Stroud man rubs shoulders with movie legend Russell Crowe at Glastonbury

MOST READ

A Stroud man has spoken of his “delight” after meeting actor and musician Russell Crowe at Glastonbury.

Mike Harrison was attending the music festival when he caught a glimpse of the Gladiator actor, who was performing at Glastonbury’s tented Acoustic Stage on a sun-baked Saturday afternoon, to sing with his Indoor Garden Party music project.

Mike, who was working at the acoustic camping gate, said: “I was having my lunch and I saw him in the backstage hospitality and I ran to speak to him, but he was just about to order his food before his performance, so I left him alone, but I was then invited to go and see him in the backstage production area – he was happy to have his picture taken – I told him I was a massive fan and he put his glasses on and was happy to have his picture – he’s a proper legend and was brilliant.”

And it got even better for Mike, who was attending his 19th Glastonbury, Julian Partridge, landlord of the Stirrup Cup pub in Bisley, managed to arrange a special pass for Mike to watch Russell Crowe perform from above the gantry.

Mike’s memorable evening got even better when he was allowed to watch one of his favourite bands, Ocean Colour Scene, from the side of the stage.
