A SOMERSET couple who met at the Glastonbury Festival - and got engaged under the famous Pyramid Stage - were among fans coping with their second consecutive year without the festival by recreating the famous site in their own homes this weekend.

Fans took to social media to share their “Glasthomebury” decorations over the weekend the event was due to take place before coronavirus got in the way for a second year in a row.

Among them were festival fanatics Felicity Cooney and Freddy Bevan, from South Somerset, who met at the festival and even travelled to get engaged under the site’s famous pyramid after it was called off last year.

Ms Cooney told the PA news agency: “The wedding is in May next year and I’m sure you can guess it’s Glastonbury themed.

“We were actually trying to work out last night how we could incorporate our Pyramid Stage into the reception.

“We’re all Glastonbury veterans and live close to the site. I’ve been going since I was a baby so when Covid cancelled Glastonbury we couldn’t bear the thought of not celebrating the weekend. Especially without watching some music on the Pyramid Stage.”

Ms Cooney said her brother-in-law had surprised them by building a model of the famous main stage in their back garden.

“We’ve tried to re-create our Glastonbury experience by spending the entire weekend in the garden outside watching our favourite footage come rain or shine on our home-made Pyramid Stage,” she said.

“Our dream now is to get back to Worthy Farm next year to celebrate our honeymoon.”
