Don’t miss a once-in-a-lifetime chance to win a tour around the Glastonbury Festival site with none other than its founder driving his famous Land Rover!
Age UK is hosting its Birthday Ball in East Brent on Saturday, November 10 and is encouraging people to purchase a ticket for its grand charity ball.
Those who purchase a ticket to the Birthday Ball, will then be entered into a lottery to win a tour around Worthy Farm with the legendary Michael Eavis in his Land Rover (at a time to be agreed when the Festival is not running, of course).
The ball will be held at Rookery Manor, in Edingworth Road, and will celebrate the charity’s 70th birthday.
The Blue Others, a 14-piece band, will entertain the crowd who will sit for a three-course meal, a casino, auction and raffle as well as the main prize.
About the Birthday Ball
Age UK described the event: “The event is being held to raise money to enable them to reach more local older people in need and provide vital help to enable them to enjoy later life.
“Attendees to the Ball will be greeted with a welcome drink before enjoying a three-course dinner followed by live music from The Blues Others, a fun Casino, an auction with some great lots to bid on, a raffle and some surprises through the evening.
“Coach transport is being offered from Taunton, Bridgwater and Weston-super-Mare.

What is Age UK?
The charity says: “Age UK Somerset is an independent charity who has to raise all its own funds.
“For 70 years, Age UK Somerset has been giving a helping hand when it has been needed.
“These days it provides services such as befriending to reduce loneliness, exercise sessions to help people stay healthy, and benefit claims support and other services to ensure that older people can stay independent.
“Nearly 400 Volunteers play a vital role within the charity helping to provide this support, but with cuts to services, isolation due to lack of transport in rural areas, and an ageing population, services which are already very popular are going to be more and more in demand.
Buying tickets to Age UK’s Birthday Ball is a fantastic way to support the charity while also having a great time.
