Maze festival organisers need volunteers to find their way
HEROES are wanted to support the first-ever Maze Festival for Saffron Walden.
Plans are well underway for an exciting and event-packed festival in from August 20 to 28. In order to get everything ready in time, the festival committee is putting the call out for enthusiastic helpers and volunteers.
Fit young men to play the role of the Greek hero Theseus and the villain Minotaur are urgently wanted for the walking float as part of the Carnival parade on Saturday July 2.
No acting skills are required, just a readiness to dress up and join in the fun. Candidates must be aged over 18 and available for the carnival procession in July and/or on both festival weekends
In addition, in preparation for the Maze Festival, a number of temporary mazes will be set up around town. The help of practical, design conscious volunteers to assist with the construction is needed. Assistance will be required towards the end of July and in the week before the festival begins.
