mFEST! One week to go!

There is so much going on!

The countdown to mFEST has begun! We are officially one week away! If you check out our lovely sister page you will see a shiny bold clock in the left hand corner of the page ticking away…

This week all macrobert staff received a festival briefing from the mPOWER team, with cupcakes! Which were lovely! We heard about all the exciting events and shows going on over the weekend and were given maps to see how the festival will be laid out. Remember entry to the university grounds is free and even if you don’t have much money there is a lot to keep you entertained. We have our free workshops, street theatre, merchandise stalls, open mic stage, new band stage, food stalls and circus games! Phew – how will you fit it all in?

We also had our lovely young volunteers in this week who all were given training in the relevant departments they will be working in over the weekend. For example volunteers will be working as technical runners, in our information hub or as venue ushers – to name a few jobs! We at the macrobet can’t wait to have their young cheery faces giving us some much needed help and us giving them some wonderful work experience.

Just to remind you if you have not already heard, the weekend festival passes have been slashed to half price! That’s £50 full / £42.50 concession / £35 under 18s. Plus you can now also buy a festival day pass for £10 which will allow you to see all access to all events on that day depending on availability at the time of the show. So it is first come, first served. Really this is unbelievable value for money!

One week to go macrobert friends! And we can’t wait!!
