Quite simply the biggest, oldest and most iconic of all festivals, Glastonbury in full-swing is temporarily the 3rd largest city in the South West. As with any city there are distinct areas, all with their own unique identity and style, and there's literally something there for everyone. Whether you meticulously plan your time off around acts you have to see, or choose to wander around plan-free discovering things as you go, you will finish the week agreeing that there's no other festival experience quite like it.
Oxfam stewarding started with Glastonbury in 1993 and 21 years later we are a crucial part of the infrastructure, with more well over 2000 volunteers on site. The majority of our roles are on pedestrian and vehicle entrances to the festival, ensuring festival access runs smoothly and safely.

Are shuttle buses provided?
Oxfam will be running buses for stewards on Monday 23rd June and Tuesday 24th June from Bristol Temple Meads train station to the site, and back on the evening of Sunday 29th June and the morning of Monday 30th June. You can book a space on these during your application form and the bus ticket will cost £20, which covers you for both the inbound and outbound journeys whether you decide to use them both or not. This amount will be deducted from your stewarding deposit.

Please note, Oxfam only provide buses to site on Monday and Tuesday, so if you're  offered a place on the Glastonbury pre-festival Shifts, you will need to make your own travel arrangements.

Please also note that the shuttle buses back to Temple Meads after the festival may be subject to traffic delays so please book your onward travel accordingly.

Is car parking available?
Yes, if you request a parking pass during your application ahead of the cancellation deadline.
