Martin has been performing in the Basil Brush Show as ‘Mr Martin’ Basil’s trusted sidekick for 4 years while travelling all over the UK performing at Holiday parks, shopping centres and festivals including four days at Glastonbury in the prestigious Kidz Field in 2017 & 2019.
Some would say Basil is the first act to be confirmed/self-confirmed for the 2021 edition of Glastonbury, as well as being one of the earliest confirmations known for a Glasto line-up, ever.
The 2020 instalment of the Worthy Farm-held event – set to be headlined by Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar and Taylor Swift – was cancelled in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The news of the cancellation was followed by a joint announcement from Glastonbury Festival and the BBC informing fans a celebratory run of programming across the Glasto-weekend is to be expected instead.
