Renowned artist, Peter Blake, has joined forces with us for this year’s Glastonbury Festival

Best-known for his design for the Beatles’ ‘Sgt Pepper’ album cover, Peter Blake has created a unique artwork around the theme of the iconic Glastonbury Tor.

The design shows the 15th century St Michael’s Tower at the summit of the Tor, surrounded by butterflies. Michael Eavis, founder of the Glastonbury Festival, and his daughter Emily have also been incorporated into the design, along with St Michael himself.

The design will appear on a series of limited edition T shirts, which will be given away at our Glastonbury Festival stand, Outside Inn, and through the our’s social networking sites across the festival duration.

Peter Blake has also created a signed butterfly ‘tattoo’ which will be available as ‘body art’ or as a stamp on programmes or clothing for all festival goers. The butterfly motif was chosen to celebrate the special importance of butterflies to the Glastonbury area, and midsummer as a perfect time to see them.

Peter Blake said: “The combination of the Tor, the local butterfly and the festival really fired my imagination.”

Our work with Peter Blake is among the exciting initiatives in a new programme to commission and promote contemporary art and craft across its historic properties, countryside and coastline.

For exclusive on-site updates and festival competitions, follow us at and, or make your way to the bar in the National Trust’s stand, Outside Inn at Glastonbury Festival, near the Bandstand and Cider Bus. You can also see the pictures taken onsite on our Flickr pages
