Thank you for offering to be part of the History Festival 2022 Volunteer team.
Volunteers are critical to the success of the festival which will run from Monday 20th – Sunday 26th June 2022.
As a Volunteer you will be asked to be involved in a variety of roles: helping in the main tents, introducing speakers, working at the Information Desk, meeting and greeting school groups, assisting during outdoor talks (pop-up tents and Speakers Corner) and Volunteer Tent supervision, amongst other tasks.
Be part of the Festival happenings, meet great people, learn and have fun. We can also offer free camping to over 18s.
All finish times are approximate so you will need to be flexible.
We may ask if you are able to change or amend your sessions to help us out but this is entirely voluntary.
Preference is given to volunteers who are available for four or more sessions and priority will be given to people who are available to volunteer for a number of sessions across multiple days. Session options are listed below
Lunch will be provided for volunteers on the morning session and supper will be provided for those on the evening session, regretfully only campers and volunteers who are working all day can be given lunch and supper. Tea, coffee, soft drinks and biscuits will be available at all times. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements. There are other catering options available to purchase on the site. To reiterate, those volunteers who are camping will receive lunch and supper.
Applicants under the age of 18 will need to provide a signed parental consent form and code of conduct and may be contacted for a telephone interview. In addition, we require that all under 18 applications have the applicants personal email address and that they ensure that the account is able to accept incoming emails (we find that many school email inboxes tend to be full!).
Free camping is available for volunteers over the age of 18, those under 18 have to be camping with someone over the age of 21 and cannot stay on site if that person leaves.
We look forward to meeting new friends and old…
David and Juliet
