What our stewards say...

Read some testimonials of stewards, who have helped us at previous festivals, these should reassure anyone still not convinced that this is exciting and rewarding opportunity.

Thanks for the opportunity to be involved with the running of the 2014 MFFF. We enjoyed stewarding, and in doing so we felt much more an integrated part of the festival. By putting more in we got more out. The organisation was friendly and done with a smile, which was much appreciated by those giving their time to steward. Looking forward to 2015!

Just to say Thank You all for being so friendly and helpful.

We all had a fantastic festival and loved our stewarding duties.

We really enjoyed the festival and all the great artists as well as everything else that was going on.

Hopefully if you let us back next year we will see you all again.

Comments 2012

What a fabulous weekend we had stewarding at the MFFF. I was a little nervous as I was unsure what to expect with it being my first time at a folk festival and my first time stewarding, however, was soon made to feel at ease and welcome by people who had done it before. The organisers (especially Sandra) were fantastic as all stewards knew what was going on and where they needed to be. Can’t wait for next year and will be volunteering for years to come.

The main thing is that you really feel appreciated.

I enjoyed the stewarding tasks. Doing them gets you really involved in the atmosphere of the Festival. You get to meet everyone, in lots of different ways!

A delightful venue, friendly people and great organisers make this Festival so special. Looking forward to 2013!

Comments 2010

2010 was our first time as stewards at Moira and our allocated duties included supervising the concert doors, car park direction and collecting litter to keep the site looking tidy. These tasks were in no way over taxing and we still found plenty of time to enjoy the weekend. All volunteers were provided with orange fluorescent tabards - a useful way to stand out in a crowd!

We hadn’t met any of the committee organisers previously but we were made to feel most welcome. They work hard all year raising funds and planning this event but still need reliable volunteers on the day to make things run smoothly. Anyone considering volunteering should be prepared to do their share. It’s a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and acquaintances, have a memorable experience and be part of the festival.

Stewards help to make the Moira Furnace Folk Festival the success that it is. I decided to volunteer and found it to be a very rewarding experience. At the first team meeting we introduced ourselves to each other and discussed the various duties. Nothing too difficult.

I realized we were a good cross section with a wide variety of experience. We were young and we were older! Our shared love of the music ensured we would work well together. Over the weekend strangers became friends and I am sure we are all looking forward to meeting up again this year.
