Creativity Works: Festivals - Trip to Glastonbury

40 young east Londoners were invited on a behind the scenes tour of Glastonbury Festival as part of a 10 week employability programme. The trip included a masterclass with founder Michael Eavis to gain a once in a lifetime insight into one of the biggest and best festivals in the world. Creativity Works: Festivals is a Mayor’s Fund for London project supported by The Berkeley Foundation. The programme is delivered in partnership with Create and A New Direction.
