As we enter the final day of 2023’s Glastonbury Festival, there’s an opportunity to look ahead at what’s in store but to also reflect on the experience so far.

Wandering around the Theatre & Circus fields we have seen literally hundreds of performers, from jugglers to trapeze artists to comedians to spoken word poetry. We’ve seen old favourites and new finds. We’ve learned things and learned to forget other things. The festival has demonstrated, once again, why it’s the greatest show on earth.

And what does it have in store for us today? Take a peek at our picks for the day below.

Jon Udry – Circus Big Top at 2:35pm

Jon Udry is a juggler and stand-up comedian whose charming, frank and funny performances leave audiences on the edge of their seats and rolling in the aisles from laughter.

George Egg’s Set Menu – Astrolabe Theatre at 1:40pm

Part comedy show, part cooking show, ‘Set Menu’ is the creation of George Egg, the comedian who cooks, albeit using the most unlikely of instruments. George has toured three shows and cooked over a thousand dishes to date, all in front of a live audience and none of them with a kitchen – and you can try the food at the end. Watch out for our review.

The T.U.R.D.I.S Portaclue Escape Room – Bella’s Field from 11am to 7pm

It’s every festival-goer’s nightmare; getting stuck in a festival toilet. What a perfect location then for a portaloo-themed escape room. The T.U.R.D.I.S (Toilet Utilities Requiring Dexterity, Intelligence & Skill) by Bewilder Box provides a short escape room experience in Bella’s Field throughout the day. A great way to have fun and find a little shade.

John Robertson’s The Dark Room – Cabaret tent at 11pm

Bring your festival to close with an alternative headliner – a trip to John Robertson’s Dark Room. It’s the world’s only live-action, text-based adventure game with the audience is trapped in a retro videogame with a sadistic end-of-level boss. We’re sold.
