“The terrorist attack this week in Manchester has left us all here at Glas-Denbury totally shocked and devastated to our core, as it has everyone. We are thinking of everyone involved in it and our thoughts go out to those families affected by this tragedy. We also want to highlight how immensely in awe we are of the emergency services and the public who gave assistance and we send our support to the arena and station staff and the artists who performed than night who must also be suffering immensely.
Glas-Denbury is a colourful, happy, smiley family festival and when something so shocking as this happens at another event, it is hard to find those smiles and that colour to continue, through the grief and shock.
We want to reassure everyone that we had already worked with the police and taken advice with regards to the threat of terrorism and as a result already have in place an immensely secure yet comfortable level of policing throughout the event. With this weeks incident in mind though and the threat level now at critical, we will of course be reviewing and developing our security and checks in accordance. As with most events, we are now asking that day ticket holders to the festival avoid bringing bags with them wherever possible. We understand of course that some may need to bring bags, but please, consider whether you really need to? We already have thorough bag checks and searches in place, but this will now be increased and intensified and we do not wish to delay any of you in getting into the arena to enjoy the festival. The less bags to be checked the easier and quicker this will be! Of course we understand that campers will need to bring bags but please be prepared to have your bags checked and be patient with us in the knowledge that we have your safety and the safety of your friends and family at the forefront of our minds.
We so look forward to welcoming you all to Glas-Denbury”
“Anyone who has fond memories of Glasto but can’t face the idea of the crowds and mud with small people, Glas-Denbury might just be the festival for you. Celebrating the South West’s talented musicians, artists, writers and entertainers, it’s a family friendly music festival on green fields. Nominated for several awards, the festival organisers are committed to making it “comfortable, safe, happy and inspirational” – it’s definitely on our list this year.

Meet Glas-Denbury’s Guardians. These wonderful people are as passionate as we are about community, collaberation and support and it is these people who make up our crew – from all walks of life they give up their time to come together to support, plan, build, decorate and run the festival.
It is truly awe inspiring to watch what a group of kind human beings can achieve together for the benefit of others.
Our pledge to the community we exist and are situated in;
