  1. Shepton Mallet traffic standstill

    Hi all, just thought I'd advise you not to come through Shepton Mallet at the moment. A large group of Irish travellers are blocking the roads and no-one can get through. I'll try and keep you posted.
  2. Shepton Mallet traffic standstill

    Just confirming the travellers have moved on and the traffic is now running fine
  3. Festival Bags

    If it's not too late, here's my bag and what I carry around every day:
  4. Shepton Mallet traffic standstill

    Loads of police are over there trying to sort it, so hopefully they'll be gone by tomorrow. They'd better be as I need to get to Tescos before then!
  5. Festival tips & advice video

    Hello! My daughter's filmed a Glastonbury tips video, if you'd like to take a look. There's some really good advice there, particularly if it's your first time...

    It's back! Zoom in for details...
  7. The 2017 packing list!

    Here's my list, although I don't camp any more, or have children, so it's a bit old now, but still useful for other people!
  8. A video of the site

    Hi! I was allowed into the Festival site on Thursday evening and this is the video I took. It's part of a weekly vlog, so skip to 5:12 for the Glastonbury bit!
  9. Festival site photos

    Had a little mosey around last night and these are the photos I took. Pro: The ground is lovely and firm with a very slight spring to my steps. Con: This nice weather is making the long-drops much smellier than normal!
  10. Vintage clothing seller?

    I hope this is ok to ask: Does anyone here run one of the vintage clothing stalls? Or can put me in touch with someone who does? I have a load of vintage clothing to sell (proper 1960s-'70s) - 2 large boxes - as a job lot, and wondered if anyone's interested? I live in Pilton, so you/they could pick them up on the way in. I'm looking for £160 for about 80 items, so sell each one for £4 and you've doubled your money! Thanks

    We did do that for a couple of years but last time the video camera overheated and died the night before the festival started!
  12. Hello everyone! We had a wander round the site the other day. Here's the photos I took. And here's the video. It's a weekly vlog, so feel free to stop watching after the Glastonbury bit unless you want to hear my ramblings about willow! x
  13. Videos to show first timers

    Yes we can do - I wasn't sure if they'd still be wanted now their webcams are much better, but I'm sure Mr Wicked can be persuaded!
  14. Videos to show first timers

    I've just edited this video of last year's festival. Watching it all again has got me even more excited!
  15. Cue lots of political rants in the cabaret tent! I don't mind a bit of political debate every now and then, but after last year, it would've been nice to have had a break from it!
  16. Oh no - another festival right after the election!

    I think it's great that Glastonbury Festival provides something for everyone, and naturally politics is going to be an interesting part of it to many people. However, for me personally, Glastonbury provides escapism; I would rather forget the rest of the world even exists for those few days. Obviously politics was a raw subject last year, but I found it overwhelmed some of the joy of the festival and being so close to an election I'm scared this could happen again. That was all the point I was trying to make. Obviously, I tend to avoid the Left Field, but I do like to hang out in the Cabaret tent for some light entertainment. Even if you had clicked on my blog link and done some research on me, I don't think you'll be able to find who I work for or what the state of my mental health is. It was a lazy assumption of yours to think that I'm so fortunate. In a similar way, I think it's lazy of those performers who come onto the Cabaret stage and shout (or sing) abuse at the Tories the minute they walk on and assume that's all they need to do to get the audience on side with them, rather than actually try and entertain us with comedy/music/dance/variety. Like I said, I just want to escape the real world for a while and would rather not be reminded of it all the time. I think that's true for a lot of people at the festival, regardless of what their situation is in life.
  17. Reusable pint glasses

    I'm actually extremely busy making some from recycled fabrics at the moment. They will be for sale at the Water Aid stand in the Park, and possibly other places on site. Mine have a clip so you can clip it to your belt loop or bag until you get to the next bar. Not sure of cost yet. I'd be interested to know what sort of price you'd all be willing to pay?

    It's back again! The rest seems to have helped; although every morning it needs turning off and on again as it gets confused by the sunlight.

    I think that might be it from us folks. The video camera has overheated. I'll give it a rest for a few hours and try again later.

    Yeah this has happened a couple of times now - the video camera is now not coping too well with being kept on the whole time. Now sorted.

    Moved ours to show the goings on in The Park, and possibly the beginnings of Arcadia? http://www.wickedfaerie.co.uk/blog/wp-content/glasto2014.jpg

    Haha! Sorry everyone - I'll re-position the camera in the morning. More likely: Cat pounces on fly on window and lands on camera lead - Shepton Mallet Journal. (Sadly I don't have a cleaner!)

    Glad to be of service! Panorama 5 taken today

    Glad to be of help

    Have moved the camera back to the park. The fence building won't reach there today, but it looks like they might have started on the stage.
