Oban’s popular Winter Festival is hosting an open night to hook helpers for this year’s event.

Videos from last year’s festival will be shown during the cheese and wine pop-in evening, which is open to everyone, between 7pm and 9pm at the Rockfield Centre on Wednesday March 20.

A spokesperson for the festival said: ‘We’re hoping to see lots of people turn up who want to help run or plan the 2019 festival, or are interested in putting on an event as part of it. We’re open to ideas and looking for suggestions, as well as getting helping hands signed up. It’s just a pop-in event, so people don’t have to stay the full two hours.

‘The festival has grown so much that it has turned into a friendly monster that needs more than just five people to look after it. People don’t need to take on huge or multi-tasks. Any help, big or small, will be much appreciated.’
