  1. Sorry, I didn't mean to worry you. I was just going by what I've been sent in the past.
  2. If they've said that then that will be fine. Every year they've sent me an email saying unless you have a blue badge you still need to buy a car park ticket. This year they didn't send that email so maybe it is free for everyone who has the pass now.
  3. If you have a blue badge it's free, you just need the car park pass they send and your blue badge displayed. If not you still need to pay for a car park ticket and have the disabled pass displayed underneath it.
  4. 2 please. Delivered to Chazeboy in east campervan field Tuesday. Cheers.
  5. The Strummer stone can be visited but not all the time. It is now next to a crew bar (since 2014) so isn't accessible anymore when the bar is open as there is security. If you go when the bar is closed there is no security so you can still get access to it.
  6. There was 2 badges for each efestivals World Cup
  7. Yes there are showers in the disabled camping area. There's normally about four of them. There isn't normally a queue for them except between about 8-10 in the morning. We have arrived 2ish on the Wednesday the last few years and there hasn't been any queue getting your wristband but if you then need to use the bus to the Spring ground there is normally a 30/45 minute wait.
  8. Yes even without the PA ticket you'll be able to go on the platforms and through the short cuts but only if you are with her. She'll get a pass on a lanyard that she can pass on to you so you can accompany her.
  9. The jacket was because it was during the Capello era. I had the glasses on as well but they must have come off in all the excitement of us scoring.
  10. Sorry but we won both fair and square. 2009 - you couldn't beat England's number one and we easily won. The chanting from the crowd and scenes at the end when the England fans piled on the keeper were the highlight. 2010 - this one was a bit of a closer game with a couple of dubious decisions I agree but you couldn't get near the two young Geordie brothers in midfield. Highlight of this one was when the lad was getting strechered off on a camp bed and it collapsed. Nal - Not that photo again!
  11. The eFestivals Glastonbury World Cup, England v The Rest of the World charity match for WaterAid happened twice 09 and 10 with the house band Hobo Jones and the Junkyard Dogs kicking things off. Me and Chazeboy organised it and the main reason we stopped was the amount of time it took up before the festival. Michael Eavis set us a target of £6000 to raise in 2010 and this took up a huge amount of our (and others) free time to raise over that. They were both fantastic experiences on the day though and a few of us still meet up at the eFestivals Wednesday meet to reminisce. I meet up with Chazeboy 2/3 times a year now and when drunk we have often talked about doing it again. Then we sober up and remember the effort. Anyway England won two years running so to risk that unbeaten run and the chance for Chazeboy to get hold of the cup would be stupid
  12. Did you leave a hand written sign in the shops near the green fields? I remember we saw a sign saying something like 'I've lost my wedding ring. Hand in if found otherwise I can't go home'.
  13. Definitely 2015 as the Other stage is the new shape
  14. It's excellent. It runs at set times (around hourly) to different areas of the site such as T&C field and the Park. We've used them on a few occasions and they have never been that busy. It might be a lot busier on the first and last bus of the day mind.
  15. We've had use of the disabled access for the last 3 years. We've always arrived on the Wednesday, the first time we got there just before gates opened and we queued about an hour. The second and third year we arrived at 2ish and there was no queue to get your wristbands only a wait for the buses to get people to spring ground.
