Introducing the Beltane 2019 Group Organisers and Blues

We’re very excited to announce that we have chosen the groups and their organisers that will make up Beltane Fire Festival 2019. Another piece of the puzzle has fallen into place, and we can now look forward to signing up volunteers to each of these groups at our Open Meeting in just over a week. Our Group Organisers will be pulling out all the stops over the next few months to recruit and train their volunteers, plan, create, and rehearse their concepts, and generally work hard to create an epic festival. We wish them the best of luck!

Ella Humphries and Caroline Heavens will be continuing as Blues this year, joined by former Blue, Josh Bergamin. Jamie MacNeill will be taking up the withies for the first time as a new Blue this festival.

More information about the groups themselves and the Blues will be appearing here on our website in time for the Open Meeting (which you should totally come to if you want to be part of the festival – Sunday 24 February 2019 , 2pm at Edinburgh Methodist Church, 25 Nicolson Square.
