Rain doesn’t dampen spirits at the Gladstonbury festival
Hundreds flocked to the annual celebration in Gladstone Park
Move over Glastonbury – hundreds of residents donned their wellies and enjoyed some great new bands at the Gladstonbury festival.
The rain didn’t dampen spirits at the annual festival in Gladstone Park, Dollis Hill – which celebrated its tenth anniversary this year.
Two music stages kept the crowds entertained, while those in search of a little retail therapy had plenty of options with stalls selling books, clothes and jewellery.
Tereza Phillips, 17, booked bands on the new talents stage.

“During the day it picked up quite a lot and we had quite a big crowd – even bigger than the main stage for parts of it.
“The bands loved it. They have all been contacting me to say how great it was.”
Tereza was asked to put on the emerging talent stage after the Gladstonbury team spotter her organisational talent at a Royal Wedding party at her tennis club.
“It was a lot of work but really good fun”, Tereza added.
In honour of Fathers Day, which coincided with this year’s festival, organisers also laid on family focused activities.
And many community groups including Brent Friends of the Earth and the Brent Save Our Six libraries campaign, had stalls.
