Scan the lineup for a gap between tractor pulling and freak pointing where they could play a secret set.

Not gonna lie, I am actually looking forward to my first ever Tractor and Cider festival. I hope they don't get the pitchforks out though, when I ask for a pint of lager

Another West Country thing to do is a carnival … Bridgwater being the best … but they are in all the big towns Around fireworks night … although don’t think they will be on this year … recommend YouTubing it … something else if you’ve never seen it

Ooohhh, controversial. Glastonbury carnival is best! 

Seriously tho, carnival is probably Somerset's best kept secret.

Already been cancelled. The Carnival Clubs spend most of the year fundraising and building. With COVID they haven't been able to do either.

I thought I’d heard that … although I didn’t know how much would be pre built from before … and wether they could just screw in the lightbulbs and just get on the road !!

Mostly new build each year. Design and  build takes most of the year too. Some of the bigger carts cost 10's of £k each year. Many of the clubs benefit from donations from the festival in return for stewarding duties. All cancelled for this year sadly.

Just make sure they don't put tanning bulbs in.

Google it. Most boondocks story I've ever heard. It was my favourite cart that year, too

Surely this can’t be announced in August , not much time unless there are 100% sure of a sell out 

Me and Mrs c were saying that last night. Folk need time to make arrangements for time off, child minding, booking transport and accommodation especially bearing in mind the location of the farm. Shifting 40k tickets quickly could be problematic unless it’s a stellar line up.  We’ve everything in place apart from the tickets!

It really is. Was not aware of this at all

A few years ago I was in Sicily during Carnival. Heard about this town called Acireale which is famous for it's parade so went along. 

This video (not by me) is from the year I went

One of our Glastonbury group owns a BnB in Aci Trezza, minutes from there. Never mentioned this! Might time our next visit to him so we can catch this.
