PUBLISHED: 18:00 23 June 2017
Glastonbury Festival came to a pre-school in March on Friday, complete with a mud field, live music stages, campfire, face-painting, photo booth, paddling pool and even a pet enclosure.
More than 100 children at Maple Grove pre-school spent the day singing, dancing, painting, posing for pictures, getting temporary tattoos and everything inbetween - after getting their wristbands for the festival of course.
Despite only deciding to host their own Glasto last Friday, over 20 staff pulled together and called in favours to make it a memorable event.
Tina Bidwell, group manager, said: “Within a week everyone embraced it. We found a lot of our ideas by scrolling through the internet.
“It’s something very different and British - and the children will have learnt so much from it. It has been an awesome day; the staff have worked really hard to make this happen.
“It’s been so successful that we’ll definitely put another one on next year.”
One of the children said it was the “best day of my life”.
