Are you one of ‘The Children of The Holy Thorn’?

Are you one of the children who’ve cut the Sprig for Her Majesty’s Christmas Table during the last 69 years of the annual Cutting of the Holy Thorn Ceremony?

If so, Glastonbury Town Council would love to hear from you, as we would like you to be part in the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in Glastonbury taking place over the ‘long bank holiday weekend’ from Thursday, 2nd June to Sunday, 5th June 2022.

Please send your name and contact details, including the year in which you cut the Sprig, to Sarah Marks on 01458 831769 or email
