The fence is on its way up!

Activity is happening over at Glastonbury festival site. Here are the pictures! The second one is to show it in context to the stone circle, at the top right. Sorry about the haze – on a rare clear day, I’ll take more.

Funny how a glint of metal can get the heart racing so much 🙂

Thanks for the pics

I’m the poor bugger doing it were just at the top of stone circle field as of tonight (Wednesday) and were working 12 hour days 7 days a week for 28 days straight lol. but on the plus 2 free tickets and nearly a grand a week for 9 weeks erecting and dismantling. Ps. I’m a Glastonbury virgin


To Chris wood – keep up the hard work – there is many people watching the webcam

You will love Glasto.

I hope it’s everything I expect it to be. The hype is building so much especially after erecting fence and seeing all the activity. Also on a plus note I’ve just received my 2 free tickets (easy pass out) and 1 is for sale (best offer folks) contact. Chipsnegg@live.co.uk



You have mail.

Many Thanks


just to help out Chris Wood

Some people may be puzzled as normal tickets have a face image on it but I presume Chris Wood’s second ticket will be a ticket with no image on it { which is common for some of the crew } so a far better bet than buying a ticket in the hope that you will pass the face check.

Some people do get caught using someone else’s ticket – its a gamble but with a crew ticket there is no gamble.

I have worked at Glastonbury for 22 years and I know all about crew tickets.
