A DAD has praised the community spirit at Glastonbury Festival after he went with his five-year-old daughter and six-week-old son.

Chris Dewsbury, 41, attended the Worthy Farm festival with his partner Becky, 27, and their children Delilah and Preston.

Mr Dewsbury, who worked at the event with Festival Medical Services, was surprised at how trouble-free their experience was thanks to his fellow festival-goers and the facilities in place for families, such as the Kidzfield area.

“It was much easier than we thought,” said Mr Dewsbury, who lives in Leicestershire.

“Kidzfield is really well equipped, and we saw a few babies there.

“Everyone kept coming over and saying, ‘oh my god, he’s tiny’.

“Some people said, ‘you must be mad – have you managed to have a good time?’ But we did.

“Obviously we weren’t partying like we would have been if we were on our own, but we still got out and saw loads of bands.

“We saw some of the headline acts and pushed him (Preston) around in a big buggy with lights all over it.”

He added: “Everyone was really helpful. When we were walking around, people told others to mind out for the pushchair.

“It wasn’t as rock-and-roll as the ones we’ve had previously with two kids in tow, but we still had a great time. It was just slightly different, that was all.

“We’re going again next year!”

The family stayed in a van in a campsite reserved for the festival's medical team, which helped them look after their children and get some much-needed sleep.

“They’ve got really good facilities: toilets, hot showers, catering tents,” said Mr Dewsbury.

“I’ve worked for Festival Medical Services for a few years now, and they’ve got a really good set-up.”

Preston was not the only baby spotted at Glastonbury: a 10-week-old stole the show as DJ Annie Mac opened the Other Stage on Friday, June 28.

Baby Finlay was met with cheers as he appeared on the big screen several times when the Irish DJ opened the stage with an hour of dance hits.

“Oh my god, this baby, what a little legend,” Mac said.

She signed off her performance by thanking “everyone, Glastonbury and this baby”.

Finlay’s mother Rosie Lewis, 35, said the video will probably be played at his wedding and 18th and 21st birthdays in years to come.
