Jeremy Corbyn to speak at Glastonbury

The Labour leader will talk Trident at Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will be appearing at Glastonbury on Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage to speak in opposition of the government’s controversial Trident initiative.

Invited to the festival by political folk-punk artist Billy Bragg, who will again be curating the Left Field stage at this year’s Glastonbury, The Mirror reports that Corbyn will be speaking on behalf of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.

Bragg announced the appearance via the Glastonbury website, writing: “The election of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader has galvanised a new generation of activists and this year at Left Field and we aim to give them a platform to discuss issues around social justice, the economy, gender and the possibilities for genuine change under a Corbyn government.”

Glastonbury Festival runs from 22 June to 26 June.
