Hola, We are Ginny and Terry and we are looking for an extra couple or two friends to help us prepare and run a 2 day charity music and fun festival, to be held on the 7th and 8th October, in aid of the local Asociacion de Animales Reg No. 5272 9(ie. animal rescue) in the magical Alpujarras/Sierra Navada mountains.

We live in a cortijo, where the festival will be held, in a beautiful secluded valley with our three very friendly dogs plus any others that we happen to be fostering at the time, currently we have 6 dogs. We have a swimming pool, gazibo, Hot Tub, BBQ and shady dining and sitting areas as well as lots of sunny spots (all a little alternative!).

Whilst secluded we are only 1km from the picturesque, whitewashed Moorish village of Valor (15 mins walk along a good track) with shops, great bars and restaurants, bank, doctors etc.

Accommodation is in our comfortable and spacious yurt or our vintage VW Westfalia camper van which is close to our house. We cook, eat and socialise together and there is always food available if you fancy a snack between times. We cater for both meat eaters and vegetarians but sorry not vegans.

We don't require any experience, simply enthusiasm and a smile, but must stress that whilst there will be time to party you would also be working during the festival.

We will be working along side you, usually 5hrs per day (in the morning) 5 days per week. Jobs will vary enormously from building the stage and outdoor cinema screen to clearing land for car parking and camping or digging long drop toilets. We also run a small tourism company that we may need a little help with. Afternoons, evenings and two days a week are free for you to go exploring, siesta or laze by the pool, unless we are in a total panic immediately prior to the event when we may ask for a little extra.

We have limited internet so that you can keep up with your emails but for everything else there is a choice of local bars with free wifi.

Ideally we are looking for people who can stay a minimum two weeks.

Feel free to drop us an email or give us a call if you have any questions at all.

Hope to welcome you soon!
Saludos Ginny y Terry
