More volunteers needed for Big Tent

Big Tent, Scotland’s environmental festival is appealing for volunteers to pitch up to help ensure the smooth running of the event which takes place from 23rd- 25th July. Dozens of volunteers are needed to help with manning the ticket stalls, helping out with workshops and assisting with the set up and dismantle of the event infrastructure.

Set on Falkland Estate in Fife against the stunning backdrop of the Lomond Hills, Big Tent is celebrating its fifth anniversary. Since its inception it has grown year-on-year, becoming a must-visit occasion for the whole family.

Lesley McLaren, Event Director, Falkland Centre for Stewardship said: “Our volunteers were absolutely invaluable at last year’s event, and really helped to make the festival a huge success. This year we need volunteers to respond to the challenge and help with tasks such as selling tickets, helping out in the festival café, and stewarding tents.”

“Big Tent is a celebration of best practice in environmental action and cultural creativity. The festival promises a fantastic atmosphere in the most beautiful setting, a wide range of activities, and some of the very best music around.”

McLaren added: “Volunteering at Big Tent is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and experience the festival in a whole new way. We have a variety of jobs and opportunities for volunteers throughout the build up and the break-down of the event and on the days of the festival itself and would love as many people as possible to get in touch and join us.”

Around 12,000 people from throughout Fife, Scotland and further afield are expected to attend Big Tent, which will see people enjoy a packed programme focussed around the themes of Moving with Africa, Know your Place and the Future of Food.

There will be thought-provoking environmental perspectives and intelligent, lively debate for anyone interested in getting into the nitty gritty of global issues, lots of children’s entertainment, alternative therapies, arts and crafts and great food and drink. The music programme will feature an exciting line-up of up and coming and established artists with music inspired by the four corners of the globe.

Organised by Falkland Centre for Stewardship, the three day festival is family-friendly and packed with a range of great activities.
