Last weekend our intrepid Photopoint volunteers spent an afternoon on the Meadows in Edinburgh with this energetic bunch – the Samhuinn 2016 Stewards! Stewarding offers a unique view of the festival and a great way to take part in the event, learn crowd safety skills, boost your confidence, hang out with lovely people and be welcomed into the BFS community. If this sounds perfect for you (and your friends and flatmates!) there’s still plenty of room in the group for new members. Their next get-together is this Sunday at 2pm outside the Pavilion cafe on the Meadows in Edinburgh and you can get in touch with their glorious leader, Group Organiser James, at stewards@beltane.org

You can see lots more photos of Samhuinn 2016 rehearsals and preparation in this album and group portraits in this album on Facebook. All our content is publically viewable so you can see if even if you don’t have a Facebook account.
