    I missed out on tickets for Glastonbury this year but would still really like to volunteer in some way and I know litter picking is one of them...

    I was just wondering if anyone here has ever done this alone? Or volunteered alone? As none of my friends have really expressed an interest in coming along but I don't want to miss out. At the same time I don't want to spend the whole time feeling lonely.

    I know volunteers have a separate camping area so I wouldn't be alone there, I just don't want to spend the whole time by myself.

    Thanks

    I know a bunch of people who volunteer there as stewards (I'm local to the festival site), and they usually volunteer alone and then make friends there.

    I bet you will make friends with other volunteers whilst working. You won't be the only diehard who missed tickets!

    Volunteer with Oxfam, and yes, you'll easily make friends with people.

    I've never volunteered at Glasto, but have volunteered alone at other festivals (Reading and Latitude) and plenty of people volunteer alone. Some because they couldn't talk their friends into coming, some because they're travelling around, some because they want to do as many festivals as possible and working is the easiest way of doing that. It's got a great community spirit since the same people work the same festivals every year. It may seem a bit clique-y at first, but make an effort to be sociable and you'll be fine. If you see a large group of staff sitting around usually it means they'll happily accept new people.

    Litter Picking is probably a better option than Oxfam though. From what I've heard for Glasto Oxfam preferentially picks people who have volunteered with them at other festivals, and then uses new applicants to top up the numbers if they need to. So you probably have a better chance with the Litter picking if you're new to it.

    I going to try this this year! My cousin has paid to go so I wouldn't be alone the whole time, but I'm sure there's plenty of people who do it alone... That's what I'm hoping anyway.
