A couple of questions, please:

1. How does one get there from Heathrow? [I have never been to your island, so know bugger all about internal travel...and "The Trip" didn't help very much.]

2. Is there cheap accommodation in the vicinity of this place...a henge I could pitch a tent beside...a bridge I could unroll a swag beneath?

3. What lens should I install on my camera?

4. Who are these strange folk, who seem to be smiling at you in the manner of the spider smiling at the fly that just got trapped in her web?
Chris: If you are serious about coming I'm sure between the lot of us here in the UK we can arrange to collect you from Heathrow, put you up for zilch and take you to the meet-up. All it takes is for you to get here.

These people are normal citizens of Glastonbury who posed for my lens only last week

What fun that meet-up is going to be, I wish I could be there that is for sure
Chris: A pity you can't be Robbyne
This is just an awesome shot - I mean... what happiness there is here!

See you in May! Can't wait!
Chris: I'd be delighted to introduce you to Glastonbury Elizabeth: if you have an ounce of spirituality in you - and I'm sure you have just that - you'd love it

Coming with all our bells and whistles, Chris...as you know! It'll be here before we know it. Will YOU be our Green Man???
Chris: I will certainly be just that thing Ginnie

Ray just should close his eyes, get his passport and come....
Chris: Pleaase read my reply to Ray Astrid
It promises to be the biggest and best ever!
Chris: Agreed - please look at my reply to R Storey

We are surely in Glastonbury? An attractive, bearded Green Man, but where are the plants growing out of his mouth? Like Ray I have a couple of questions - and answers!
Chris: This of course is Glastonbury Philine, taken only last week. Any questions you have will be answered

Scary wellness person!!!

I see he is warming his bum on an environmentally friendly solar panel - perhaps he should put some proper clothes on.

Tonbridge Wells.
Chris: Indeed - persons such as this have lost the comfort that only the collar & tie can provide
Love the photo, hope Lisl gets to see it.

Would have loved to have come but will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary on that day with friends & family. Sadly the 2 witnesses at our wedding can't join us as they will be at your reunion instead! If you all get the chance, raise a glass to absent friends. Hope you have a wonderful time.
Chris: We will do our best Pauline, thank you
Love the T-shirt! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone smile
Chris: Wonderful isn't it Martin. I obviously look forward to seeing you too.
I love that tshirt. Was thinking of going but find my passport has expired. Am in a scramble to get a new one. Picked up the wrong form last week.
Chris: Oh dear..

I am very keen on Celtic design as in the lettering on the wall hanging Tiff.
Chris: I am obliged to you Chad

I would implore Mr Ray to visit our little sod of turf.

Love to come but I have tickets to visit Italy 21/4/14
Chris: Never mind, next time
I wonder if this uniform is mandatory for the meeting -I'm not sure if we keep my Flower-Era tops in any closet, Chris…I'll try my best!
Chris: You can only come if you dress as a hippy JC..

So if these are normal people of Glastonbury what do the others look like?

I'm all sorted for the 11th; I'm staying near Kidderminster (Hagley) on the Saturday night on way back south from the sun-blessed fells of the Lake District. I may even do a trip on the Severn Valley Railway Saturday afternoon.
Chris: Ye gods - you know how to live the high life!
I am still hoping to make it Chris! logistics wise, its quite awkward coming from Kent!
Chris: I know it's not brilliant for everyone Ronke but we felt the Midlands gives everybody a chance..

Count me in!
Chris: Brilliant - bring Penny please!!
Nice shot of these two very cheerful citizens of Glastonbury, Chris.

I could have attended the meet-up if only it had been scheduled for the following week, Chris. Unfortunately, commitments here in Montreal make it impossible for me to leave until after the 12th. So disappointed; it sounds as if you will have a very large turnout along with much merriment and good times, I'm sure.
Chris: Such a pity Bev but be assured we will do this again somewhere down the line
Great colors and smiles... wish I could make that meet-up. sad
Chris: I'm so sorry you can't Larry
12 noon noted, mind you we will only be 10 minutes away in a hotel for the weekend, which coincidently it turns out is only 10 minutes from where the Blackpool and Canadian contingents are staying. Great to hear that Peter and Penny are coming over. Not sure if I go for this guys shorts.
Chris: What about his green man top Brian?
An old hippie will always let you down smile
Chris: Some things in life are certainties John..

It is already noted in my diary, I will be interloping again ;-)

No excuse for me, Cosford is right on my doorstep.
Chris: I look forward to seeing you again CherryPie

Hoping to be there Chris
Chris: Well I hope you will be Anne, when we scheduled the occasion I was thinking of our friends in the north

I'm convinced that I will be there unless 'her indoors ' says I have to do as I'm told and be at the grandchild's second birthday celebration on one of two possible weekends about that time.

I'm glad my pyjamas aren't like those of that bloke.
Chris: If you don't make it you will break certain female members' hearts..
Love the T-shirt!
Chris: I'll buy you one
Hope to see you on the 11th - according to Google it's only about a couple of hours drive, so I don't even need to get up early smile
Chris: I look forward indeed to meeting you Tom
Straight into the diary look forward to meeting up again.
He looks a very happy Hippy
Chris: This is Glastonbury Martin - another planet. Looking forward to seeing you again
We will be seeing you all there Chris... Penny and ....petersmile
Chris: Excellent Penny & Peter!
