Thanks to all those who took part, SPRUKE 2013 was a great success. The enormous wealth of talent within the volunteer ranks, created a very polished and professionally run event. We were thrilled by lots of very positive feedback about how smoothly it ran. Festival-goers and our SPRUKE CREW also enjoyed the participatory and inclusive feel of the festival.

We want to build on that to make the SPRUKE 2015 even better. Festivals like SPRUKE rely on generous and enthusiastic volunteers. We need you again!

Register here as a SPRUKE volunteer. If you’ve had experience, we’d absolutely love to hear from you. If you don’t, we’ll provide you with a solid grounding in what’s required. Help us to deliver a first-class festival experience.
