Nibley Festival needs you
Volunteering at the Event
Possible roles offered could include the following:
Bar, Stewarding, Back Stage, Entry Gates, Reception (entry for Traders/Artists, etc)
If you would prefer to help out during build-up phase (from the Monday prior), then we ask at least one full day of your time. It can be pretty hectic - a lot of things to move into place, and some design flourishes to be added.
Joining the Team
Planning this festival is a year-round job! There are so many aspects to deal with (artist bookings, public relations, site management, food stalls, trade stalls, bar, sponsorship, non-music entertainment, site decoration, kids activities, finance, legal, business/admin, etc). A few of us have been involved since the beginning, way back in 2007, and are willing to make way for those with new and fresh ideas. The management team aims to meet around once a month from September to June. There are also sub teams 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. 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.
Well a free ticket for starters - and maybe event a T-shirt. But it is 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. And we're a friendly bunch too!
