Who are we looking for?

 

As well as excellent communication and interpersonal skills for the public-facing roles, we require all our volunteers to be reliable, trustworthy and friendly, be able to work outdoors in all weathers, be committed to making the festival a success, and to have a flexible and pro-active approach. The festival comprises of a variety of events and work and we may require volunteers to be very hands-on and willing to undertake a variety of basic tasks (for instance removing rubbish, moving equipment, replenishing the bar, etc).

 

You do not need experience to be part of the team, but it can help with your registration. Jobs are allocated during the event and you may change job roles as the need arises.


Volunteers give their time freely, (if you commit to a role, 100% attendance and application is required).  All volunteers will be given access to, and will be expected to have read, the Event Rules, Event Plan, Event Travel Plan, Premises Licence, etc.

 

We will ask for ID when you arrive at the festival, to verify your age and confirm your identity.
