Glaston-Bury was originally the brain-child of one man, Chris Buckley and without his incredible vision and drive, the idea would not have become a reality and taken on the incredible life that it now has, nor could it continue without the Glaston-Bury committee, a multitude of dedicated volunteers, helpers, donors and sponsors, the generosity of the venues and of course, all the bands and musicians who give up their time and talent, free of charge to take part in this absolutely glorious fundraiser.
Bury Hospice has been, and continues to be, the extremely fortunate recipient of all this hard work and effort. The aim of Glaston-Bury, from its beginnings when there was one just venue and ten bands, was that it would become a popular annual event, extending to many more pubs and clubs in the Bury area. We can safely say that Glaston-Bury has put itself, its town and the charity it raises money for, well and truly on the map; we are proud to be associated with it and extremely grateful that we benefit from it. This is the kind of fundraising event that many charities can only dream of and we are so very grateful for the continued support of everyone involved.
Taking place on August Bank Holiday Monday, this year’s event features fifteen venues, four outdoor stages with 140 bands and musicians giving up their time and talent for free. Music-lovers and fun-seekers will really enjoy Glaston-Bury 2018, as there are so many different genres of music and a fabulous, festival feel to the entire day.

If you fancy helping out and are willing to do a three hour shift checking wristbands and collecting donations at venue doors, you’ll be rewarded with a free wristband to enjoy the rest of the event afterwards. Volunteers are also entitled to a free pizza and the warmest of welcomes at Pizza Pioneer – great supporters of GB for many years.
