Still feeling deflated post-festival weekend? How about a little reminder of the brilliant set of volunteers who make the whole event possible…
We pride ourselves in being a volunteer led festival. Everything – from being involved in the main committee, to taking tickets on the door or selling them to our visitors, to introducing the events and providing information for our guests, even to organising the volunteer schedules themselves – is made up almost entirely of volunteers whose help we are eternally grateful for. As with any highly successful event, the festival requires a vast amount of time and dedication (and sanity) but to extremely good effect! I hope everyone involved returned home on Sunday evening feeling thoroughly pleased with themselves and with each other for providing the solid foundation that is crucial to the success of any volunteer-led event.
In a world which is becoming increasingly individualistic, it was so heartening to spend time with a group of people working together as a community. You can’t fake the atmosphere created by a team and it certainly provided the back-bone to the wonderful festival feeling which left all who attended with an irremovable grin all over their faces.
Many congratulations to everyone involved!
