David Beckham has attended his first ever Glastonbury Festival – but not before doing a worthy deed first.
The world famous footballer, 42, attended Glasto with his 18-year-old son Brooklyn on Friday night and together they watched Radiohead rock the main stage.
But before they arrived on the festival site in Somerset, the pair called in at a brand new affordable housing estate just down the road.
The estate, called Maggie’s Farm, is an ongoing project launched by Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis and it will eventually house more than 100 people.
There are currently 22 completed homes on the site and a further 18 under construction. By 2020, Michael – who donated the land and the stones from his quarry to build the properties – hopes there will be a total of 50 houses on Maggie’s Farm.
Along with families, they will also be rented out to some of the workers who help make Glastonbury Festival the huge event that it is.
While officially opening the development, David helped plant a tree before taking a tour around some of the homes and meeting the residents who have already moved in.
Speaking to The Telegraph while at Maggie’s Farm, David also confessed that – unlike Brooklyn – he is a festival virgin: “Believe it or not, I’m 42-years old and it is my first festival and first time here,” the former England captain said.
“I’m excited and slightly nervous because I don’t know what to expect apart from the great acts and people having fun.
“[Brooklyn] has been to a few festivals before so he’s well-prepared.”
It appears, however, the pair could not convince Victoria to join them. Shame, she would’ve loved it…
