So just be glad you have alternatives. We won't be packing up the van ready to leave on Tuesday morning; we won't be meeting our friends and making our own little campervan enclave, cracking open the cider and settling in for a week of music, theatre, circus and street food. But nor will we be one of those unfortunate festival goers who've booked their train from Paddington (or anywhere else for that matter) to Castle Cary this week, all affected by strike action. Fingers crossed they make it!
