The Festival is currently looking for individuals and groups to get involved in 'Culture Day Forres', on Saturday 29 September -

This special day provides opportunities for artists, community groups, and the cultural and heritage sectors to promote the work they do - and it's a chance for audiences of all ages to connect with the diverse range of arts and cultural activity that takes place in Moray throughout the year.

If you'd like to showcase what you do, invite new audiences and members to join, and encourage participation in your group/activity throughout the year – then Culture Day Forres is the perfect platform.

Would you like to be part of the 3rd Findhorn Bay Festival? Join the team of Festival Volunteers!

Volunteers are key to the success of the Findhorn Bay Festival and are needed from Wednesday 26 September to Monday 1 October 2018. Volunteering during the Festival promises to be an extravaganza of fun with a variety of roles needed day and night, indoors and outdoors, and across the whole of the Forres area.

The Findhorn Bay Festival provides a unique experience for volunteers with hands on skills learning, immersion in the local arts and cultural scene, whilst having a lot of fun and meeting new people.  And of course, you’ll get to see some events for free too!

The Festival is produced by Findhorn Bay Arts, who in 2015 received the Volunteer Friendly Award from tsiMORAY, an award in recognition of an inclusive volunteering approach within the community.

Travel expenses can be covered for all volunteers and those aged 16 to 25 will also be rewarded with Young Scot reward points.

To join the Findhorn Bay Festival team of volunteers please email [email protected] or call 01309 673137.
