Temporary access supplier Eve has returned to Glastonbury ahead of this year’s festival to install the perimeter fence and internal infrastructure.

Appointed by Eve, crewing firm Gallowglass will construct the 16 metre fencing that secures the 1,380 acre site. Work has begun on the high Super Fortress fence, which Gallowglass expects to build in 24 days with a 14-strong crew.

“The build is always a huge challenge, as the Somerset weather is notoriously changeable,” said Gallowglass’ MD Jonathan Sigsworth. “Last year we had high winds and rains to contend with, in addition to the steep, off-camber, undulating ground of Glastonbury’s Pennard Hill – but we’re well practiced now.”

De-rig on the fence will start after the festival finishes on 29 June.
