  1. Thanks to all for all the extra information regarding campervans ?
  2. Thank you for all that information, we have general admission tickets again for 2019 but have thought about volunteering in the future.
  3. Just out of interest where do the various volunteer teams camp and if they have the use of a campervan would they be able to bring it on site ?
  4. Excellent mud montage there Gnomicide ! i was wondering how to describe the various stages of mud you encounter at the festival, you have captured it beautifully. In 2016 i fell flat on my back on the walk down from the campervan fields in mud like you have shown in picture 2. The back of me was covered from the ankles up to the shoulders but it was lunchtime and I laughed it off and the sun dried it out over the afternoon I was a happy bunny. I was not a happy bunny when I did exactly the same thing about 8 hours later near the caberet tent in mud as depicted in photo 4 but really deep ?
  5. Can I join you if I bring some St Agur or Shepherd's purse Yorkshire Blue ?...... I should be able to shoe horn some into my campervan fridge. oh and I rather like a drop of Madeira in my hip flask ?
  6. Ive found the answer to my question in the following thread in Questions ? Campervan fields distance to festival?
  7. We are in CV East too. Very thankful for our tickets but in the past we have always secured CV east quiet ( or family as it was descibed previously ) so we were trying for those as our first choice. Can anyone comment on how much further the walk is to the pedestrian gate ? How long is it to the furthest away CV east field ? Wherever we end up I am so happy we got festival tickets and CV tickets but I'm just trying to prepare myself for the longer walk.
  8. How many tickets are put aside for the local sale ? Not that I am interested in trying for one, I was very lucky in getting one in the main sale and I'm about 400 miles north of the catchment area ?
  9. This has made me laugh ...... you sleep in your tent how you want to mate, don't listen to the tent police !
  10. i have really loved reading this thread, thank you Peroni for starting it. The first time at Glastonbury really is amazing and there are some really great stories on here from recent converts to the real stalwarts especially Glastoworker - thank you so much for those brilliant photos and the hand drawn site plan from the very early days, what an absolute pleasure to see those ? I went to my first in 1994 ( or that is the year we have narrowed it down to ... they do kind of merge in to one after so many). Me and then boyfriend had been in Jumbo records in Leeds and had passed by Cave
  11. Penrhose you beat me to it, some similar ideas to each other ... great minds think alike ? Also dont cook in the tent, put the stove outside, but it's nice to eat in the tent, and the spirits and cordials would be decanted into plastic bottles of course
  12. I would also stay on site if at all possible, Im not sure how near or expensive the general stores in the towns around Pilton are during festival week. It's difficult to get away from the weight of bringing in your own alcohol, the lightest option would be spirits and concentrated mixers/cordial. Water is free on site, but unfortunately that's not a solution if beer or cider are your tipple. I appreciate that if you going solo you wont want to carry much extra with you on top of your tent etc but you could minimise the expense of on site takeaway food by taking some light weight foo
  13. Congratulations ? ... both on the pregnancy and getting a ticket ! We took our daugher at 8 months old, we stayed in a cottage nearby but wished that we had camped as we had always done before and which we continued to do every glastonbury since with our daughter. Good advice and reassurance from Wooderson, especially the ear defenders. The weather will have a big impact and you are right that as a first time mum ( as I was) you wont know what to expect. 3 months is quite young but your camping experience and help from family and friends will help a lot. There are some very baby
  14. OK thanks, I guess we shall see when we hopefully get onto the booking page later on this month ?
  15. So do you think someone in a group with more than one campervan can buy multiple campervan tickets together so long as on the day they all travel on site together. I'm the lead booker for 5 of us with general admission tickets and 2 campervans wanting to be parked together. I think last time we each bought our own ( even though i think you could purchase more than one) and I cant remember if they checked the names or not when we arrived. If we can buy the two at once it means we avoid the risk of our chosen campervan section selling out before the second one is bought. This is
