A popular cafe has made a major announcement at Glastonbury Festival for the first time in 20 years.

Avalon Café, known for being the festival's largest cafe, shared the "sad news" on Tuesday.

In the heartfelt post, the cafe wrote: "Sadly, we will not be running Avalon Café in the Avalon Field this year. 

"After 20 wonderful years of our family serving food and entertainment with love, we were informed that we are no longer part of the plans for the field, this came as a massive shock to us."

Festival-goers will still be able to visit the cafe "in some form", the cafe told fans but they wanted to tell their "loyal customers" that they wouldn't be greeting them in the field this time around. 

Fans raced to the comments to express their love and sadness about the news. 

Paired with a red heart, one customer wrote: "Gutted! One of my favourite places to visit. Best wishes in your future endeavours."

Another user added: "What a terrible shame - I’ve enjoyed some very good music in there over the years."

A third person posted: "Totally utterly awful and so sad for you all. I have amazing memories from Avalon Cafe and it’s always been a place for fun, frolics and festivities. A loss to the festival."

While a fourth added: "Shame. Has definitely been one of my favourite places over the years and have watched it grow and grow in size!"

The cafe went on to thank "all of the amazing bands that have played over the years" as well as the "customers who have eaten mountains of food and drank oceans of coffee" with them.

Avalon Café concluded its statement by expressing the love it has had for being part of Glastonbury, apologising for not being able to gather with fans and wishing everyone a "wonderful festival".
