Have your say

A 66-year-old woman from Sheffield has died at Glastonbury Festival.

Angela D’Arcy from Hackenthorpe died from natural causes at the site in Somerset on Thursday, June 26, shortly before the festival officially got under way.

The mother-of-three had been attending the festival with her family.

A requiem mass will take place for Angela at the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes in Hackenthorpe on Thursday, July 3, at 2pm, followed by committal at City Road crematorium.

Those attending are being asked to wear bright colours in memory of Angela. Her son Luke said the family had been sent many tributes to the former school cook, who was attending Glastonbury for the tenth time.

“We have had a lot of messages and I think it is going to be a really big turnout on Thursday at the funeral,” he said.
