Glastonbury marks 40th anniversary with limited-edition scrapbook

120-page booklet also features rare material from the Eavis family

Glastonbury festival organisers have launched a special scrapbook to commemorate the bash’s 40th anniversary, which took place at the weekend (June 25-27).

The limited-edition 120-page booklet features exclusive material from the personal archives of the Eavis family, from tickets and posters to pictures and personal messages tracing the event from its beginnings in 1970 through to this year’s three-day bash.

The scrapbook also features full colour and hand-written captions by Michael and Emily Eavis.

Two-thirds of the proceeds will go to Oxfam‘s aid effort in Haiti. The book was available on site at the festival, but is now for sale online at Oxfam.
