Here at Jolly Green Sherpas we pride ourselves in volunteer welfare and making sure you have a good weekend. We operate at some of the UK's biggest and best festivals... see our future events page to see what we have coming up.

 

Big Green Coach was established in January 2009 to fill a niche in the market for an ethical, environmentally aware coach company to work closely with music festivals. The fact that coach is the greenest form of getting to a music festival appeared to be an afterthought for other coach companies and we wanted to make the public more aware that they could make a real reduction to the festivals carbon footprint by arriving by coach.

 


We are the main link between the Isle of Wight and the mainland. Every year, we carry over 5 million passengers, making us one of the UK’s largest domestic ferry operators. We provide Island residents with an easy and frequent service to the mainland, as well as giving millions of holidaymakers from all across the UK and beyond a taste of Island life.

WaterAid is dedicated to its vision of a world where everyone has access to safe water and sanitation. To achieve this vision WaterAid relies on the energy and talents of many people who give their time without receiving any payment. These supporters contribute to WaterAid’s work in many ways including raising funds, organising or speaking at events and providing support in WaterAid offices. WaterAid gains enormous benefit from the contributions of supporters.

 


Here at The Really Good Bar Company we feel that the customers, performers, crew and everyone involved in creating a great event deserve to be served great drinks well. This is why we work so hard to create a genuinely diverse product range customised to each event we work with. You won’t find homogenised, overpriced products but you will almost certainly discover several new local ales, a good selection of well served draught lagers and ciders, a premium spirit selection, deliciously seasonal cocktails and interesting UK, European & New World wines as well as a good range of soft drinks & juices

About Glastonbury

The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts, commonly abbreviated to Glastonbury, is a British performing arts festival, best known for its contemporary music, but also for dance, comedy, theatre, circus, cabaret and other arts. The festival organiser Michael Eavis a farmer in a Somerset valley stated that he decided to host the first festival, then called Pilton Festival, after seeing an open air Led Zeppelin concert at the Bath Festival of Blues and Progressive Music 1970.

Campsite Facilities

Different areas have different atmospheres. For example, Pennard Hill Ground, between The Park and The Healing Fields, is a popular, lively spot. It has a culture of its own with people returning year on year. Alternatively, camping zones on the periphery of the Festival, such as Limekilns and Hitchin Hill Ground, tend to be quieter. Some camping fields are very busy and fill up quickly but there is usually more camping space to the west of the site near the Park. Camping areas are marked out on the site map.

Although the capacity of Glastonbury Festival remained the same as previous years' a substantial new area of extra camping space was brought in for 2011's Festival. The extra space is close to the west car parks, just over the concrete road and a very short walk to the main site and entertainment areas.

There was also a new Family Camping area, on the north-west of the site at Wicket Ground.

Welfare

The Welfare Centres provide experienced, caring and confidential help for all kinds of practical and personal problems, as well as dealing with lost & found property. There are three main welfare services: Waggonshed Welfare, Green Welfare, and The Samaritans.

Waggonshed Welfare

Waggonshed Welfare: Based, unsurprisingly, in the waggonshed by the farmhouse, this is the main centre for practical welfare support. If your problem is practical rather than medical, try here first. A good place to go if you lose all your kit, for example - not least because they also handle Lost Property during the festival. They also look after found children after 8pm (found kids are looked after in the Kidz Field until that time).

Green Welfare

Situated just beyond the railway line at the entrance to the Green Fields, Green Welfare is a good place to head for if you have any problem and are on that side of the site.

The Samaritans

The Samaritans: The Festival Branch of Samaritans have been going to Glastonbury since 1974 offering 24 hour emotional support. They have a team of volunteers who work shifts throughout the day and night dealing confidentially with upset, depressed or suicidal people. The Samaritans' tent (with prominent green and white "SAMARITANS" banners and huge flags) will be situated in the Main Markets area, near Whitelake Bridge, between the Pyramid and Other Stages.
