  1. Overheard funnies

    "Don't do drugs!.... Or... Do all the drugs: like I did!"
  2. What made you cry at Glasto?

    Not going to get into a long debate about it, but yes, he wanted change in the EU; however, in the ref lead up, he was at best remain leaning and at worst impartial. None of us will ever agree with everything a politician believes/does but he represents me in more ways than anyone else ever ever has. Also, my despair at Brexit was symptomatic of bigger issues in our society at the time and still now. Let me have my moment please
  3. What made you cry at Glasto?

    Will probably get some stick for this but watching JC in the LeftField, I had tears streaming down my cheeks. Tears for all the people who have suffered so horribly over the last seven years and tears of hope that it feels (however falsely) that the tides are changing. Right from when Billy Bragg raised last years referendum and highlighted how we had all drifted to the LF like it was some sort of triage centre for broken hearts (and after a v emotional roundup before that!) I knew I was a gonner. The only thing that got me through the aftermath of Brexit was knowing that by being there I was surrounded by remainers. The stark contrast between how I felt theb and how the latest election went was a great relief. Part of the reason I love G is because of it's socialist, left leanings, so to have this experience there was v meaningful to me (regardless of whether that makes me 'naive'). I've also been supporting him for over two years, yet every time I've been supposed to see him something has happened to prevent it. I was beginning to think I was cursed :p.
  4. What made you smile ?

    Three more from me :). - Being made to feel beautiful by the people in (one of?) the rabbit holes secret room/s, - Waking up leisurely to 'good morning campers' from the milk truck, - hearing the cheer of sunset on the Weds evening and sunrise on the Sun morning (although we *just* missed being on the park hill/at the stone circle for both this year so got it from a distance)
  5. 2018 Festival - Glastonbury replacement

    When we did Sziget during the last fallow year, our highlight was bumping into Michael Eavis during the Stone Roses! We tried to explain this to the people we'd befriended but they didn't really get it :p.
  6. Rate Your Festivals

    Funnily enough, top for me is 2010, bottom is 2011.
  7. Your (potentially) Contraversial Changes to Glasto

    Can't we all just get along??
  8. Sexual Assauly at Silver Hayes

    This makes me really sad to see. That a handful of dickheads are making nice people hyper concious of their behaviour is seriously fucked up. The only time I've had this happen to me at G (seeing Mik at the rocket lounge of all things!!) I gave the guy the benefit of the doubt before it became clear that he needed a fucking good bollocking which he promptly got.
  9. Not 2019, but hubs and I had planned to go travelling at the start of 2020. We have now decided that if we can get tickets to the 50th anniversary we'll push our travels back to the start of July.
  10. Mainly upcycling: furniture, cushions, frames, bottle lamps etc. But then also embroidery :). I have the skills but my entrepreneurial nuance is lacking so don't know if it'll ever be much more than a pipe dream sadly.
  11. Currently looking at how to apply for the Green Crafts Field. In 2013 I was inspired to start my own business which I've been gradually trying to put together alongside doing a "proper" job that makes me really ill. Need to get out of it asap...
  12. Your (potentially) Contraversial Changes to Glasto

    Definitely this. Was mine and hubs' main quibble that made me feel like a little old lady. Even just little things like the stone dragon being so open and practically signposted now! Was thrilled to see the Piano Bar had moved... Though they defo could have done more! Really miss the SL alleyways too...
  13. Does anyone have a spare programme?

    I love this . Congratulations. Glasto is an important part in mine and hubs' relationship so we tried to incorporate lots of elements of the fest into our wedding too :). Would defo have got married there if we could: will defo be doing a hand fasting one year :).
  14. Does anyone have a spare programme?

    Would love the free press if you don't mind?
  15. Your (potentially) Contraversial Changes to Glasto
