    Thank you. I had to complete the profile and get a reference by email but t think they confirmed the details and sent info anyway. I got sent a training video to watch but didn’t have to attend training or complete a live online thing. It seems like quite a few places came up in the week before the festival. So there is always hope. I’ll send my details if I can work our how to send a pm.

    Need to clarify that I finally got my space after browsing efestivals and somebody posted that there were oxfam spaces up.

    Hi. I didn’t miss out on shelter but got my place very late at oxfam last year after months of obsessive page resfresjing at multiple and random times every day. If you do decide to open your alert group i would love to be added. But no worries if not. I’ll post on the forum if I do ever come across spaces. X

    Hi. Thanks for this info. Yes my local branch had places last year and as far as I’m aware there were no problems. I’ll contact the rep this week to double check. I’m not guaranteed a place but the way they explained their allocations policy last year suggested I’d have a good chance of getting a place.

    Sorry I appear to have gone from a forum lurker of many years to a full time dedicated dog spammer.

    While we are on the dog theme. They’ll be happy if I continue to fail to get tickets.

    Aw Lovely Billy. Our dogs are 14 and16 so hard to leave them but we have a great dog grandad to help. I think I got sent to Michael Eavis’s gate that shift so it was quiet but got to see ME a couple of times. Probably better than just hanging around the Oxfield. Will keep checking in for spaces with oxfam and try the resale. Are you going again this year?

    Hi @gazzared. It might have been your post that led me to get the ticket. I think we met briefly one morning in Oxfield before being sent off to different gates. Seem to remember you had just got a dog not long before the festival.

    My late spot came up on a Sunday afternoon. I was just browsing Efestivals when somebody said spots were up. I had given up on Glastonbury and hasn’t booked leave. I got a space and spent a week frantically trying to arrange cover at work I tempted to book leave now just in case and to get into the habit of checking oxfam several times a day. Perhaps every time I make a brew at work.

    Hi. I lurked around efestivals forum last year and got a place for oxfam a week before so don’t give up hope. I also got an atypical shift pattern with two early shifts so was very happy with that. This morning was more brutal than ticket day. I will have a chance to volunteer with my trade union for WBC. Does anyone know how the campsite compares to the Oxfam one?
  12. Hi. Thanks to all the tips above. I’ve been a long time lurker on this thread and thanks to Amnesiac_Toad I’ve just got a place via Oxfam. So excited. And stunned.

    Resale Club 2019

    Been looming in the background of these forums for years. Had a good run of getting tickets since 2010. Previously went a few times in 1990s. This time I have been consistently unsuccessful in main ticket sale and now the campervan sale. Not sure if I can handle the tension of resale day in April. At least the friends who got tickets got their campervan pass so I could pitch my tent with them if I get lucky.
