The Beltane Fire Society (BFS) is a registered charity, based in Edinburgh. We have a board of trustees who are volunteers, elected by our members each year at our annual general meeting (with additional members coopted throughout the year if needed, by vote of the board themselves). They are responsible for making sure BFS delivers on its charitable aims, that we comply with all the requirements placed on us, and help oversee the smooth running of the charity and our festivals.

Our 2020-21 Board of Trustees:
TOM WATTON, CHAIR
Having been involved with Beltane Fire Society for years, having even served as the Event Coordinator before, I am glad to be part of the board. I am willing to get stuck in whatever work needs done to support the community and helping manage our offices and storage spaces effectively.
NEIL BARTON, TREASURER
After several festivals as a photographer, I am very excited to join the board as Treasurer to ensure the best financial management for the charity.
I have been involved with the Society on and off over the years and am glad to serve both on the Board and as one of the Blues, helping to support our community and act as a bridge between our trustees and dedicated volunteers.
