Glastonbury announce one year conversion into family focused Worthy Pastures campsite
Ever wanted to camp at Glastonbury Festival, just without the bands? And most of the people? And with easier access to nappy changing facilities? 2021 is for you, because with no Glastonbury Festival this year the Eavis family are converting their fields into a family friendly campsite (presumably with singalongs).
“With no Festival taking place on Worthy Farm for a second consecutive year in 2021, Michael and Emily Eavis are pleased to invite campers, for one year only, to experience the farm in a way you’ve never been able to before.
Over the school holidays, Worthy Farm will become Worthy Pastures – a tranquil, family-friendly campsite which will welcome guests to get back to basics in nature, with a range of pre-erected, unfurnished bell tents and scout tents available to hire for 3-, 4- and 5-night stays.
Worthy Pastures will be set up sympathetically to reflect the rural, farming activities of the existing site, as well as capturing the essence of the Glastonbury Festival with its familiar style of signage, painted bins and décor.
This serene, pre-erected campsite will provide a pastoral escape, featuring well-spaced tents, spread across Worthy Farm, with a central village green at Williams Green, hosting the best of local food traders selected by the Glastonbury Festival markets team, along with speciality coffees, a campsite bar and village store selling local produce and freshly baked bread.
Family Festival-favourites the Kidz’ Field Pink Castle and Green Kids Cadmus Ship will be available to enjoy, whilst the Pyramid field will be open for picnics, bike rides and generally enjoying the beautiful natural surroundings in the Vale of Avalon, close to Glastonbury Tor and all of Somerset’s magical attractions.
Intrepid explorers are welcome to roam the farm to find the Dragon, sheltering in the shade of its pond, with the Stone Circle providing the perfect spot to watch the sun rise or set. Festival fans will also recognise some familiar sights amongst the site décor, which will have a distinct Festival flavour, delivered with a family-friendly audience in mind.
Showers and property lock-up facilities will be available onsite, and Glastonbury’s three main supported causes, Oxfam, Greenpeace and WaterAid will be joining us, with a shared focus on tackling climate change. A programme of additional activities will be published on a weekly basis as campers arrive (please visit the campsite hubs on arrival for more information).
Please note that Worthy Pastures is not a party venue: there will not be any live music, soundsystems will not be allowed and a noise curfew will be in place after 11pm. Instead, come for nature, fresh air, calm and tranquillity.
With a focus on providing a safe, comfortable and relaxed environment, Worthy Pastures will provide the perfect base camp for a break exploring everything Somerset has to offer, and our information team in partnership with Visit Somerset will be happy to help with recommendations of local attractions, days out and activities for all ages.
After what has been a challenging year for so many, we’re so pleased to be able to provide the opportunity for our crew to do what they do best, and we can’t wait to welcome our first guests back onto the Farm. It will be a much-needed boost to morale all round!
Bookings for short breaks will open at 10am on Saturday 1st May, via Seetickets.com.”
