Team Reading: Be part of the Reading-on-Thames Festival 2019 – 26 – 29th September

Stewarding / Event Support volunteers needed for Reading UK CIC

We’re looking for volunteers for this year’s Reading-on-Thames Festival!

The festival aims to be a catalyst for a new spirit of collaboration and partnership across Reading’s creative and cultural sector.

Volunteers’ duties will vary across events but may include working in teams to:

  • help set up and clear venues
  • manage audiences
  • ticket checking
  • ensuring safety on site
  • responding to any queries

There will be opportunities to volunteer throughout the festival but we are particularly looking for helpers at two big events on the evenings of 26th and 29th September

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of what is rapidly becoming an established part of Reading’s cultural calendar. It may be of particular interest to those looking for experience in live arts events, arts administration or customer service. Volunteers should be friendly, approachable and always willing to help. You must have a great team spirit and be reliable and adaptable at all times.
