Get involved

Nibley Festival needs you

We may have had to cancel for two years in a row, but the show will go on, and we're more determined than ever to put on a spectacular event for 2022!  We're almost there...


Volunteering at the Event

Positions have mostly been filled now, but we are retaining a waiting list in case circumstances change for folks between now and July.  Please email if you'd like to sign up. 
Our requirements are that you must be at least 18 y.o. (sensible and responsible obviously!).  We would ask for 4 hours of your time in return for 1 Adult ticket for the full weekend, with tent camping included.  (Depending on our requirements you may be offered split shifts of 2-hours, possibly in different areas.)

Possible roles offered could include the following:     
Bar, Stewarding, Craft Tent, Back Stage, Entry Gates, Reception (entry for Traders/Artists, etc)

Joining our Committee

What’s involved?
Planning this festival is a year-round job!  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 main festival committee meets once a month on Tuesday evenings from September to June. There are also sub teams (covering finance, legal, business/admin, bands, public relations, site management, food stalls, trade stalls, sponsorship, non-music entertainment, site decoration, 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 meetings.
What’s in it for me?
Well a free ticket for starters.  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!
I’m interested. What do I do next?
