A new exhibition of classic Glastonbury Festival photographs – reproduced in giant wall-sized scale! – has opened today at the Assembly Rooms, Glastonbury. Entry is free and the exhibition runs until Saturday, 31st October, opening from 12-6pm each day (closed Sunday and Monday).

At the home of the very first Glastonbury arts’ celebration (founded by Rutland Boughton in 1914) more than fifty images chart the beginnings, the struggles and the enduring legend of the world’s largest open air green fields Festival.

Also displayed is a stunning large scale (3 metres) canvas reproduction of Stanley Donwood’s ‘Moons Over Pilton’ image from 2015, signed by the artist.
