Who are you?
Who am I 🎵I’m Jean Valjean!🎵( couldn’t resist)
I’m Mark Goodman.
What do you do as part of the MoS to make the Festival happen?
I run Constance Stewart ( in the uni) during the daytime and help with the evening events.
What is your full time job/profession?
I am a technician in a dental laboratory ( boring)
Why are you involved in the MoS?
I started attending the festival, then did some volunteering. I realised what a special event it was and how hard people worked to make it so. I wanted to do more. The best thing about being part of the MOS are the other members of the MOS!
Where can people find you during the Festival?
What is your highlight of the Festival?
Meeting people and seeing smiling faces but my individual feature highlight is the evening gin walks that I get to participate in.
For full transparency the team are all unpaid, however they all get a bed in the student accommodation at BGU (including breakfast on the rare days they are not working by that time) and one lunch on the Tuesday after the Festival, by way of celebration. They all pay their own meals, transport and out of pocket expenses to attend and work the Festival. They will be on duty from Thursday to Monday and many will be on site from Tuesday prior to the Festival.
