We need you!
As a not-for-profit organisation, we are always on the lookout for enthusiastic and reliable volunteers to join our friendly Festival team
What we offer you
In return for two four-hour shifts over the weekend (or during setting up or take down), you will get a full weekend ticket (including camping) to enjoy the festival. Volunteering is a great way to meet new friends and like-minded people and be part of the festival family. And you get the satisfaction of helping support us raise lots of money for good causes.
Who we are looking for
- Site Crew Team – You’ll be part of a team that helps to build the festival site (such as putting out seating and putting up fences) and dismantling after the festival finishes. This role does involve manual labour both indoors and outdoors, so you will need to be physically fit and enjoy the weather. We will need people during the day on Thursday and Friday before the festival begins, and on the Monday after the festival closes. We are now offering the opportunity for a small number of site crew to work both of their shifts either on the Wednesday before the festival or on the Monday, leaving the rest of their weekend free. (If you are interested in this pattern of working, please make a note in your application).
- Venue Team (Concert Marquees, Dance Marquee, Childrens’ Marquee, Village Hall, Workshops)– You will be part of the team welcoming people to events (Admission Stewards) and ensuring our audiences are safe throughout the festival site (Safety Stewards). There may be some light cleaning activities too. Venue Team roles are often the most popular, so apply soon!
- Car Parking Team– Team members are needed throughout the weekend from 1pm Friday to 5pm Sunday to take money and help visitors and crews park safely. The busiest times will be during the day on the Saturday. You will of course have to work outside so please bring clothing appropriate for the weather.
- Camping Team– You will be helping campers find their pitches, and being on hand to deal with any queries. Shifts are available from Thursday and throughout the weekend. Please bring clothing appropriate for the weather as you will be outside for most of the time.
If you are friendly and approachable, committed, and want to help visitors enjoy the festival as much as possible, one of these roles is definitely for you. (once you have accepted a shift we rely on you carrying out your duties for the safe operation of our festival. Please let us know immediately if for any reason you cannot meet your comitment)Apply to become a Steward
