Ian Smith, Head of Sponsorship, Orange UK said; â€œWe are thrilled to be teaming up with the creative talents of V V Brown for this yearâ€™s Glastonbury festival. The Orange poncho has become a staple item of Glastonbury festival attire over the years and VVâ€™s design is bound to be a must-have.â€
