Volunteer Opportunity: Festival Steward
About this opportunity
We want to give our audience the best possible experience when attending an event or festival, so they come back again and again. As part of our stewarding team you are paramount in making this possible.
As a steward you are the eyes and ears of an event – you are likely to be the first person aware of something happening and your primary role is to keep people safe and informed. Whilst the vast majority of your duties are concerned with greeting and assisting the audience, you will be relied on to act quickly and calmly in an emergency.
Time: Volunteers will be contacted with a brief description of the event/festival and the timings. This will be discussed at your informal discussion.
