Volunteering at the Festival is open to everyone aged 16 and over.

Motivated by being part of something extraordinary, Festival volunteers meet new friends, have fun, gain a sense of pride and achievement, 'give something back' to the city and the community, and in some cases their experience counts towards furthering their careers.

The Festival is delivered with the help of over 200 volunteers who support all of the events in the programme, and undertake tasks including:

  • Stewarding
  • Backstage crew
  • Technical support
  • Drivers
  • Administration
  • Publicity
  • Social Media
  • Event hosts
  • Customer service

We welcome interest from people of all backgrounds and abilities. Please get in touch to discuss any requirements. You can register your interest via this online form, or to find out more information, contact: volunteerfestival@stables.org
