Work experience and internships

If you’re over 16 and interested in gaining some work experience behind the scenes at a flourishing regional festival, please contact our General Manager Victoria Steinitz with a brief CV and some details about how a placement with us would be valuable to you. If you would like to help with our education programmes you will need to have a DBS check. Please include the names of two referees – we will not contact them without asking you first.

Voluntary roles

We are looking for a Funding Secretary to help collate the information needed for funding applications. This is a vitally important and rewarding job at the centre of the organisation, which would take up a few hours of volunteer time a week. The hard work of making applications is amply rewarded with the satisfaction of seeing the charity flourish and gain support from a variety of funders. You will not have to write the applications yourself, but will need to be organised, collate information for the application and feedback for the activity reports, and keep an eye out for deadlines.

Please email our General Manager Victoria Steinitz for more details.

Festival Volunteers

Please join our friendly team of over 50 volunteers to help with the 2017 festival. You could help out at the festival office during the weeks leading up to the festival, or support concerts during the festival. There is always a job for someone to do, regardless or age or skill, and we are hugely grateful for any help – without volunteers the festival would not happen.
