    Best Transportation for a Kid

    Hi there If it's only 1 child then I would say there's plenty space for snuggling down with the aid of blankets cushions etc. We never used it at Glastonbury but did at other festivals and it managed fine in the mud though didn't have any epic muddy ones. Just Google bike trailers and see if there's any that look better tyre wise

    Oxfam Volunteering 12th Feb

    Yes- stuff like this makes me very angry I don't normally get too agitated on my posts on here but I remember a few years back having a real go at someone who was going to sag off their litter picking shifts.

    Best Transportation for a Kid

    When our 2 were younger we used one of these type of bike trailers We decorated with fairy lights so was easy to be seen at night. I found it easier as it was pushing rather than pulling like with a trolley. Still have it to use as transport for stuff to/from car

    Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2019

    An old favourite band of mine Goodbye Mr Mackenzie (Shirley Manson was in them before Garbage) are touring in May to celebrate 30 years since release of their debut album Good Deeds and Dirty Rags. Only 3 dates in Scotland so slim chances of being at Glastonbury but rediscovered the album recently and forgot how good it was

    Nile Rodgers & Chic just announced for 21st June at Eden sessions Be great if they were to come back to the farm- their set at West Holts in 2013 is 1 of my favourite ever Glastonbury sets

    The Volunteering thread 2019

    Following on from what LeeHC said it could be tricky. My team leader in 2016 had her caravan on site but here and her husband were long time workers and I believe that her husband needed to be on site well before so was able to get it up in Tom's field. Other people I know who take their campervan have to park it in the normal campervan fields and then walk from there to where they are working. They are veterans too. So I think probably a no but as LeeHC says no harm in asking.

    Yes you're right. Veteran is after 5 years but as you say you can get on site beforehand even if you don't get those shifts. If I'm not successful with the pre-festival shifts (as I believe it's names out of a hat as they are oversubscribed) then I will probably head down on the Monday anyways. Re crew camps. Tom's field is just for recycling crew these days I believe and as others have said Oxfam is nearish to Gate B as is the Festaff one

    Back for 6th year on recycling crew this year. Hoping for pre-festival shifts if I'm lucky. Get an interesting perspective on the site before it's open to the public
