Yes, you read that right - married. At Glastonbury.

A couple who met at Plymouth University tied the knot in front of guests and excited festival-goers.

Jack and Sarah Watney, who now live together in Glastonbury, got engaged at the festival in 2017 and celebrated their special day back at their favourite place.

You can watch the moment the couple were married below:

On Thursday (27 June) hundreds of environmental activists went on a procession around the site demanding action on climate change.

They met at the Park Stage and listened to passionate speeches from Extinction Rebellion and Greenpeace campaigners, who said urgent action was needed to “avoid a climate catastrophe”.

They then marched to Glastonbury’s Stone Circle where they created what they claimed was the largest ever human hourglass, the familiar symbol of the Extinction Rebellion group.

Thousands of people gathered at Glastonbury’s West Holts stage on Thursday to watch England as they secured a place in the final four of the Women’s World Cup.

Crowds cheered as the team beat Norway 3-0, which proved a spectacular end to a day of scorching sunshine on Worthy Farm.

The match was screened at the festival after Lionesses player Georgia Stanway tweeted organisers asking them to show the game for her attending brother.

Organisers were quick to respond and it became the first ever women’s World Cup game to be shown at the festival.
