WI to sell rock cakes at pop festivals

The Daily Telegraph, p. 3

By Stephanie Condron

The idea of a Women's Institute tea tent at a pop festival might once have been laughable. But now WI groups across the country have their sights set on events including Glastonbury where they might forge links with younger generations by serving tea and cake.
One WI group has been baking since June in preparation for next month's Bestival music festival on the Isle of Wight. Another group in Yorkshire hopes to attend the Glastonbury music festival in Somerset next June and moves are afoot for a tea tent at the 2007 Big Chill event near Ledbury in Herefordshire.
