  • In A Field Of Their Own: The Pyramid/Other Stage | Glastonbury Festival
    so many memories from my past and more youthful days But Coldplay are a huge Act and Beyonce is sure to give a truly exciting performance Then one cannot forget Paul Simon a true legend The Chemical Brothers and their fantastic music and stage shows up coming Jessie J Mumford and Sons Plan B and even Fisherman s Friends there really is something for everyone covering all musical tastes and genres 4 Do you have any good food recommendations in and around your area Not really 5 How when did you first get involved with the Festival I first become involved with Michael Eavis when I was asked to handle the Production Management of the Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra back in 1996 The following year I took over the Pyramid and Other Stage at the main festival Now I am responsible for the Production of The Pyramid and The Other Stage and I supervise West Holts and the John Peel Stage as well I still manage the Abbey Extravaganza in August and now look after the Pilton Party in September as well so Glastonbury Festivals Ltd keeps me and my team pretty busy 6 What s the best thing about running an area at Glastonbury The huge thrill and high that you get from seeing a sea of smiling faces and waving hands when you look out from the stage into the crowd 7 And what s the worst It is a huge pressure and massive responsibility that takes over your life in my case for 3 or 4 months of each year In that time I am pretty much an insomniac and it can be very demanding on the patience and understanding of my dear wife family friends 8 Is there anything outside your area

  • Green blog 2011 | Glastonbury Festival
    avoidable Right I m off to listen to some bands I can t believe it s the last day tomorrow and there s still so many great things to blog about Friday June 24 Since spending time living in rural Nicaragua with no running water but where everyone starts the day immaculately clean with a bucket and bowl wash I ve upped my festival standards on the cleanliness front After a brilliant but sweaty late night out dancing I woke up feeling in need of an immediate refresh so opted for the bucket and bikini outside the tent I ll be trying out the solar showers in the Greenpeace Field over the weekend We did however pop in to check out the animated film in the solar powered Groovy Movie Picture House at the entrance to the Green Fields It s a great place for a bit of downtime watching independent animations and political films I love hearing the great variety of music drifting across from so many different stages tents and the odd wooden bandstand as we meander around the site It s pretty unique to be able to dip into somewhere to listen to a couple of songs like this band in the solar powered Croissant Neuf tent and then twenty paces later be in a totally different experience After listening to Jenny and Johnny on the Park stage and admiring the fence décor of the local primary schools eco artwork we spent a relaxing late afternoon chilling out in the Green Kids toddler tipi tent with friends Wandering back through the Greenpeace Field I bumped into an old friend Veronica on the Fairtrade Foundation www fairtrade org uk stand where my daughter Winnie enjoyed chomping her way through yummy Fairtrade dried apricots from Tropical Wholefoods www tropicalwholefoods com and I got stuck in to the chocolatey deliciousness of Divine s special Glastonbury festival bar www divinechocolate com Along with Cafedirect www cafedirect co uk and nut company Liberation www chooseliberation com Divine takes empowerment through Fairtrade a significant step further as the farmers who supply the cocoa from Kuapa Kokoo in Ghana are part owners of the company and sit on the board I rounded off the samplings from some of my favourite Fairtrade companies with a smooth full bodied organic double espresso supplied by worker s cooperative Equal Exchange www equalexchange co uk served up skilfully by the team at the lovely Cafe Tango Winnie s yet to try an olive and there is no better place for an induction than with the infectiously enthusiastic head over heels in love with each other their olives and vegetable growing Cina and Christian on the Olive n Learn stand in the farmers market They seem to be taking their name seriously experimenting with all different varieties of home grown garlic chillies and herbs to complement the juicy plump olives grown by their friends in Catalonia Winnie pulled a few hilarious faces as she tentatively licked it before nibbling one all the way back to our tent to get ready for an evening of Caribou and salsa dancing Tomorrow I ll be checking out the free happy hour in the Green Craft village and seeing who s won this year s Green Trader awards Thursday June 23 Ambling across the vast field in front of the Pyramid Stage this morning which tomorrow will be full of happy revellers we came across a giant poo Or rather the very cheerful considering his situation Nick Ashby of WaterAid dressed as a poo He is showing an admirable commitment to a very important cause WaterAid s LooQueue campaign www wateraid org other looqueue at Glastonbury which aims to sign up at least 30 000 festival goers to petition the UK government to commit to help the two thirds of the World s population out of the sanitation crisis in which they live An unimaginable 2 6 billion people live without access to clean toilets a major cause of ill health and death What makes a good clean toilet Our way flushing gallons of water down the loo every day seems neither very sustainable or logistically possible for most people who are lacking a loo My friend Emma Sinclair has become something of a poo expert since joining children s charity Plan International www plan uk org and living and working in West Africa Having attended many a poo workshop I learn from her that a crucial aspect in building adequate sanitation in communities is ensuring everyone takes ownership and responsibility for it If people have always pooed wherever they want in the nearby trees then they are unlikely to use a latrine if it just suddenly arrives because they won t realise the need for it Education then plays a big part e g showing how a fly lands on a poo then moves on to land on their food Communities are encouraged to construct their own latrines using local materials the most important thing is that they have a washable slab and that they re covered The approach is called Community Led Total Sanitation www communityledtotalsanitation org How much poo we all produce becomes much more apparent and distressing to me when there are 175 000 of us using portaloos and drop toilets I don t normally consider what happens to poo I just flush a load of water down with it feel bad about that but relieved that it s gone and move on I want to look for a more interesting eco solution here at Glastonbury so I head up to the Green Traveller Cyclist camping field I want to find a waterless odourless toilet and I hear that composting toilets are just the thing Indeed as I approach there are no mal odours just beautifully painted impeccably clean drop toilets Their proud owner Squeak of the cheekily named PooNarnia it has a more staid web address eventloo co uk tells me that through creating such a pleasant toilet
