The Co-op is to build a dedicated convenience store serving 175,000 Glastonbury festival-goers after agreeing on terms to an exclusive partnership for the 2019 event.

Located in the adjacent village of Pilton, the store will offer a range of camper creature comforts in the form of water, bacon, and bread as well as sun cream and ponchos to protect from the vagaries of the weather.

Amanda Jennings, Co-op director of marketing, said: “Glastonbury is the ultimate live music festival and we can’t wait to welcome existing and new customers, young and old to our pop-up shop.

“Music festivals create a happy, weekend community which we are perfectly placed to serve, getting closer to customers with our unique convenience offer, providing high quality and value for money essential items to help festival-goers make the most of their Glastonbury experience.”

A planning application has already been filed for the new venture, which will remain in use as a community facility once the music stops.

Past Glastonbury partners include the Royal National Institute of Blind People which encouraged attendees to book eye tests.
