Andrew Kerr, who was in his eighty-first year, died today at 2.30 pm. He had been ill for some time and went into Yeovil Hospital yesterday. Andrew came to me in 1970 with ideas to run a free festival, and with the help of Arabella Churchill and others he raised the necessary funds.
He brought a new green conviction to Worthy Farm, raising environmental and ecological concerns to a national level of debate for the very first time. His charisma and charm dissolved any opposition to the Festival and the Glastonbury we know now owes so much to his vision.
