Selby Arts Festival Is Looking For Volunteers
Are you interested in event management, stewarding, promotion and the arts? Are you able to spare some time in July to volunteer on an exciting new event? Then why not consider joining the volunteer team at Yorkshire's newest Arts Festival - Selby Art Festival.
From the 22-30 July, Selby will witness an explosion of culture with events taking place throughout the town. Performers will include BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner and Mercury Prize nominated Seth Lakeman, the hilarious Ed Byrne and the much-loved fourteen-piece ukulele collective The Grand Old Uke of York.
Festival organisers are looking for enthusiastic volunteers, aged 16 plus, who have an interest in the arts, events management and a desire to bring together one of the must-see events in Yorkshire this Summer.
The festival is currently looking for volunteers who would like to help in the following fields:
Marketing & PR
Volunteers will work with the festival's existing Marketing and PR team to help raise the profile of the festival through social media, blogging, photography etc
Technical & Production
This will be an opportunity to work with the festival's production team on the technical and production side of the events and learn how a festival is put together.
Volunteers will work with the festival's Front of House Manager / Head of Stewarding to steward all Selby Art Festival events including the performances at Selby Abbey. Volunteers will be required to work a minimum of three events, one of which will be an event they choose.
Most of the volunteering for the festival will take place in July. This will include two training days for the Technical & Production and the Stewarding teams in early July ahead of the festival.
Selby Arts Festival organisers will be holding two volunteer briefing events in Selby on the evening of Thursday 4 May and in the afternoon on Saturday 13 May. At both sessions, there will be an opportunity to hear more about volunteering at the festival and to meet some of the Festival Management Team behind the exciting new event. Each session is likely to last for about an hour.
