Building on from the success of SRtRC’s involvement at Glastonbury, the campaign travelled to Kinross to spend the weekend at T in the Park Festival.
The campaign felt privileged to receive an invitation to host a stall in the ‘
T in the Park attracts over 80,000 festival goers and this granted us a unique opportunity to reach out to such a large audience and share and promote our anti-racist message.
In order to attract people to our stall, we designed and created temporary tattoos featuring our logo, with a festival twist! We also had our usual range of posters on offer and were delighted that Jim Duffy and Ludovic Roy attended the festival with us; their presence in our marquee added an extra dimension of excitement for the festival goers.
When our team weren’t staffing the stall, they still worked hard to further promote our campaign and proudly waved our campaign flags whilst enjoying the main stages acts. Our flag featured on TV coverage of Muse’s headline performance it was great that our festival intervention was reaching people even beyond the festival itself!
On the whole, we found the visitors to our stall to be really supportive of the campaign, and are grateful for the many donations we received – we raised £400 over the weekend and would like to thank everyone for their generosity and support.
We would like to thank the T in the Park organisers (especially Mark Currie) for their support and hospitality at the festival and the volunteers who worked so hard for us to ensure the weekend was a massive success.
