The Grown-Up Way To Do Glastonbury

With another summer of festivals ahead - and a slew of your favourite acts headlining – why should you avoid buying tickets because you’d rather not ruin your Oliver Spencer Supergas?

After initially selling Bell Tents in 2006, festival demand increased to the point that in 2009 Glastonbury approached them to provide a premium area for festival goers, hence Hotel Bell Tent was launched. This year they are providing Glastonbury with an area of over 500 tents for those who want a more comfortable and high-end experience. That means rugs, doormats, hand-painted furniture, mattresses with Egyptian Cotton bedding and thick duvets.

The tents can be hired privately too, for personal events and parties, because luxury needn’t stop when the festival does.
