Yes, it’s Beltane time again and we’d like to invite YOU to come along and get involved in creating our amazing public ritual celebration of the beginning of summer with hundreds of volunteers and an audience of thousands, overlooking the stunning city 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, Beltane Fire Festival offers an awesome opportunity to learn new skills, meet new friends and be part of a truly unique collaborative experience with a warm and welcoming community.
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. If you’re unable to attend but would still like to be involved, details of all performance and production groups, including contact information for the organisers, will be posted here at beltane.org shortly before the Open Meeting.
