Glastonbury 2013

Glastonbury festival needs no introduction as it is probably Europe's most well-known festival. Held each June on Pilton Farm in Somerset, it was our third time to display our wares.

We were located in the Greenfields right opposite the Green Crafts area and a quick walk from the Stone Circle. The weather for this year was very well behaved with rainfall only on the Thursday and a weekend of beautiful sunshine.

 The Rolling Stones were the headline act with their debut appearance at Glastonbury. Although I am not such a big fan, I joined what appeared to be the entire population of the festival to catch the ageing Mr Jagger sing a few songs that were hits before I was even born.

The Green Crafts area was again filled with a wide variety of activities where people of all ages came to learn new skills or appreciate the work of talented artisans. We'd like to thank all those who came to visit our stall and very much hope to have the opportunity of exhibiting in the Green Fields next year.
