As 2011 is the 10th anniversary of the International Year of Volunteer, organisers also hope to recruit even more volunteers to help before and during the festival.

The ROTW committee is keen to make the event as enjoyable and safe as possible. Thanks to some careful financial planning by the charity in recent years, improvements will be made following direct feedback from festival-goers. This year these will include an increase in the number of toilets, improved trackway for disabled access and improved security.

Organisers are also planning to make future festivals 'greener' by increasing and improving recycling facilities.

More information will be here when available.
