“Glastonbury is my happy place” – Kerry Mercer

I was lucky enough to be born in Pilton and so grew up in the small village and have been to every festival since 1979. My parents were at the first one where T. Rex played on the back of a hay wagon.

The late ’80s / early ’90s were the memorable years for me, especially 1990 when I remember The Cure having to stop to allow a rescue helicopter to land in the middle of the crowd to pick up someone who had a heart attack. I also took my own kids from when they were babies and spent many a happy time in the Kids Field watching Bodger and Badger.

To me, Glastonbury is my happy place sharing good times, love, laughter and making memories with my family and friends. I also have to mention my favourite drinking spot… The Cider Bus : )
