GO / Green Man Deadlines Approaching & A New Trustee!

Here’s your reminder of all the upcoming pertinent dates and deadlines for prospective GOs and Green Man applicants / nominations as well as some bonus information on our latest trustee.

Group Organisers

All GO applications and proposals are due in one and a bit weeks, by 22:00 on Friday 2 February 2018. There’s heaps of information to help you, including all the forms you need, over here.

Remember, we’re also open to project proposals, from those who have an idea for the festival that they feel doesn’t necessarily fit within a group structure, or require volunteer recruitment. Drop us an email at festival [at] beltane [dot] org for more information.



We’ve not recieved notes of interest for the current groups yet:

Tech, Whites, Reds, Processionals, Earth, Air & Water Points, Torchbearers and Contact Point.

We’re aware that people often leave putting in applications until the last moment, but if you know you’re going to put in an application for one of these groups then please let us know soon.  On the other hand, if you’ve had an idea on the backburner for a while and see a vacancy you’d like to have a go at, now’s your chance!

For more information on notes of interest see here.


Green Man Selection

Meanwhile, the deadline for Green Man nominations closes in just three days, at 10pm on Saturday 27th January 2018. If there’s a member of our community that you feel you’d like to put forward for the role, get emailing.

If you yourself feel drawn to the Green Man character, you have one week to submit your notes of interest, with a deadline of 7pm on Saturday 3rd February 2017. You can find all the information on nominating or submitting here.

Good luck!


A New Trustee

We’re excited to announce that member and former BFS Coordinator Georgia Royes has been co-opted onto  the board of trustees, focussing on assisting with event planning across the year and looking into ways BFS can be more sustainable in its practices.
