Visitors can still connect with Glastonbury Town during the health crisis – here’s how to bring some Glastonbury magic into your own home.
I was so looking forward to Spring in Glastonbury this year, coming out of Winter’s hibernation to meet visitors from around the world, May Day, community gatherings, gigs, picnics in the park, watching the world go by in the High Street, Glastonbury Festival…….
I’m so very sad it’s not to be and sadder still for those of you who were looking forward to visiting our magical little Town. The community is getting together to support each other and individually we have an opportunity to focus on our creativity. We’ll be writing, crafting, painting, songwriting, knitting, stretching, making, cooking, inventing, recording, meditating and sharing through this crisis. We’re still here and we’ll be here for you when it’s all blown over. We just need to help each other.
Many of us in the Town depend on income from visitors, understandably we’re really worried about how we survive financially, so where we can we’ve put our goods and services online. You can connect with us by buying locally made items by mail order, streaming and downloading art and music, attending online workshops and more.
I’ve always wanted Normal For Glastonbury to be an online portal so that Glastonbury’s magic can reach you wherever you are in the world. I wanted to create a wonderful interactive website where people could showcase their creativity, but that takes time and skills I don’t yet possess. So here’s my offering to you, a simple online database of Glastonbury websites. More are being added all the time.
Please do support us so we can be here for you, when Glastonbury opens its doors again and we can welcome you back into the Heart of Avalon.
Stay well and see you all soon xx
