With the iconic festival cancelled for a second year running, Colman’s has created a taste of the festival with a limited-edition ‘Glastonbelly’ food box. Each package is filled with produce from local food suppliers and on-site vendors, all paired with Colman’s signature condiments. Priced at £30 and delivered nationwide, 100% of the proceeds will be going back to the businesses who’ve missed out on another year of work at Worthy Farm. From Proper pies, which pair deliciously with a dollop of Colman’s Original Mustard, to Greens of Glastonbury cheddar, each dish is designed to be washed down with a sip of Glastonbury Brewing Co’s refreshing Magog cider or Zen ale.
