    Yeah, they were there last year and have sent an email saying they're expecting places this year so I've registered my interest, so fingers crossed. Interesting to see where the crew site will be this year.

    The ticket price is beyond me so looking to get in with WBC. Did it with them in 2016 and enjoyed it. It's a shift every day but they fly by and I only missed 1 1/2 sets that I really wanted to see.

    There's a thread all about it on here somewhere. It'll need someone more technically minded than me to be able to link it though.
  5. I seem to remember that this is what actually happened in the late 90s (or at least I didn't know who was playing until I got there). I loved it then but the obsessive in me probably wouldn't cope so well these days.
  6. Up above the stones for me. If ever I'm on a Glastonbury wander I'll inevitably gravitate there. It's been my favourite spot since the trees up there were mere saplings. My friends sister was scattered above the Park, somewhere near where the rainbow man was this year.
  7. I'm firmly in the pain in the arse corner. Ok, they make striking photo but do nothing to improve the atmosphere of a gig. I was stood near one at the cure, it bloody stank. Girl near me had to move because it set her ashma off.
  8. I know a few people who had been regulars but stopped going in the late 2000s because it had changed so much. My sister in law did it once, hated it, left early and has never been back.
  9. Seahorses on the Other some time in the late 90s were really awful.
  10. We had a week in Bavaria last week which was ace. Going camping on the west Pembrokeshire coast next week but that's about it for us. Pretty skint at the moment.
  11. Definitely not being hoodwinked and it's not an issue as such. The difference is that Ecotricity and Good Energy are investing in and building new sources of renewable energy, therefore creating more of it. Bulb are just buying green energy that's already been produced then selling it on. You can argue in doing so that it's creating the demand for more renewable energy to be made but, for me, that's not the same as actively creating more of it.
  12. No one seems to have mentioned (unless I've missed it) but switching to a green energy company is one of the best things you can do. A proper one like Ecotricity or Good Energy that actually invest in new renewable energy, not the likes of Bulb or Octopus who aren't really driving change. It costs more but worth it I think. Ecotricity also have a mobile phone offering, Ecotalk, who invest their profits into buying land to return to nature. We're pretty good at home but our meat intake is where we're falling down. Also, Mrs Hew is half German so we fly over to see the family at least once a year.
  13. That's awesome advice, thanks so much
  14. Thanks for the MFP recommendations, juat downloaded it. Hopefully that will help keep me away from the biscuits and cake in the office. 1st run of my half marathon training this morning. Just 2 miles but did it before breakfast which was a mistake. Any tips on a decent pre run small breakfast/snack?
  15. Finially haf the energy to get out for a run yesterday and hit 6k. It was tough! Just put together my training plan to vet ready for the Stroud half in October. I'm now very scared.
