The Croissant Neuf Field is the pop-up village green of this pop-up city that Glastonbury Festival has become. Come and find us – just over the old railway line on the left –as you make your pilgrimage up to the Stone Circle in the King’s Meadow’s Sacred Space. Here we are keeping alive the vision, principles and spirit of our festival heritage and culture, having been an integral cog in the wheel of the festival for nearly three decades.
We are all about sustainability and jolly good fun – Sustainable Eco-tainment purity, harnessed from the Sun. The Sun conjures up a sultry summer daze of happy smiley faces, bronzed sun kissed bodies, buzzing outdoor activities, music, laughter and, of course, oodles of Solar power, all charged and ready to power an eclectic line-up on the Croissant Neuf Stage and bandstand to suit everyone’s palate. We are not fuelled by competition and consumption but by solar power, subtle solutions and a determination to live a harmonious and sustainable lifestyle with our planet and each other, mixing the old back to basics and simplicity with modern day technologies and solutions.
You can chat to the experts who are already practising these ideas, beliefs and practicalities and find solutions and knowledgeable answers to your questions on sustainability. Pioneers of solar power Wind & Sun Ltd, Solar Energy Alliance and Ecotricity will be on hand for advice and discussions, as will Bristol based Ecomotive for your Eco-build solutions.
Around the field there is an array of market stalls and exhibits all with their own sustainable and Fairtrade ethos – from local to global – and always a good browse and a bargain to be had. Next to the Croissant Neuf venue is award-winning Fat Belly’s Café with their sumptuous range of organic Fairtrade meals, munchies and slurpies and you’ll find it hard to walk past Shepherd’s organic sheep’s ice cream van without grabbing one!
Once you have trundled around the festival site and made it up the main drag, past the old railway, you’ll be wanting to take a break, sit down, rest your weary feet – and head – so park your butt on our own crew hand-crafted wooden seats and recycled plank chairs and table, courtesy of local craftsman tt Woodwork, under the magnificent timber frame from local-based Cutting Edge Timber Frames. Do check out the giant redwood Round Table with giant wooden thrones to match, made by English Garden Art team, whilst soaking up the ambience of the organic festival vibe that this little field has created for you. We even have a village pond to sit by.
