The Volunteers team and your Venue Managers are there to help, any queries – please just ask!
Have a great festival, and thanks for volunteering your time.
Terms & Conditions
- All volunteers are required to participate for a minimum number of hours as follows, although quite a few willingly give more of their time. These hours will be spread over the Festival weekend:
- Adults (18yrs or over) – 4 hours per day at the festival i.e. 16 hours if arriving Thursday, or 12 hours if arriving Friday. We may allocate fewer hours to volunteers who are performing at the Festival (e.g. Morris dancing), or to those who assist the Festival in other ways.
- Your priority as a Volunteer is to help us run a safe, smooth and efficient Festival. We will endeavour to allocate duties to preferred areas, but we cannot guarantee it will always be possible.
- If some of your volunteering duties clash with an event you wish to see, we ask that this be dealt with on arrival at the festival. Please be aware that we endeavour to meet any request, but that it is not always possible to change rotas.
- All volunteers are expected to be vigilant, courteous, sober and Health & Safety conscious.
- Drinking alcohol or smoking whilst on duty is not permitted at any time.
- For outside duties please bring clothing suitable for all weathers (including sun screen).
- Duties may start as early as 8.00am and could finish as late as 1 hour after the final event.
- Venue Managers will brief you at the start of your duties – please arrive promptly.
Please contact Sheila at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries – see you at the festival!
