Biography for Robert Richards


Robert has worked for the Glastonbury Festivals for over 20 years, and is now it's commercial director.

He is also the Chair of Somerset Film a county wide charity based in Bridgwater at the Engine Room.

Previously to his work at the Festival Robert was a full time film maker. He produced the Julien Temple directed film "Glastonbury".

The history and importance of the Abbey are always key to people's appreciation of it as an institution. For me that is added to by the beauty of the grounds, and ruins. The town of Glastonbury has at it's literal heart a green oasis of peace, tranquility.
