At the beginning of August a huge stage is erected in the grounds of Glastonbury Abbey for the event which is known as “The Classical Extravaganza”. The inspiration of, and still organised by Michael Eavis, of Glastonbury Festival Fame, it is now is a three night event, with different entertainers each evening. Attended by thousands, who bring sometimes very elaborate picnics, with tables, garden chairs and even silver candelabras, they can relax and listen to such famous musicians as violinist Nigel Kennedy, singer Joss Stone, Jools Holland, or the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
