Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games begin search for ceremony volunteers

Organisers of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games have begun a search for voluntary cast members to take part at the opening and closing ceremonies.

With six months to go until the start of the Games, around 3,000 cast members are required for the ceremonies, to be held at Celtic Park and Hampden, Scotland’s National Stadium.

Applications to be part of the cast, which covers both ceremonies and some elements which will be pre-recorded, will be accepted until 14 February with auditions due to take place in March.  

All mass cast places are voluntary and no previous experience is required. 

Organisers are looking for enthusiastic individuals who are willing to represent Glasgow and Scotland and contribute their passion, talent, energy and positive spirit to the ceremonies.

David Grevemberg, Glasgow 2014 chief executive, said: “The opening and closing ceremonies of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games will be a moment for Glasgow and Scotland to shine brightly on the global stage, demonstrating the genuine passion and enthusiasm the host city and country have for the Games. 

“This is about showcasing the very best of a city and a nation to an international audience and how better to do that than through the enthusiasm and passion of its people.”
