Volunteers are integral to the running of the Fringe during the week of the festival, with up to four stewarding each event. The aim of volunteer stewards is to help make sure the performances go without a hitch and both the audience and performers are happy. This might mean that you are selling or checking tickets, helping the acts set up or liaising with committee members, all with the support of your venue manager.
This is a great opportunity to get involved with a small but growing fringe festival, and may be of particular interest to those looking for experience in live arts events, arts administration or customer service. Stewards should be friendly, approachable and always willing to help. You must have great team spirit and be reliable and adaptable at all times.
You can volunteer as much or as little time as you are able during the festival, but we do ask that you are available for at least two slots of roughly 90 minutes during the week, as well as one training session in the run-up to the Fringe (roughly 1 hour long).
As a thank you for your time, you may be able to watch shows which you are stewarding, as well as receiving a free ticket to any other Fringe show of your choice.
Some venues have wheelchair access and parking spaces for volunteers. All venues have good public transport links. If you have concerns about any of these factors please email Sarah, our volunteer manager, to see what needs can be met at the address below.
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please email email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
