Camping Glastonbury Festival a place worthy of a proposal…

AFTER the pandemic canceled Glastonbury two years in a row, for a festival fan it meant more than just missing out on the music.

Michael Wilson had planned to propose to his girlfriend Emily Hargraves the next time they went to their favorite festival – but Covid had postponed his questioning plan.

However, the couple traveled to Somerset over the weekend for the opening of Worthy Pastures Campsite, Pilton.

And so, on a glorious starry night in front of the Pyramid Stage, 31-year-old Michael finally got down on his knees.

“We’ve been coming to Glastonbury together every year for the past seven years,” said Emily, 29.

“We volunteer at the festival with Oxfam and have worked at many festivals – but Glastonbury is our special place.”

The couple met at school in their native Wigan and share a sausage dog, Bella.

And so after a decade together, Michael took the opportunity to bring their relationship to the main stage.

“He was planning on offering Glasto 2020 and then 2021, both of which were canceled, so Worthy Pastures was the perfect opportunity,” Emily said.

“It was a surprise!”

“We met Michael Eavis there last night and he gave us his congratulations, which was wonderful.

“We can’t wait to return to Glastonbury in 2022! »

Now there are more than one Emily and Michael with a special affinity for Worthy Farm!
