Volunteer at the Festival

There are loads of hands on ways you can help too! We need lots of lovely volunteers at the festival which will run from 16th July - 8th August on the barge and also in Tower Gardens from 24th - 28th July.
The festival in Tower Gardens is free for all and supports local musicians, theatre groups and community projects.

We're looking for:
- Bar and Cafe Volunteers
- Cake Bakers to donate cakes for our festival cafe and cake stall
- Family friendly festival workshops
- Face Painting, kids crafts and games etc.
- And general tidy-Uppers!

We will also be looking for festival furniture amongst other things so if you have an old sofa you no longer want or tables and chairs you don’t want, ideally that you can hold onto for us until the festival, then get in touch!
We're also looking for 2 fridge freezers, a sink, lots of mugs for tea and coffee, side plates, tea spoons and forks.
