Help this popular local festival run smoothly

Stewarding / Event Support volunteers needed for Woodley Festival of Music and Arts

The Woodley Festival aims to provide a high quality festival and we are very selective in our choice of professional adjudicators, venues and other facilities.

In addition to being an enjoyable artistic success, the 2015 Festival saw some 6,900 visitors including 2,360 performers and 1,020 performances. The majority of performers are school-aged children within Berkshire, although the festival is open to all.

The choir section is held at Emmbrook and Bulmershe schools. Instrumental, Piano, Vocal and Speech & Drama sections are held at the Oakwood Centre, Woodley.

Volunteers are needed to help with all the events, helping people park, welcoming them and generally helping us to make everything run smoothly and maximise people’s enjoyment.

Please contact us if you can help for a couple of hours or more.
