How to become a


In the run up to the Festival and during the Festival Week we will need the support of a team of committed and enthusiastic volunteers to help us deliver the Festival. We have a number of volunteers already signed up from previous years but we would still like to hear from anyone interested in working with us. Whilst we do everything we can to include all people who are interested, we may not be able to involve everyone who applies.

Before the Festival, we will need people to help us distribute marketing material (Distribution Volunteers) and before and during the Festival Week there will be a range of opportunities for volunteering (Festival Volunteers).

We will be running two Festival Briefings for volunteers in April 2017 and all volunteers should attend. No previous experience is needed but you must be over 16.

Become a volunteer

If you are interested in supporting the Festival please sign up to volunteer and we will be in touch with you in the next few weeks.
