Glastonbury is a fascinating place and since time immemorial, people have journeyed here to experience this rich place of legend, romance, myth and history. A centre of pilgrimage for millennia, Glastonbury has a strange and powerful 'pull' that today draws people from many different walks and paths of life, from all over the world.
This small market/pilgrimage town in the south-west of England sits beneath the intriguing Glastonbury Tor. Its potpourri of independent shops and organisations on a bustling High Street abounds with diversity. Glastonbury of the 21st century has emerged as a place that integrates many paths and beliefs and this is reflected in the wide and varied cultural experiences, activities and colourful personalities that can be found in this vibrant, captivating place.
"The sense of unity & tolerance in the diversity is palpable when you talk to people in the town. This unique approach is an inspiration to the world."
Sarah Brett - Melbourne, Australia
"In these changing times, I've recently felt that there must be a better way forward that leads away from a disjointed & separated society where everything is about the individual and not the community.
My visit to Glastonbury has shown me that
it is already on the way towards that aim!
Stephanie Nash - Florida, USA
"Building bridges between diverse beliefs is essential if we want to live in a community that has great social cohesion. It doesn’t have to mean we have to all become one homogenised blob of humanity, but it CAN mean that we can respect each other, even if we don’t agree. We can also take our acceptance one step further, by proactively encouraging and supporting people of good heart and intention on their own path through life. We know only too well that there is widespread agreement that bridge building can be successful in reducing prejudice and hostility between different groups and in helping people to live peacefully alongside each other."
