Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis has become the first person to visit the event’s most luxurious toilet – featuring a throne, disco balls and its own soundtrack.

The Toilet Of Dreams has been created by international development charity WaterAid to raise awareness of the lack of basic facilities around the world.

Festival-goers are welcome to use the toilet, which has a silver throne, disco-themed purple seat, disco balls, music and mirrors.

Globally, one in three schools does not have clear water or decent toilets.

Marcus Missen, of WaterAid, said: “Without access to basic toilets children around the world are denied the healthy childhood they deserve, the education they need, and the chance to turn their dreams into reality.

“Our luxurious Toilet Of Dreams is helping WaterAid raise awareness that the humble loo really can make dreams come true.

“The Toilet Of Dreams uses pure frivolity to deliver our deadly serious message and encourages festival-goers to lend their support to WaterAid’s #TheWaterFight petition.”

Almost 500 WaterAid volunteers will be campaigning at the festival and collecting signatures for the #TheWaterFight petition.

This calls on the UK Government to make sure that all government plans for schools globally include taps and toilets for every child.
