The archive includes posters, programmes, designs, interviews, film, photographs, correspondence, t-shirts, tickets and other memorabilia, as well as personal accounts, maps, press cuttings and documents that trace the origins, workings and evolution of the Festival. The V&A continues to work with Glastonbury Festival to collect and archive material from each Festival.
