Gearing up for Glastonbury

Post categories:

Vaughan | 20:38 UK time, Thursday, 14 June 2007

By this time next weekend, those festival-goers lucky enough to have prized tickets for Glastonbury will either be loading up their backpacks or already arriving on site. And although this festival has a reputation for being a mudbath, that doesn't mean it's not accessible to disabled people. Oh no, definitely not.

Five years ago, only a couple of weeks after Ouch launched, we proved it by sending two hardy souls to Glastonbury - you can read about their exploits in our Summer Festivals Guide. However, since this dates from 2002, much of the information about disabled facilities has since changed. So what you should also do is consult a seasonedl disabled festival-goer who has been there, done it and bought the t-shirt. And more than once. Like Flash Wilson, in fact. Part of her personal website is called Glastonbury Onna Stick!, and it details all you need to know about equipping yourself for your stay on Worthy Farm for the weekend. Well, everything apart from where to get the best veggie burgers ...

And don't forget to check out the festival's own website for the official round-up of information for disabled people. Have a good time, if you're going!
