It takes hundreds of people to create Solas Festival and we really appreciate every bit of time that each one of them contributes. If you are able to donate, volunteer, tell people about the festival, or even organise a group to come to the festival then you can make a huge impact on a great weekend.

Hands-on support

Solas Festival depends on enthusiastic and skilled volunteers. If you feel that you could support us by lending a helping hand, please take a look at our volunteers’ page.

Financial support

If you share our vision for Solas Festival, you might wish to consider contributing financially, by making a donation, fundraising on our behalf or becoming a Solas Saint (more on this below). Why not add a top-up donation when you buy your tickets, or add Gift Aid to your donation so that we can claim the tax back? Contact if you think you could help with our fundraising.

Become a Solas Saint

Our community of ‘Saints’ commit to a regular monthly donation to Solas Festival, providing increased stability and vital cash-flow between festivals. As our core supporters, the Saints are at the heart of our community and have a key influence on the future shape and direction of the festival. They also get some jolly perks like free downloads and early updates on the planning process.

The amount you donate is up to you; most Saints give £5 to £30 per month but whatever you can manage will help us.

Gift Aid

If you’re a UK taxpayer we’ll also be able to claim Gift Aid on your donation. Gift Aid was introduced by the government in April 2000 and allows charities to reclaim the tax you have already paid on your donations. For example, each £1 donated by you will be worth £1.25 to us once we have reclaimed the tax. On a donation of £10, this will mean an extra £2.50 for our work. And it doesn’t cost you a thing.
