  1. Desperately Seeking Adult Camping Pass 2017

    Try using the Twickets ticket resale site. It's a fan to fan ticket resale site and is endorsed by Beautiful Days and there is a link from the Beautiful Days website, you can set up an alert for the ticket you are seeking and is safe and covers a wide range of events and festivals. We got a campervan pass on there last year and tickets for BD do change hands in the weeks before the festival. Good luck
  2. Getting campervan sticker off

    Use either Pledge furniture polish or Avon skin so soft. Same method with either and as already said above it's the oil / moisturiser which slowly softens the adhesive. Spray on leave for a few minutes and wipe off as much as possible. Repeat a few times. It will leave a greasy film behind, wash off with soap and water.

  5. box of red wine

    what about the 1.5lt wine pouches from Asda ? anyone tried them ? the spouse is taking cans of G&T this year so not sharing the wine, so i thought the slightly smaller size would be convenient for me, I have got the Shiraz and the Malbec.... anyone tried it ?
  6. Weather 2017

    well if the ground is rock hard then I am very happy as deep mud wont be a major problem this year. so thank goodness for that after last year. This could be a brilliant year and we deserve it after last year. If we get a sudden downpour then it will collect in the the dips, instead of immediately soaking away which is not a disaster unless your tent is in a dip. I was there the year that some poor folks' tents were floating, a number of families had to be rescued whose tents were in dips at the top of cockmill meadow, I remember rain flowing fast under our tent but it looks like a very small chance of that happening again. if it is dry enough for folks to sit on the ground that is the making of a very fine festival.
  7. Weather 2017

    I haven't read the previous 58 pages so apologies if this has been covered .... but what is the state of the ground right now ? is it baked, slightly dry or moist ? Info from those on site now would be realy welcome. I have been in pretty much all possible conditions at the festival, the deep mud is the only really bad one. all temperatures are OK though I prefer it not to be super hot as I burn easily. getting excited now, in a week's time I will start packing the van

  10. How many times have you been to Glastonbury now?

    yes we do realise how lucky we are, i have had a feeling my luck was up every time over the last 10 times !! the first one we went to we bought our tickets at cavendish travel in leeds which used to be next to Jumbo records, it was on a whim and only a few weeks before the festival if was about £50 each and I was completely blown away and in love with the place from the minute we arrived.
  11. How many times have you been to Glastonbury now?

    been to 19 on the trot, 2017 will be my 20th
  12. Living cheap on food

    The supermarkets sell a wide selection of dried meals in packets based on rice/noodles/pasta etc. Which just require boiling water. take a plastic camping dish they are less bulky than pot noodles if you are going to need enough for 5 or 6 days meals. take plastic cartons of fruit in fruit juice, if you like cereal take a decent size packet or the porridge in pots which again take boiling water. You can get jam and honey portions in little blister packs ( B&M sell them). Butter will get hot in a tent during the day assuming we get a sunny glasto ! cereal bars,dried fruit and nuts are good to take out with you during the day. If you are in a car you can leave some of it there and go back half way through the week and can take baked beans in plastic cartons, rice pudding, and eggs ( take a little frying pan and small pan for beans on toast etc). Cartons of fruit juice too. if you are on the coach then the dried stuff will be better. the 50p tea tent is in the green furtures field and does very good value cakes too.
  13. Taking kids

    she goes through the same gate as you, so long as she doesnt look 13 or older she will wont be expected to show ID. she wont get her own program or wrist band or anything but it will be straightforward. You can get her a spare mini program to wear on a neck band by purchasing a guardian on site or asking at a security caravan or general info stall. Do call into the kids field with her there is stuff for kids of all ages, including a great zip wire swing a kids caberet big top and she can learn circus skills etc, and it's a great place to chill in the morning for the adults with places to sit and get a cuppa or breakfast. the helta skelta is pretty good too. My daughter is now 15 so we dont go in anymore and I miss it !
  14. Resale Rants

    thank you Peroni, a bit of a nightmare either way when we are racing against the clock. hope you are feeling more chiiled now having had a good rant, and I think there are many on here who are equally exasperated with the antics you describe.
  15. Resale Rants

    Can I ask what actually happens when you enter a registration that has already been assigned a ticket. Does it immediately tell you it has been used and let you put in an new one, does it wait until you press proceed and then tell you one or more are used and a that point does it exit from the booking page or allow you to put in different registrations. We got ours and our friends tickets in the main sale ( 5 in total). This morning we got 3 tickets for other members of their family who failed last October. In the past we have just bought our own family 3. I am slightly concerned about double dipping when we go for the main sale again after the fallow year. We've been to every glastonbury festival since 94 and people think we have some magic way of succeeding, but we have just been organised, determined and lucky much as you all describe above. I worry that we might be asked to add a 6th registration to our group due to our past success rate, but that the 6th person might be hedging their bets and be in multiple groups. massive commiserations Ollie9917 you must be livid !
