As we enter what should have been the week of Glastonbury, one family in Worcestershire have come up with an ingenuous solution to the no-festival blues.
Fiona Rees, 50, her husband Matt, 43, and their son Dylan, 11, are all huge fans of the world-famous festival, which would have welcomed more than 200,000 music lovers to Worthy Farm over the coming days.
While they were understandably upset when it was cancelled, they have enlisted the help of Colin Stent - Fiona's 67-year-old father - to build their own festival, complete with the Pyramid Stage, a bar, and a camping area. The family, who have described Glastonbury as "magical", are now just one visit from Taylor Swift away from that full fest experience.
