SEALL will begin its summer programme of live events on 5th July outdoors and under canvas surrounded by the beautiful gardens of Armadale Castle, a perfect setting for this year’s theme of Scotland’s Coasts and Waters.
Karine Polwart, Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham, Daìmh, Blue Rose Code, Rant, Deirdre Graham and Adam Sutherland, are just some of the world-class musicians performing live this summer.
As well as music, the programme features drama by the Walking Theatre Company; puppet mastery with Swallow the Sea Caravan Theatre; a remarkable aerial performance on five-metre-high giant swings; a three-day literature event with the Story Wagon, featuring live literature sessions with the likes of Gavin Francis, Alastair McIntosh and Myles Campbell; spectacular and colourful dance performances with Oceanallover; children’s shows, music workshops and activities and a visit by a floating piano on its way around the world.
Safety of our audiences, performers, staff and volunteers is our main concern and we will have have very strict risk assessments and safety protocols in place to keep everyone safe and socially distanced in accordance with the Scottish Government’s strategic framework.
We were fortunate to receive funding from the SCVO Adapt and Thrive fund to purchase a massive stretch tent, outdoor stage lighting and livestream camera equipment so we can put on live, in person events outdoors and under canvas.
The programme will be out in early June and available from our website and social media platforms.
We are looking for people of all ages to help us deliver events safely.
Work is anything you would like or are able to do and could include:
- Gate/ticket staff
- Selling CDs and books
- Selling raffle tickets and hosting raffle
- Car Park Attendants
- Litter picking and recycling
In addition, we are also looking for people to help us set up and take down tents and equipment.
Anyone who wishes to get involved is asked to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01471 844207.
A volunteer induction day will be held at the end of June.
