Numerous clubs, societies and community groups assist through organising individual events. Amongst these are Orkney Vintage Club through Bill Stevenson, Orkney Camera Club (Steve Henderson), the St Magnus Church Birsay Trust (Bertie Harvey), and the Peedie Kirk (Helen Muir).
The artwork, design and all visual aspects are looked after by the artist Selena S. Kuzman.
The coordination of events in the islands is through the kind help of various organisations and people, who include Kathleen Scott of North Ronaldsay Community Association, Peter Ford of the Gable End Theatre in Lyness, and Rebecca Marr at Hoy Kirk.
Over the years, the Festival has awarded honorary life memberships to a number of people. The first was the late Thora Bain, who had an immense interest and knowledge about all aspects of Orkney, and the second was the late Dr Elaine Bullard, the Orkney botanist.
Other Honorary Life members include Dr Tim Dolan, Alex Bain, Mike Drever, Bryce Wilson, Sandy Firth, Lord Wallace of Tankerness, Dr Edvard Kobal who is the director of the Slovenian Science Foundation and a regular visitor, and Prof. Tom Stevenson who has given a talk in every festival since its start in 1991.
The Festival is directed by Dr Howie Firth, who was the first director of the original Edinburgh International Science Festival.
