Following news that Welsh raver Shakin' Stevens is to play this year's Glastonbury, we can exclusively reveal the news that The Wombles, who were big in the 1970's, will play this year on The Pyramid Stage.

Great Uncle Tobermory, who is now in his late 70's, and uses an ear trumpet for everyday social interation told us: 'Michael Eavis phoned us up, and asked us if we wanted to play this year. Obviously, Tobemory and Tomsk leapt at the change, but Madame Cholet turned the opportunity down. She does not get around like she used to, her new hip causes her problems.

'We have a new Techno-Banjo album coming out in June, so that will feature quite heavily, as will old hits like 'Remember you are a a Womble. These days I quite often forget that. Mikey Eavis also said that we could help tidy the fields afterwards, make use of the things that everyday folk leave behind'.

In a similar story, The Flumps are reforming to play The Isle of Wight Festival, while Postman Pat has lined up The New Seekers, Kula Shaker, and Roger Waters to play at this year's Greendale Musical festival.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
