To help celebrate the tercentenary of Queen Anne granting the town its charter in 1705, the Glastonbury Conservation Society hosted an evening at the town hall on Wednesday March 30, to hear Dr Robert Dunning, the county and Abbey historian, explain how Glastonbury, unlike many other towns, came to have a mayor. Around 150 people including VIPs turned out to hear the talk.
