Arlo Parks says: “It was an absolute pleasure to read tonight’s bedtime story from Glastonbury and bring joy and dreams to young people - what a special moment!”
Guy Garvey says: “The first time I did a CBeebies bedtime story it was for the rest of the band's kids, I didn’t have any of my own. Now I’ve got one and they’ve got more. The book I’ve chosen is a favourite bought for me by my best friend Pete Jobson who also has a couple of munchkins. So this is a lovely way to do something for all of them and to be doing it at the best party in the world is a super bonus.”
Readers of CBeebies Bedtime Stories in the past year have included Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge; Harry Styles, Tom Hiddleston, Ellie Goulding, Dave Grohl and Rose Ayling-Ellis, who signed her story in British Sign Language.
