2023 Glastonbury Town Events

I’m so glad we can be reasonably confident of Glastonbury’s regular calendar of events going ahead next year, it’s wonderful to see the town come alive, there is literally something on every weekend, which makes the place vibrant in any season. I compiled this list of the major Glastonbury Town Events taking place in 2023 for my Crap Views of the Tor Calendar. I’m hoping you’ve purchased one and you are using it to plan your next visit to the town. If you’re local perhaps you are planning your escape to somewhere else!

I hope you find this information useful, do check with the organisers in advance of making any bookings, I can’t be held responsible for any cancelled events, errors or omissions! This is by no means an exhaustive list, it only includes the major events that were able to confirm their dates for 2023 at the time of compilation. For occasional tips on what’s coming up see my Facebook page.

I’ve added links to blog posts I’ve written about past events to give you a flavour of what to expect when you visit the town throughout the seasons.
