Room G25 (ground floor) of St Margaret’s House, 151 London Road, Edinburgh, EH7 6AE
Calling all 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 event, bringing an exciting and fiery modern twist to Celtic traditions…
Yes, it’s Samhuinn time again and we’d like to invite YOU to come along and get involved in creating our amazing public ritual celebration of the turning of seasons from Summer to Winter in the atmospheric and beautiful centre of Edinburgh. Whether you’re a long-time BFS member, a seasoned performer or you want to come along for the first time and take part, Samhuinn Fire Festival offers an awesome opportunity to learn new skills, make fabulous friends and be part of a truly unique experience. Everyone is welcome!
The Open Meeting provides an opportunity for you to hear about the performance and production groups you can join, talk to the organisers, find out more about the festival and sign up to take part. The venue for the meeting is a dance studio with a sprung floor, so please avoid wearing heavy boots or spike heeled shoes. The main street entrance from London Road is on the ground floor and involves a few steps outside, but there is also a car park at basement level with lifts up to the ground floor, so the meeting is completely accessible to wheelchair users and anyone who may have difficulty with stairs.
You are welcome to register your attendance on our Facebook event page.
