Get involved

Nibley Festival needs you

Read on if you’d like to contribute to the delivery of one of the biggest, most exciting family festivals in Gloucestershire…
 
How can I help?
We’re looking for people to join us to help to deliver the festival each year. Whilst we need lots of wonderful volunteers on the day, we also need help planning what’s now a big community family event which raises money for some great local causes.
 
Ideally we’re looking for new blood to join the main committee and/or festival sub-committees. Many of us have been here since the start. Whilst we love working on the festival, naturally there comes a point when people decide to move on. We’d love it if new people joined to help ensure that the knowledge is shared and we can continue to deliver a fantastic festival experience for families for many years to come.
 
There’s a huge variety things to get involved in depending on how much time you’d like to commit – from helping with the site management, supporting the booking of bands, helping to ensure the bar runs smoothly, ensuring stall holders and sponsors are secured and creating the colourful onsite décor.   
 
What experience are you looking for?
You don’t need to be an expert or have experience in a particular field – you just need to be happy to muck in where you can and be confident to take initiative if you decide to take a more active lead in a workstream.
 
What’s the commitment?
The main festival committee meets once a month on Tuesday evenings from September to June. There’s also sub committees (covering finance, bands, site management, stalls / sponsorship, kids activities etc ) which also meet as needed. As we get closer to the event there’s obviously more work to do in helping to set the event up.
 
But it’s really up to you how much time you want to commit. There are plenty of ways you can help – even if you don’t come to committee meetings.
 
What’s in it for me?
It’s hugely rewarding being part of a passionate team that is essentially putting on an enormous fundraising party. Helping to deliver one of the biggest events in the region which raises serious money for local causes feels pretty special.
 
I’m interested. What do I do next?
