Ship-Shape and Glastonbury Style

Festival fashion at Glastonbury

For the last few Glastonbury Festivals, I’ve been lucky enough to work on site. I won’t say much but it involves tweeting, running around the festival site clutching a camera, and working with some of the funniest people I’ve ever met.

Corny as it sounds, going back to the festival is like going back to a family – we eat together, laugh together and work together for eight days a year and have a blast while doing so. As a result I was so busy there aren’t that many photos of me in my festival outfits, but needless to say the kimono I found during the Cabot Circus Style Challenge was with me most days and fitted the relaxed festival vibe perfectly.

Glastonbury is so big, covering so many different genres of music, not to mention comedy, politic, poetry and circus acts, that it’s a very individual experience for each ticket holder. Mine included seeing The Rolling Stones (a band my father got me into), teaching friends and co-workers how to apply glitter to their faces with hilarious results, and a rather liberating talk on feminism in the Leftfield tent.

Before the talk I was lucky enough to meet Lucy Holmes, founder of the No More Page Three campaign which was wonderful – the way she spoke with so much passion, energy and common sense really resonated with me. I’m not sure that Ship-Shape is the right place to start talking politics, media and feminism, but it certainly got me thinking a lot about what topics I’d like to cover in the future.

I was on Instagram quite a lot whilst at the festival so head over there if you want to see what I got up to, and if you attended Glastonbury – or watched at home – tell me what your favourite festival moment was!

    SOB. I don’t think that last comment went through!

    So glad you had a lovely time, thank goodness I read your Cabot Circus post because I ran out and nabbed a pair of those New Look shorts. Also, yay for meeting Lucy Holmes! I love reading her updates. Fingers crossed it won’t be long until Page 3 is no more.

      Oh I hate it when that happens – thanks for typing it out again and hurrah for the shorts – I’ve already worn them on a camping trip and to St Pauls Carnival since Glasto :)
