Thanks to all those who took paChris Slater via volunteerrt, SPRUKE 2017 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 2019 even better. We have a new festival precinct this year, SunPAC and the adjacent Sunnybank Community and Sports Club- good news it’s air conditioned! 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.
