Glastonbury Extravaganza ~ Coach from Old Oaks
EVENT NOT YET CONFIRMED FOR 2021
In light of the current unprecedented circumstances – which include the temporary closure of the Glastonbury Abbey – we are sorry to announce that this year’s Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza will not now be able to go ahead.
Pack up your picnic basket, grab a couple of chairs and enjoy the thrill of this legendary open air music event, set in the glorious Glastonbury Abbey grounds.
Now into its' 24th year, Glastonbury Extravaganza (run by Michael Eavis of Glastonbury Festival), is a not to be missed, summer highlight for locals and visitors to our town. It's a real occasion, with stage screens, beautiful water fountains, lights, candelabra, picnics, and a fireworks finale.
Over the years, the Musical Extravaganza has staged many incredible performances (we know, we've been to one or two!), including Madness, Paulo Nutini, George Ezra, Status Quo, Bryan Ferry, Ray Davies, Morrison and Catherine Jenkins to name but a few.
Why not make an evening of it?
Gates open at around 5pm and the music starts at 7pm. Regulars to the event like to make a real occasion of it and can be seen setting up tables with candlesticks and flowers, and sipping from champagne flutes (own alcohol is permitted), chatting and enjoying the atmosphere and ambience of the beautiful Abbey grounds.
Parking in Glastonbury on Extravaganza day can be notoriously difficult, so why not book a seat on the Old Oaks at just £8.50 per person, return. This way, you can leave the car behind, maybe have a glass or two of the local tipple with no worries about parking or traffic jams.
Tickets for the event are available from the Glastonbury Abbey website or the Abbey shop and are expected to sell out quickly, as they always do.
Coach departs Old Oaks at 4.30pm. (subject to change when full details of event are available).
Returns from coach park (5 mins from Abbey) at 11.15pm
Book a pitch at Old Oaks Touring Park
