Planning Beltane: from the first idea to the first foot-fall

Thursday 5th June, 2014
Room 1.24, St Margaret’s House, 151 London Road, Edinburgh
7:30pm to 9:30pm

Question: How are our festivals planned, when are decisions made, and who makes them?

Ian, one of our Trustees, will propose a radical alteration to the planning cycle of our major events, and want you – the BFS community – to discuss the options, ramifications, pros & cons, and make alternative suggestions of how we get from zero to the first foot-fall of the first performer.

There are many things to consider:

  • Creating a storyline
  • GO applications
  • Selecting the Royal Court
  • What does the Producer do
  • What do the Blues do
  • Who’s essential
  • Why can’t we block out the next 5 years

So – performers, stewards, tech, past performers…. you all have a reason to be part of this:

  • Why do we do what we do?
  • When did we change from what we did?
  • What have you seen elsewhere that works well?
  • What would changes mean to the groups you tend to be part of?
  • Is “doing nothing” an option?

You are welcome to register your attendance on the Facebook event page.
