I'd always wanted to go to the festival; but over the years worsening disability, lack of funds/time/companions - you put things on the back-burner, don't you.
A couple of months ago the thought popped into my mind again. I sent an email asking if it was possible to go, expecting all tickets to be allocated. When they wrote back saying I could apply for a 'disabled' 1 day pass I went for it! A suitable B+B was easily found and on Saturday we packed up and drove the 300 miles to Somerset.
One of my helpers came along and we had a fantastic time! The sun shone all the time and people were so helpful. I loved the side shows, people with novelty acts and big personalities. Big Top had amazing ariel acrobatics, jugglers and limbo dancers; colourful costumes, music, so much adrenalin.
Sunday night we saw Mumford and Sons, the atmosphere was electric! To be there, standing with 10s of thousands singing and cheering felt unreal. And quite an achievement!
I can finally say 'I was there'
