Get Involved


Spectra, Aberdeen’s Festival of Light, returns to the city in February 2018.

Building on the success of the event over the past few years, this year sees the festival grow out beyond Union Terrace Gardens into more city centre locations than every before. Over the course of 4 nights Spectra will bring the city to life showcasing light, sound and public art installations.

To deliver this ambitious festival we need your help.

Numerous volunteering opportunities are available, all of which will give you the chance to be part of Aberdeen City Council’s signature events on the¬†Culture and City Events calendar.

We are looking for volunteers of all capacities Рincluding production, operational, event based and arts lead.  For more information or to note your interest, please email Zara Malley-Smith on!
