Jazz fan bishop visits festival
Bishop of Bath and Wells
The bishop plans to mingle with festival-goers
The Bishop of Bath and Wells took centre stage at Glastonbury Music Festival on Sunday afternoon.

Rt Revd Peter Price delivered a four-minute sermon on the Pyramid Stage for the 112,000 revellers, who have been enjoying acts like Oasis.

The diocese in rural Somerset usually has a population of just 1,000.

In his speech at 1500 BST, the bishop talked about the challenges facing young people today. It was the jazz fan's second festival visit.

Bishop Peter also asked his audience to think about the impact of poverty on the world - a cause close to the heart of festival organiser Michael Eavis.

Before and after the talk, the clergyman said he intended to mingle with the crowds and spend some time enjoying the music.
