head off to the local pub.Glastonbury Festival 2016

David amazed us with some of his magic tricks and mind-bending skills.

Then back to the campsite to sit round the fire, a favourite thing of ours to do at the end of a long day at Glastonbury.

Practicing our activities

The next step was a practice go at our craft activities and face painting skills.

There’s still a few things we still need to do but we’re nearly there and ready to embark on another Glastonbury adventure. Just as soon as we work out exactly how we’re going to fit everything in our van!

See you in the Green Futures Area.
