Festival Spotlight: Glastonbury

clock Tuesday, June 15, 2010 at 04:04PM

 There are some great costumes in our new Festival costume rangeGlastonbury is one of the biggest festivals in the UK, celebrating all kinds of music and of course mud! The festival began in 1970, the day after legend Jimi Hendrix died and since has become an event every music lover wants to put in their diaries.

Later in 1971 the festival took a medieval tradition of music, dance, theatre and poetry and was known as the Glastonbury Fayre. However, in 1981 Glastonbury Fayre changed its name to what we know it to be today, Glastonbury Festival.

It has been an event that brought people together and still does so today where you will only find ecstatic smiles, a brilliant atmosphere and amazing acts. People come to the festival thick and thin dressed in wacky costumes and bold face paints to brighten up the crowds.

It is an amazing festival to go to, especially dressed up and we have some great costumes that you will love. There is everything you could ever need in our Festival Costume collection including fantasy costumes, funny costumes, hats, wigs and many other accessories. Why not take a look?
