Going solo at a BJC is nothing to worry about
You won't be alone for long if you don't want to be.
It is extremely easy to meet new friends at a BJC, but here are a few tips to help.
- Tell someone it is your first festival (I know it will be your first festival, otherwise you would not be on this page) and ask if there is anything they recommend doing at the festival (there will be).
- Spot someone performing a strange trick that interests you? Ask them if they can break it down for you.
- See someone using a strange prop? Ask them if you can have a go.
- If there is a Ceilidh on, ask someone to dance. Ceilidhs often involve a lot of partner swapping so it is a great way to meet new people.
- Go to a workshop.
- Run a workshop.
- Ask at the registration desk about volunteering. Helping is easy and a lot of fun. You'll get to meet volunteers who have been to a lot of festivals. These are the really interesting people who have a lot of stories to tell and can be a great source of information for how to get the most out of your festival.
If you want some company for the journey to the festival you could also try asking for, or offering a lift share on our social media groups.
