This week George sits down with Emily Eavis, co-organiser of the world famous Glastonbury Festival. She grew up on Worthy Farm, where the Festival takes place each year, and from her teenage years onwards has played a vital role in every part of the organisation, booking artists across the main stages, coordinating the many different areas and making the magic happen for nearly 200,000 people on site, as well as millions watching live on the BBC. Passionately committed to Glastonbury’s charity partners, Oxfam, Greenpeace and WaterAid, Emily has visited projects in Haiti, Mozambique, South Africa and Japan.
