CND at Glastonbury

We took our Scrap Trident message to hundreds of thousands of people at Glastonbury again this year. Thank you to everyone who signed our petition, the artists and the CND volunteers who made the 2015 event such a success. Take a look at our video and our photos to see what we got up to this year.

Glastonbury Festival was founded in 1970 by CND-supporter Michael Eavis. Throughout the 1980s the festival was closely linked with CND, helping to raise awareness of nuclear weapons and through donating money from ticket sales to CND.  In 1981 the Pyramid Stage was rebuilt with the CND symbol taking pride of place at the top. Glastonbury Festival became the biggest source of funding for CND, bringing in £100,000 for us at the 1986 festival alone!

The festival is an important part of CND's campaigning calendar, providing a welcoming place for us to speak to hundreds of people. Throughout the years, many musicians and celebrities have supported our campaign, and many have spoken in support from the stages at Glastonbury.
