We’re extremely sorry to report that a much-loved member of the Festival’s crew, Toby Lovegrove, passed away suddenly in Thailand this week.
Toby’s family have worked at the Festival for many years, with Toby coming to Glastonbury from early childhood and going on to work as a lighting technician for the Glade and Silver Hayes areas. Toby was a hugely valued member of the Festival’s crew and Glastonbury was, according to Toby’s family, “his favourite place on earth”.
We send our thoughts and our love to Toby’s family and his many friends.
A crowd-funding site has been set up to help pay to bring Toby home from Thailand and to pay for his funeral. Anyone who wishes to donate, can click here.
