Petition to rename John Peel tent at Glastonbury


Recommended Posts


Almost two decades on, however, a member of the public has launched a Change.org petition calling for the John Peel stage to be renamed, saying its current title is a 'slap in the face to sexual abuse survivors, women, children and decent people'.

The petition cites accusations of sexual abuse by Peel and comments he made himself throughout his career, including a comment to The Sunday Correspondent in 1989 when he described having a relationship with a teenager.

At the time, he said: "Girls used to queue up outside [...] I remember one of my regular customers, as it were, turned out to be 13, though she looked older.”
