We are very much looking forward to Michael Eavis joining our panel of judges for this year's Art Open. Michael Eavis is an English dairy farmer, and is best known as the creator of Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts, which takes place on his farm in Pilton, Somerset. It all began in the late sixties; after a casual visit to the Bath Blues festival with his girlfriend Jean, Michael decided to have a go himself in 1970. The Festival did not make a profit for several years, but when it did, Michael began to look for good causes to support both locally and internationally. Nowadays, the Festival aims to raise two million pounds each Festival year in aid of Greenpeace, Oxfam and WaterAid, as well as hundreds of local causes. Within the local area, social housing is Michael’s top priority.

We’re delighted to announce that lifelong Methodist and founder of the world-renowned @glastofest, Michael Eavis has become the first Patron of the New Room.

To mark the occasion Revd A. Ward Jones, Chair of the New Room Trustees, presented Michael with a copy of ‘The Cradle of Methodism – A History of the New Room’ written by Gary Best, Historical Consultant at the New Room.

The son of a Methodist preacher, Michael was born in Pilton, Somerset, and grew up on Worthy Farm - now famous as the setting for Glastonbury Festival. Michael has been involved with many projects that have benefitted charities and local causes, including the restoration of the Tithe Barn in Pilton.

Following the completion of the Horsefair Project last year, Michael was welcomed to the New Room by our local trustees for a tour of our new facilities (state-of-the-art museum, library and archive facilities and award-winning café). The trustees welcome Michael to his new role and thank him for his commitment to the ongoing work and ministry of the New Room.

The early 14th century Tithe Barn at Pilton. What a treasure. Restored by the wonderful Michael Eavis in 1995, with McCurdy & Co (of Globe theatre fame). Every curved beam (or cruck) chosen from a suitable tree. 3 miles of hand made clay tiles on the roof. #tithebarn #pilton #glastonburyfestival #michaeleavis #mccurdyandco #cruckbarn #claytilesroof #loveatithebarn

Big Door on the South side of Pilton Tithe Barn complète with cart tracks in the ancient floor. Imagining the villagers bringing in ten percent of their produce #tithebarn #mccurdyandco #cruckframe #greenoak #restoration #glastonburyfestival #michaeleavis

The brilliant Rodney Branigan @rodneybranigan steps in to replace Paloma Faith at the Glastonbury Extravaganza 2018 #thepiltonstage #michaeleavis #festival #glastonburyfestival #livemusicvenue #piltonparty #glasto #livemusic #extravaganza2018 #glastonburyextravaganza

‘The man made good’

Telling thousands of Paloma Faith fans that she was unwell and unable to perform at The Glastonbury Extravaganza, was not an easy task. Michael Eavis delivered the news with warmth and sincerity. Then he turned the night around...he is a legend ⭐️ #glastonburyabbey #glastonburyextravaganza #glastonburyextravaganza2018 #michaeleavis #cbe #festivalphotography #pilton #palomafaith #somersetlife #glastonburyabbeyruins #glastofest #musicalevening #music #igmyshot #somerset #livemusic #musicgig #catchthemoment #shared_colored_moments #globe_travel_ #performanceart #global_portraits #legend #pilton #nikonphotography #somersetcountygazette @MichaelEavis1
