Would you like to get involved with March Summer Festival?

March Summer Festival is a volunteer-run not-for-profit organisation and the event is run by a team of volunteers who work throughout the year across a number of areas, including finding artists, organising infrastructure, liaising with the local authority, obtaining sponsorship and fundraising. Whatever your interests and whatever your skills, March Summer Festival can use your help.

Volunteering for March Summer Festival provides a wonderful opportunity for you to get learn new, meet new people and have fun. Whether you'd like to help with planning during the year, setting up the site (and de-rigging) or simply on the weekend itself, there is always space and we would be delighted to hear from you.

To volunteer, please email us stating the area of your interest:

THE HELP WE NEED:

Stewarding

Stewards are vitally important to the running the March Summer Festival and the Gala Parade. Stewards provide information to festival-goers, keep and eye out for health and safety issues, and assist in emergencies. We also need people to collect donations and keep the park tidy. Just a few hours of your time during the weekend will help us tremendously.

Site Crew

If you are happy to get your hands dirty shifting all kinds of infrastructure (staging, fencing, tables, chairs etc) and are available even for just a couple of hours on Thursday evening/Friday daytime and Sunday evening/Monday morning please get in touch. No skills or prior experience required, just a willingness to help.

Publicity and Photographs

The publicity team are responsible for obtaining advertising and producing the printed programme for the Festival. They also prepare copy for the media before and after the event. So if you're good with words and get on well with people, please get in touch!

We are also like to involve local artists to help design poster prior to the event and local photographers during the weekend to help capture those lasting memories.
