Why Volunteer?

Volunteers are right at the heart of the festival. You're the first people our audience see as they arrive, and the last to wave them off as they leave. We are determined to create a volunteer experience that adds to your skills and experience, provides a truly valuable addition to your CV, helps you to grow as a person, and leaves you with some great memories.

  • Access to a huge range of some talented individuals as well as the chance to meet some of our festival partners

  • The chance to make friends and spend the weekend with quite a unique gang of like-minded creative people, passionate about the arts and events
  • References. We’re more than happy to provide evidence and glowing references to document your time spent with us. Just let us know what you need
