Worthy causes


We were sorry to hear that Glastonbury 2020 had to be cancelled. This was clearly the right thing to do to ensure the safety of Festival-goers, traders, volunteers, staff and the wider community.

The Joint Charities team (OxfamGreenpeace & WaterAid) are not only charity partners of the Glastonbury Festival but also major benefactors. Through the incredible support of Michael and Emily Eavis, the team come together at Glastonbury to show how you, Festival-goers, can make positive changes with significant global impact. Whether this is by pledging to help the world’s poorest people, acting against climate change, or improving access to clean water, hygiene and sanitation, we share a common goal to improve the lives of people and our planet.

The Joint Charities team will hugely miss seeing you all this year at Worthy Farm, but rest assured the plans are already coming together to make 2021 extra special.
