Benefits to self

Volunteers will have the opportunity of working for an award-winning festival. They will be able to make suggestions. They receive certificates of appreciation. On request, we can provide references. We also bring outstanding work to the notice of the volunteer provider.

Benefits to others

People visiting our website will benefit from an updated and well-managed website. The development of social media will help us to reach young people. Attractively produced event leaflets/flyers will attract more visitors to events. Event stewards will enable our events to proceed smoothly.

Transport details

Time commitment

The amount of time volunteers commit depends on individual volunteers. We would appreciate input from September 2020 to August 2021. However, we would not expect all volunteers to do this. Some projects may take a short time, others may require more work.

Support

Officebearers of the festival will have regular meetings/online communication. Before embarking on a project, the volunteer will receive detailed information about the aims of the task, some dos and don'ts, etc.

Expenses

We reimburse bus fares. When volunteers steward an event for a few hours, we provide them with refreshments.
