There will be four themes within the Fact or Fiction; Dreams, Invention and Discovery, The Twilight and last but not least The Future. The theme and how people interpret it, is what makes the festival so unique and one of Cambridgeshire’s best kept secrets.

There is a great range of things to do as well as enjoying the music including; the action camps where anything and everything happens from danceoffs, snail racing, a makeover tent (face painting, fancy dress and styling) and so much more.  There are also art boats and theatre and performance productions as well as games and spectacles.

 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?

They then think it was Andy’s choice to throw them away – which leads them on yet another journey that ends up with a rather special ending!

With the film scheduled for release on the 18th, cinemas around the country will be holding screenings throughout the evening and they’re likely to be packed with fans eager to join in the next adventure, many of whom will have kitted themselves out with fancy dress to show the love.
