SOS Africa Glastonbury Festival Pyramid Stage Charity Abseil
Abseil from Glastonbury Festival's Iconic Pyramid Stage for SOS Africa

The SOS Africa Charity is delighted to announce that we have secured one of Britain’s most iconic landmarks for this year’s summer Charity Abseil fundraising event. On the weekend of September 20th/21st, Glastonbury Festival’s world famous Pyramid Stage will be transformed into an abseiling extravaganza (#sospyramidabseil).
Over the course of the two day fundraising event, thanks to the support of Michael Eavis and the Glastonbury Festival organisers, fundraising teams of six from across the country will tackle their fears; ascend the Pyramid and free-fall abseil from its roof, and all in aid of Somerset’s SOS Africa Charity.
The 100ft, 40 tonne structure - comprising over 4 kilometres of steel tubing - was constructed in 2000. The design was based on Egypt’s Great Pyramids of Giza. The third Pyramid stage built since the Festival was founded in 1970, has hosted some of the world’s leading music artists including Beyonce, Jay Z, Radiohead, REM, Coldplay, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen - the list goes on. During last June’s Glastonbury Festival weekend, this same venue was rocked by the infamous Rolling Stones, during a 3 hour greatest hits performance.
Not only are we giving you the unique opportunity of treading on this same hallowed turf and abseiling from the roof of Glastonbury Festival’s Pyramid Stage, we are also inviting you to participate dressed as your favourite bands. So whether you form a team of ‘Dolly’s Daredevils’ or ‘Arcade Adventures’ just make sure you’re not ‘Foolhardy Ferrys’ or ‘Silly Allens!’
