Team Reading – Can you help support Reading Mencap at Reading’s “other” music festival? 28/4/2018

Stewarding / Event Support volunteers needed for Reading Mencap

Reading’s “other” music festival, the Are You Listening? Festival, returns to take over the town on 28 April in support of Reading Mencap!

Celebrating its sixth year, Are You Listening? boasts a diverse line up of talented local and international acts performing across 8 of Reading’s finest venues.

We’re looking for outgoing, confident volunteers to help support the festival in a number of tasks: exchanging tickets and wristbands; overseeing venue entry; taking donations, and promoting the event on the day. Get involved if you’re a music lover or if you just want to support Reading Mencap.

Various slots are available (and needed!) from 10am to 1am, and all volunteers doing a 4-hour shift will receive free entry to the festival, a festival t-shirt, and both drink and meal vouchers.

Volunteer inductions will be held on 9 April and 17 April (no need to attend both sessions) at South Street Arts Centre from 7.30 to 9pm. If you cannot attend an induction there will be opportunities to meet with Alex or chat with her over the phone

To be part of the festival team simply complete the registration form found HERE
