Glastonbury’s founder, Michael Eavis, has been awarded an honourary doctorate by Buckinghamshire New University for his services to music, the environment and enterprise. Michael was at the awards ceremony on Tuesday September the 8th as part of the Faculty of Creativity and Culture’s celebration of student successes. A number of the graduating students (including Malte Ernsting, Tamsin Vella, Heli Marjanen and  Allen Ward) helped AGF with additional research for the Greener Festival Awards scheme in 2007 when they were in their first year at University – 2007 was when AGF first launched the Awards. Also on hand was Alison Tickell, director of cross music industry climatre change group Julies Bicycle and music lawyer Ben Challis, a visiting professor at Buckinghamshire anda co-founder of A Greener Festival – and as it is he who is posting this piece, he made sure he got a picture with Michael – hehehe-  in all his finery – although Michael looks far better – and the new doctor claimed he was going to wear his fine new robes around Worthy Farm – perhaps even to milk the cows ![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
