Michael Eavis given the Freedom of Glastonbury


May 4, 2022

Last night, Michael Eavis was honoured with the Freedom of Glastonbury, having been nominated by the Mayor of Glastonbury, Councillor Jon Cousins, and deputy mayor, Councillor Serena Roney-Dougal, in appreciation of his services to the town and the local economy. Michael was formally made a Freeman of Glastonbury at the ceremony at Glastonbury Town Hall.

In the past, a Freeman held various privileges, but these days the award is mostly symbolic – however, according to tradition, as a Freeman of Glastonbury Michael has now been conferred the right to run his sheep through the centre of the town.
