Get involved with the Festival

Every year there are lots of opportunities to take part in the Festival – from joining our team of crucial volunteers, to performing at a Festival event.

In 2017 129 people volunteered at the Festival, assuming roles from Spiegeltent Host, to dog-walker, to VR swing operator; and 39 people took part in theatre shows Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring. and We meet in paradise.
