Greener Festivals

During its four days the annual Glastonbury Festival brings nearly 200,000 people to a country site on a UK farm.

This page has not been updated since June 2014.

Here are some links to informative sites and other downloadable resources that may be of interest to Green Pilgrimage Network members:
