Beatles Artist Designs T-Shirts For National Trust At Glastonbury

Artist Peter Blake - best-known for designing the Beatles’ ‘Sgt Pepper’ album cover - has created a couple of designs for t-shirts and ‘body art’ for the National Trust the use whilst at Glastonbury Festival.

The first design (over there >) will appear on a series of limited edition t-shirts, and shows the 15th century St Michael’s Tower at the summit of the Tor, surrounded by butterflies. Michael and Emily Eavis have also been incorporated into the design, along with St Michael himself.

The second is a signed butterfly ‘tattoo’ (below) - chosen to celebrate the special importance of butterflies to the Glastonbury area - which will be available as ‘body art’ or as a stamp on programmes or clothing for all festival goers.

Blake comments: “The combination of the Tor, the local butterfly and the festival really fired my imagination.”

To find out more about the designs, visit nationaltrust.org.uk/glastonbury, or make your way to the bar in the National Trust’s stand, Outside Inn at Glastonbury Festival, near the Bandstand and Cider Bus.
