Excerpt:

“I’d never heard of Strummerville until they set up camp near the memorial stone last year. Founded by friends and family, shortly after Joe’s death, Strummerville is a registered charity, dedicated to creating new opportunities for aspiring musicians. They set up camp at the festival and build a huge fire which they keep burning for the full five days.

Joe was infamous for his campfires at Glastonbury and it’s rumoured that he once kept one alight throughout a terrible storm, refusing to submit to the fierce wind and rain. Not only is this the perfect tribute to Joe, but the heart and soul of the festival. When that fire eventually goes out, it’s all over ’til next year.”

Sponsor Zoe: Greenwich to Glastonbury Festival, 150 Mile bike ride

zoe-roberstonWe are very pleased to announce Zoe Robertson will be doing a bike ride to Glastonbury Festival to raise funds for Strummerville. We asked Zoe why she decided to do this, “I like Strummerville and think it serves an important service that not enough people know about.”

The sponsored bike ride will last 3 days and a total of 150 miles, to assist with accommodation Zoe will be couch surfing (via couch surfing.com), the mileage has been calculated using Google Maps and will be taking cycle routes from Greenwich all the way to Glastonbury Festival camp site.

Zoe said, “I’m just testing out my limits for distances in a day and may decide to try to do it in two days. For now, though, the plan is to take 3 days, see some lovely folk, and enjoy the scenery.”

The planned route is:

  • Greenwich to Reading on Sunday, June 20 (49 miles)
  • Reading to Corsham on Monday June 21 (60 miles)
  • Corsham to Glastonbury on Tues June 22 (39 miles)
  • Arrive at Glastonbury site on Wednesday June 23 late morning early afternoon.

We have set up a sponsor button (via PayPal) where you can sponsor Zoe.


We would like to thank Zoe and wish her the best of luck!

Loads of love,

About Zoe Robertson
Zoe plays violin and is a graduate of Trinity Music College with a Bachelor of Music and came across Strummerville via the band, Handshake. Zoe said, “I have to admit, I didn’t really know much about Joe Strummer before joining Handshake and finding out about their connection with Strummerville. Since then, though, I’ve developed a real soft spot for all things Joe.”
