Open Source Salon with Michael Eavis
landscape – community – experience
Wed 12 April 2017
Hauser & Wirth Somerset, in collaboration with the Roth Bar and Grill, is delighted to present ‘Open Source Salon’ – a discussion group for like-minded creatives and enthusiasts who meet monthly to exchange ideas, hear special guest speakers, and enjoy local food and drink. Each salon consists of a specially invited speaker who will share their unique knowledge and experience on one of the four key themes at the heart of Hauser & Wirth Somerset – Art, Architecture, Landscape, Food.
On Wednesday 12 April 2017, we are thrilled to welcome Michael Eavis, the Founder of the legendary Glastonbury Festival, which champions the motto: ‘Love the Farm – Leave no Trace’. Beginning in 1970 when the one pound ticket price included free milk, today the festival welcomes almost 150,000 visitors each year to experience world class music, be part of a global community and support international worthy causes, such as Greenpeace and Oxfam, to those benefiting the local community of Pilton. Alongside taking us through key moments in the festival’s history, Michael will share some personal memories and a few challenges that come with running an annual festival for over 45 years.
Please note this Salon will take place in the open air, so please ensure to wear appropriate clothing.
Price includes welcome drink, talk on the Terrace and BBQ prepared by the Roth Bar & Grill. Spaces limited, please book in advance to avoid dissappointment.
