Glastonbury is always a highlight in our calendar, and we feel so privileged to have this very special partnership with the festival.

While we’re disappointed that this year’s festival was understandably cancelled, we’re so excited to be involved in Worthy Pastures over the summer – and we're looking forward to working with the team to bring the best event we can in 2022!

Worthy Pastures

For one summer only, Glastonbury's iconic home will be transformed into Worthy Pastures: a laid-back, family-friendly campsite with an emphasis on great food and drink, getting back to nature, and experiencing Worthy Farm in a totally new way. We're thrilled to be taking volunteers along, and we'd love for you to join us!

All WaterAid volunteers will benefit from some extra perks, including a campsite with showers, two free meals per day, and the flexibility to leave the site when not on-shift. Plus, everyone who successfully completes their volunteering shifts with us will be able to gain priority status for Glastonbury 2022, ahead of the Festival's long-awaited return next year.

Worthy Pastures will run over the summer holidays, from 20 July to 31 August, and we'll be taking teams for five to six days at a time.

Priority status for Worthy Pastures volunteers

In recognition of the invaluable experience gained by volunteering at Worthy Farm this summer, all Worthy Pastures volunteers will have the opportunity to benefit from priority status for Glastonbury 2022 – so considerably increasing their chances of being able to join our team for the Festival’s long-awaited return next year.
