What we offer you

In return for two four-hour shifts over the festival 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. You will also have the satisfaction of helping support us raise lots of money for good causes!

Who we are looking for

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:

Site Crew Team

Work as part of the 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 involves manual labour both indoors and outdoors, so you will need to be physically fit and enjoy the weather.  Site crew volunteers do a double shift by either working all day Thursday, or all day Friday or on Sunday evening/ Monday morning. 

Venue Team

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) in the marquees, village hall, and church.  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 on Friday to 5pm on Sunday to take cash and cards, and to 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 be 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.

How to apply

You can follow the link below to take you to the application form where you can express a preference for the type of role you would like to do, and the times you would prefer to work:

We try very hard to meet your preferences where we can, but this might not always be possible.  You will receive a confirmation that your application has been accepted.

All applicants will be offered shift options which will be sent to you by email by 31st May once exact requirements are known. Please don’t contact us about shifts before this, as we won’t have the answers!

Please let us know as soon as possible if your situation changes and you won’t be able to volunteer this year – this really helps us plan ahead.
