A COUNCIL waste service has announced it is supporting a popular music festival in Redditch that is set to return next year.

The organisers of GlastonBeoley festival are “wasting” no time in planning for next year’s event thanks to the support of Bromsgrove District Council’s Commercial Waste Service.

The service will be providing waste options for festival goers as well as becoming an official sponsor of the main stage.

Cllr Margaret Sherrey, whose portfolio covers Environmental Services, said: “GlastonBeoley has become a very popular event for people of Bromsgrove and nearby neighbours in Redditch.

“The roots of the Commercial Services Team are forged by the communities we serve as a council, so we are proud to be able to support this charity event again, which does good for local people, as well as helping to make sure that it’s an enjoyable and clean event for all festival goers.

“With our wonderful pink and yellow bins at next year’s festival, you’ll be hard pushed to say you couldn’t find somewhere suitable to put your rubbish!”

Debbie Joynes, from GlastonBeoley, said: “We’re so pleased to have Bromsgrove District Council’s Commercial Waste Team on board again this year with their wonderful community-led approach to their service.

“Everything is starting to fall into place already for next year’s festival. The Bees is booked, the stages are booked, stall holders are signing up, musicians are generously volunteering to play – all we need now is our audience! Don’t miss out on our early bird tickets - if you are stuck for Christmas present ideas for friends or family, look no further!”


GlastonBeoley is an annual music festival which aims to raise money for local charities and community organisations whilst putting on a mix of professional and acts.

Next year’s festival is set to take place on June 18 and June 19.
