    indeed ... squeaky bum time ... although with an earlier resale that might give a bit longer to look for work if needed ...ill remain optimistic there will be a way to get there ... id just selfishly want a standard ticket ūüôā¬†

    Oxfam for me, luckily I have priority!  Fingers crossed for us both!

    Eek, let's hope we both make it!

    Someone told me last night that Oxfam rolled over Volunteer placesfrom 2020-2021 but they  haven;t rolled the same places over to 2022 - is that right ?

     

    Anyone know what decisions have been taken by other volunteer places for 2022 ? Have anyone places been rolled over from 2020 to 2022 ?

    I'm guessing for Oxfam to get priority for 2022 you now need to do 2 events this summer ? (poor friend is gutted as he was ticketless and out of all his friends he was the only one wgho then got oxfam 2020 places and now he's ticketless and volunteer placeless again)

     

    Had he applied to volunteer at any other festivals with Oxfam in 2020 or was it just Glastonbury? If¬†he had committed to 2 or more in 2020 he will have retained priority status for 2022, which thankfully I have too!¬†ūüėĬ†

    I just had a look at that website....and interestingly it appears the company are based in Penzance, Cornwall. 

    So not sure what the connection to Worthy Farm is?

    The owner is my neighbour (and friend) as the crow flies! She is one of Michael Eavis's daughters. He is a regular visitor to St Just and is president of the Methodist church here.  The milk comes from farms in Somerset and is made by Barbers. There is always a truckle or 2 in my fridge.

    Really glad to see Worthy cheese back again - haven't seen it for years! Still  have a wrapper from the last time I saw it, got to be a good 10 years or more ago, in my merchandise archive... Was on sale in Sainsbury's then.

    Could that be from  https://www.worthycheddar.co.uk/ which is run by Michaels daughter?

    Has anyone applied for a refund from See Tickets for their campervan pass or Worthy Farm etc? I emailed a week ago requesting a refund and haven't heard anything back yet. I'm happy to wait as long as necessary and appreciate that they are likely very busy but I assumed I would have received an automated message or some acknowledgement that my request had been received. Just wondering if anyone has been through this process yet or received any communication from them?

    Thanks ūüôā

    If you have a Twitter account chase them up on there as they are usually very responsive.

    Oh yeah it won't be zero. How many people usually qualify under the 8+ festivals rule over five year? My assumption is that most get it under the 2 festivals last year rule but no data to support that.

    They'll definitely need to re-jig the rules for it.

    That appears to have changed to 7 festivals in 7 years?? Which means I only need to get one under my belt this year to qualify for priority in 2022. Things are suddenly not so bleak!

    Did I read on some other thread that the campervan options this year where reduced to the east site and the County Showground as campervan West had been reallocated to Stichlinch?

    Yes you are correct, there is only the choice between East quiet/hire or general passes and offsite Bath and West Showground if you prefer access to showers or have a van over 8m in length. You will have to hope for a resale as they get snapped up very fast and as they are tied to your admission ticket they cannot be resold. Here is all the information you will need @Derbyphil https://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/information/accommodation/info-campervans-and-caravans/

    Ah hello welcome back ... all ok ? 

    All is well thanks, may have had it in March and like many won't know until we can be tested. So taking no risks as I have Menieres Disease which could be an autoimmune condition. As we live in a coastal tourist area in Cornwall we are still inundated with visitors many of who "came here to get away from Covid"  so face masks and social distancing don't apply to them! With this in mind we are still shielding and having groceries delivered. Hope you are keeping well?

    Fantastic to hear you are on the mend ... and best of luck with everyone else .... Its strange how I notice peoples absence from the forum and wonder how people are doing in these tough times and people ive not met too ... its like an extended family for me .. its just impossible to check in with everyone and when someone posts that hasn't been on here for a while its great to see them  check in , I just hope the people who have gone quiet are just battening down the hatches ... and will return once we get some positive Glastonbury news ... so yeah if you are lurking and haven't checked in for a bit ... say hello :) 

    Hello from me! :good:

    Volunteering seems to be the cheapest way of doing it. I was thinking of volunteering for Glastonbury and Download next year. That's if I don't get a ticket. It looks a bit difficult getting to the sites before the shuttle buses are running. I've been looking through, travel, options on the Google maps app.

    Oxfam have a liftshare page on Facebook which will be worth checking nearer the time. There are taxis from Castle Cary railway station if you don't get a liftshare. You will need to get to Gate B (where Oxfam camp is), the shuttles go to A and it's a fair walk by road between the two.

    I'd volunteered for Boomtown and Reading. Both of which I was looking forward to. Unfortunately, like all the other festivals, they cancelled. They're giving Priority status to us, anyway, though. ūüôā

    I was volunteering for Glastonbury and Download, as long as you secure your place in the first couple of days it will be fine. Never known anyone with priority not get a place. I'm not even trying for resale, going to volunteer as planned this year! It will be my first time volunteering at Glastonbury and my 14th Glastonbury. I have volunteered at other festivals though.

    Hey everyone!
    Two weeks ago I was organising my Glasto souvenirs and searching for the Glastonbury Free Press paper from 2013 (the 'phoenix is rising' one). I was planning on getting it framed and hang it in the living room, but unfortunately, I think it got lost somewhere during the move to our new house. I've been searching for days, but I can't find it anywhere.

    Is there anyone with a spare copy of this newspaper who could help me out?

    It is available to download if that helps....https://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/download-the-glastonbury-free-press/

    Correct, over to you! My poor husband had the misfortune of travelling on the same train, Boris attempted to make conversation with him! :lol: He is pictured here to Boris's left as they disembark.
