Go Tell The Bees Digital Procession – Frequently Asked Questions

June 19, 2020

Are you interested in taking part in the procession, but want to know more before you make up your mind? Read on to find out what will happen…

What is the Procession?

Go Tell the Bees Digital Procession is a festival of music, theatre and dance, created in Pembrokeshire to celebrate the summer Solstice. We have been working with local residents for several weeks, giving them a platform to share their talents with you.

How will it work?

The procession will take place on a Zoom conference call and you will be guided through proceedings by Olwen the Goddess of the Sun and Belenus the Earth’s Gardener.  You do not need a Zoom account to take part.

What will I be asked to do?

You will be asked to wave the sunflowers that you’ve made, or dance around and sing and generally feel like you are in the most exciting festival procession ever.

We encourage you to dance, sing, and clap along at home waving your sunflowers throughout – we will go live to your homes several times during the Procession. (When we are about to go live a slide will appear on screen saying ‘Everyone at home get ready 321’ so you know when you will be live.)

What should I wear?

Please wear bright festival clothing – you can paint your faces, get (ecologically) glittered up, wear a mad hat or a giant sunflower in your hair, whatever will get you in the party vibe! 

How long will it be?

The Procession will be around 35 minutes long. 

What access provision is available?

The Live Broadcast will include BSL interpretation. You will be able to see this as a participant.

On demand versions with captions and audio description will be available following the live broadcast.

Can I leave the Procession?

You can leave at any time if you change your mind.

I’d like to take part in the Procession, how do I sign up?

Please fill in our sign up form, and we’ll send you all the details you need to take part. The deadline to sign up is midday on Saturday 20 June.

I’ve decided I don’t want to take part. Can I still watch?

If you don’t want to take part in the procession, that’s absolutely fine. You can sit back and watch along on our AM channel at 7pm. Head to amam.cymru/nationaltheatrewales

If you have any other questions, please email team@nationaltheatrewales.org, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
