WaterAid 2017

We’re never happier than when we’re on Worthy Farm, especially when we’re talking to incredible people like you about our favourite subject: taps and toilets.

And this year, we’ll be inviting festival-goers to join The Water Fight – the global movement to reach children everywhere with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.


Every child, no matter where they are, has a dream about what they’ll be when they grow up. But not every child has the opportunity to make it happen.

Unbelievably, around the world 1 in 10 children don’t have clean water close to home and 1 in 3 don’t have a decent toilet.

For them, it’s normal to have to walk to a muddy pond to collect water. It’s normal to miss lessons because they are sick with diarrhoea from drinking dirty water. It’s normal to drop out when they get their period because there’s no private toilet at school.

We want to change this.

Join The Water Fight and ask the UK Secretary of State for International Development, to make sure all UK Government plans for schools globally include taps and toilets for every child.

Our team of volunteers

And of course, it wouldn’t be Glastonbury without our team of truly tremendous volunteers. They’ll be spending their time at the Festival hard at work, manning our water kiosks and Pyramid Stage stand, recycling rubbish and looking after our legendary ShePees.

Our sanitation superheroes, the Loo Crew, will also be back – doing an amazing job keeping the long drops spick and span, so you always have somewhere nice and fresh to go to the loo.

We can’t wait to be back on the farm in 2017!
