Contribute to Kelburn – Get Discount Tickets
At Kelburn we are always amazed and delighted at how many people want to get involved, be creative and put on a show.
We love the fact that so many of you are inspired to create something that makes Kelburn Garden Party an even more magical experience for everyone.
Every year we get dozens of applications from people asking if they can come along and contribute to the event artistically in return for free tickets. As the festival is completely funded by ticket sales, we can’t afford to offer this option to everyone who applies even though we’d love to say yes to every offer.
So we have launched the Kelburn Contributor Programme where successful applicants will receive a substantial rebate on their festival ticket in exchange for their creative input. This way we can get as many of you engaged as possible, and make the Kelburn Garden Party an even more fun place to be for all involved.
Your contribution can range from running a weird happening, a strange competition, a flash-mob, to creating a piece of art. We welcome all ideas; it’s what we’re all about! Come join in and add your own special energy and skill to the Kelburn Garden Party
- Tiddlywinks tournament
- Pillow Fight
- Art installation
- Acoustic set or small gig
- Face painting
- Flash mob
- Tea Party
- Water pistol fight
- Creative workshop
Please note that this only applies to the weird and wonderful; this is not for bands or DJs to apply.
Simply buy your Kelburn Garden Party weekend ticket here.
You should then complete the Application Form below or by following the link here.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on 20th June 2022.
Our programming team will assess your application, and if we think your plan or idea will suit the festival, we’ll be in touch to finalise the details.
During the Festival weekend, we ask that you photograph your contribution as it’s happening. You will then need to show these photos to the Special Events Team after you’re done, and then we will hand over the agreed number of participants a £40 refund on their ticket in cash right there and then!
We will let you know by Monday 1st July if your application is not successful. If that’s the case, you can use your Garden Party ticket as normal, or sell it on. All tickets are non-refundable. Usual Ts&Cs apply.
