If you see yourself in this list, we’d like to invite YOU to get involved in our Beltane Fire Festival!

We’re kickstarting the preparations for Beltane Fire Festival with an Open Meeting on Saturday 24 February in Lauriston Hall. Anyone with an interest in helping to create the festival is invited to come along and find out more.

Whether you’re a long-time BFS member, a seasoned performer, or you want to come along for the first time and give something new a go, Beltane Fire Festival offers an opportunity to learn new skills, meet new friends, and be part of a truly unique collaborative experience with a warm and welcoming community.

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 here and on our website 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.
