Here are the answers to the most common questions that we get asked in the festival office. Please do take a quick read through for any queries that you might have, as the festival is run entirely by volunteers, and so, inevitably, the closer it gets to the festival, the longer it will take us to reply. Should your answer not feature here, please do get in touch and we’ll do our best to answer.
May can be the most glorious month in Orkney, as the daylight hours are very long (darkness only falls around 11pm), but, like anywhere else, if we are unlucky it can be horrid. We would advise coming prepared for the odd shower, but also don’t be surprised to discover a few patches of sunburn – even a slight breeze is very misleading, Orkney’s sun is strong!
