5 lovely drinks from Glastonbury 2016

Posted on 18th Jul 2016 by Henry Chevallier Guild in Henry's Travels


When conditions become adverse, when the going gets tough, when the mud of Worthy Farm rises up and threatens to become the dominant factor of your festival, it is necessary to stop and breathe, to take stock of the situation and do so whilst taking on board some sustenance.
