Volunteer event stewards needed for Samhuinn Fire Festival

Stewards are the guardians of the night. Their job is to support the evening’s activities by securing performance spaces and escorting processional groups along the Royal Mile.

They get the best seats in the house, hands-down, and stewarding is a really fun and exciting way to be a part of one of Edinburgh’s biggest public events, especially if you’re new to the city, just visiting for a while or as an introduction to taking part in the festivals that BFS puts on. Stewards will also be able to buy tickets to their official Samhuinn after party at a special performer-only discount rate.

If you have no experience of event stewarding, don’t worry – training will be provided, along with a health and safety induction, and you’ll be working with a friendly and welcoming group of volunteers under the patient and watchful eye of Nick and James, our Steward organisers. Stewarding is also a really amazing way to help build confidence and team-working skills, which will look great on your CV!
