This time next week, the roads around Wells, Glastonbury and Shepton Mallet will be crammed with visitors from all over the country heading to the WORLD FAMOUS ‘Glastonbury Festival’, for a weekend of fun and amazing musical entertainment from some of the biggest names in the music industry, including The Foo Fighters, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran and Radiohead just to name a few.
The biggest question people will be asking this close to the event is what is the weather going to do? Recent years have seen the festival being hit by days of rain, leading to flooded tents, muddy, boggy ground and of course the need for Wellies and waterproofs.
We’re sorry to say this, but as a company, we always have our fingers crossed for rain when it comes to Glastonbury, in the hope that many of the visitors passing our doors in Wells will stop by and stock up with boots and waterproof trousers and jackets. Unfortunately for us, looking at the long range weather forecast for next week and the Festival weekend, the weather is looking really good and the need for the usual Wellington boots looks unlikely.
However, in the words of The Boy Scouts, ‘BE PREPARED’! The weather is never a sure thing and things may change, so don’t leave it until you are onsite, where you will get stung by overpricing. Visit our Wells or Congresbury store before heading to Glastonbury and get yourself a pair of Wellies just in case. We have boots for all budgets, from basic Dunlop’s at £12.99 to a pair of Le Chameau’s, if you really want to look the part. With Wells’ largest range of boots to choose from and with plenty of stock at the moment and the bonus of on site parking, there is no better place to visit to purchase your boots.
We hope everyone visiting the Glastonbury Festival, locally and those of you visiting our wonderful county of Somerset, have an amazing weekend of music and sun or RAIN! Fingers Crossed ;-).
