Womble speaks of "fun" Glastonbury Festival prospect

The founder of the Wombles band Mike Batt has spoken of his excitement at playing in this year's Glastonbury Festival.

Many of those heading to the Somerset venue with their camping equipment next week may be keen to see what the fuss is about after the inclusion of the 1970s band was described as "a mistake" by festival organiser Michael Eavis.

But in an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Mr Batt said he was pleased the group is re-forming for a gig at the famous musical event.

The 62-year-old producer and songwriter - whose other hits include penning the Art Garfunkel song Bright Eyes - had previously referred to his Womble past as "a furry anvil around my neck" as people had pigeonholed him for it.

However, he confessed: "I kind of miss the fun … there is a certain amount of the Wombles in me."

With the festival fast approaching, many people will be making last minute preparations and organisers have revealed plans to go green this week through the provision of 100,000 free rolls of toilet paper made from recycled material.
