EAGLE-eyed viewers of this year’s Glastonbury BBC TV coverage may have spotted a local town, literally flagged up, at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset.
Festival-goers from Holmfirth got a prime standing space at the Pyramid Stage to see Don McLean’s set on Sunday afternoon and the flag was later spotted during the Kaiser Chiefs set at the Other Stage.
This photograph was sent to us by Brighton-based Paul Whitehead, of Western PR.
As a Glasto regular since 1990, he was also watching and filming the Don McLean set.
Former journalist Paul, said: “I spotted the banner at the Pyramid Stage on Sunday afternoon, and shot it. It’s not a photoshop job.”
Paul added that he took the snap to send to a client, international motivational business speaker Nicky Pattinson, who lives in Holmfirth, as a nice surprise.
Among Paul’s highlights from this year’s extravaganza was Melanie on the Spirit of 71 stage, the laser show from the Queens Of The Stone Age set on the Other Stage, Thea Gilmore and Pentangle.
“The sheer size and scale of the place is remarkable,” he said. “The magic just keeps drawing you back year after year.”
