We’re very pleased to launch the Glastonbury 2021 Crew Solidarity T-shirt, designed by Stanley Donwood, which is available to order now from our online shop, along with a kids crew T-shirt and baby vest.
All profits from the sale of this range will be shared between the live events crew charity Stagehand and Somerset Community Foundation, who will direct the funds to local causes who have missed out on funding as a result of the Festival not taking place, with an emphasis on those which provide vital services in the community.
Stagehand is the live production welfare and benevolent fund, founded by Production Services Association members and operating since 1998. Stagehand has recently been raising funds for the technical production crew who have been hardest hit by the pandemic, with the simple aim of helping to keep roofs over heads and food on tables. technical production crew can apply to Stagehand’s COVID-19 crew relief fund here.
Somerset Community Foundation is a charity that helps passionate people in Somerset change the world on their doorstep. They aim to build stronger communities in Somerset where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. Since the charity was founded in 2002, they have awarded more than £15 million in funding, changing thousands of lives across Somerset.
