  • supporting the Family Day (5th October, the first Saturday of the festival), assisting with art/craft activities for children

The volunteers will also get free entry to concerts and will have the opportunity to meet some of the artists appearing at the festival.

This is a fantastic opportunity to gain experience of work, build your confidence with speaking to new people, learn about different careers, develop your skills and gain volunteering hours for programmes such as Duke Of Edinburgh Award.


When will I be needed?

You will be timetabled according to when you are free. You will not be expected to be available for the whole 10 days of the festival.

However, on the first Saturday - the Family Day Saturday 5th October- it would be great to have as much help as possible.


How do I apply?
