What are you up to next June? Do you want to be part of something rewarding? Have you been to THE BIG TENT FESTIVAL (previously known as Holifield Camping Weekend) before and want to get involved? Are you keen to spend time outdoors and have a hand in creating this unique event? Holifield Camping Weekend is aimed at people with special needs, their carers and families, and will be held on Thursday the 15th (5pm-9pm) and Friday the 16th of June (9am-9pm) & Saturday the 17th of June 2017 (9am-2pm), with camping and a cafe onsite.

Since this event is completely non-profit and is in fact funded by the Holifield Farm Project, to make this valuable event more viable we can offer part or full exchanges rather than cash: camping on the beautiful Holifield Farm , advertising on our social media and/or website, or in special circumstances a ticket to one of our other festivals.  We hope that you will feel called to help us make this beautiful event extra special.


We are looking for performers, music & movement workshops, art & craft workshops, stalls, talks, theatre, circus skills, loan of equipment, theatre shows and more. Please complete our online proposal form on this link asap – we hope to have all our acts booked by February 2017.

We are also looking for crew to help with the following: (exchanges on offer!)

  • Journalism – helping us get the word out there…
  • Filming & photography
  • Marquee Set Up (2 needed, 8 hours each – date tbc)
  • Site Decor (2 needed, 8 hours on a day leading up to the event – date tbc)
  • Steward/gate Crew (2 needed, 8-10 hours total, split over 2 or 3 days. )
