Want to know more about taking part in Beltane Fire Festival 2019? Come along to our Open Meeting to hear about how you can help throw our amazing public ritual celebration of the beginning of Summer 🔥🌞
We're looking for drummers, dancers, clowns, musicians, acrobats, fire spinners, puppet makers, techies, artists, crafters, costumers, photographers, film-makers, event stewards and all-round epic people with a desire to be part of a world-famous festival, bringing an exciting and fiery modern twist to Celtic traditions!
Whether you’re a long-time BFS member, a seasoned performer or you want to come along for the first time and take part, Beltane Fire Festival offers a opportunity to learn new skills, meet new friends and be part of a unique, collaborative experience with a welcoming creative community. If you decide to be a part of it you’ll end up alongside hundreds of other volunteers and in front of an audience of thousands, in the heart of the stunning city of Edinburgh.
WHY COME TO THIS OPEN MEETING?
We’ll break the festival down for you so you can learn about the performance and production groups you might want to join, talk to the organisers, get to know the story behind Beltane, and sign up to take part.
If you can’t make it but would still like to be involved, details of all performance and production groups (including contact information for the organisers) will be posted at beltane.org
shortly before the Open Meeting. You can email the individual organisers to let them know you’d like to be considered for their group if you can’t sign up in person.
