Commonwealth Games – Open Ceremony Opportunities

On July 23 the Opening Ceremony of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games will officially launch Glasgow and Scotland’s biggest-ever festival of sport and culture. At the heart of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies will be the 3000 people who will make up the cast which will be performing on these unforgettable occasions – and you could be one of them. It’ll be a once in a lifetime opportunity to get involved in one of Glasgow’s biggest ever parties.

We are very keen for colleges and universities sports groups, student associations and any individuals to take part in this exciting opportunity.

Brand new auditions will take place at the end of April, and we are particularly interested in male volunteers, and people under 45.  If you missed out on the first lot of auditions back in March, this is your last chance to get involved.  The group auditions are energetic, fun and all you need is bags of enthusiasm, and a bit of commitment to attend rehearsals.


Financial support to assist with costs is available on an application basis to successful cast members and will be targeted to assist participation in the ceremonies by those facing challenges meeting costs including independent living support, carer costs, childcare, travel to Glasgow and ensure that they can complete their experience. The funding will be independently administered by Volunteer Scotland and Voluntary Arts Scotland which has developed detailed application criteria. For further information please contact


You don’t need to have previous experience as we will teach you all you need to know..  Bring your personality, commitment and maybe even a friend along to one of our group auditions and start the experience of a lifetime.

Apply by 18 April here.
