MUSIC, tents and wellies will be making an appearance at a village pub as regulars get in the Glastonbury spirit this weekend.

Hopefully, the only thing missing during the “Glastonbury Party” at The Village Inn, in Easington Village, tomorrow will be the mud.

Pub bosses are laying on a host of activities to coincide with a slightly larger party going on at festival stalwart Michael Eavis’s famous Worthy Farm venue, in Somerset, which runs from today until Sunday and attracts up to 140,000 people.

The local event kicks off at 4pm and party-goers are even planning to camp out in tents outside the pub overnight ahead of the fun.

There will be a barbecue, face-painting, disco, games, and as well as streaming live performances from Glastonbury on the pub’s large TV screens, a DJ will be playing hits from the festival bands.

The event will raise money for Armed Forces Day which takes place tomorrow.

Pub landlady Gail Pallister said: “It is a wristband-only family event, with proceeds going to Armed Forces Day, which happens to be the same day.

l An Armed Forces Day was held in Peterlee on Monday and residents in Hartlepool are being reminded that the town’s commemorations will take place tomorrow around Hartlepool’s Maritime Experience, starting at 10.50am at HMS Trincomalee.
