Glastonbury Festival organisers have pleaded with fans of the event not to visit its Somerset home for some lockdown larks.

Despite COVID-19 lockdown rules prohibiting non-essential travel, the event says that people have been attempting to visit both Worthy Farm and the surrounding farms that make up the site of the festival.

“Worthy Farm and its surrounding farms are private property and, given the current circumstances, the land used by Glastonbury Festival is closed to the public”, says a statement on the Glastonbury website. “Despite this, we have seen increasing numbers of visitors attempting to access the site used by the festival”.

“For the sake of those who continue to work and live on the site, we would ask that you please do not consider visiting”, it continues. “Those who do attempt to access the site will be asked to leave”.

For those still desperate to get a peek of what farm life is like, here is a picture of a cow.
