Volunteers are vital to the success of Wirksworth Festival. It is great fun to be involved with the Festival at whatever level you think is right for you and it really is very rewarding.
The Festival is run by a very small team of part time staff and a big bank of volunteers helping out at every level, from programming and managing events, to selling the wrist bands; from being a board member to putting up signage; from building the gallery spaces to helping out with the parking; from administrative to very practical tasks, there is a role for everyone!
“I became a volunteer for the Festival following some time out of work after having children, it really helped me to brush up on my skills and boosted my confidence enormously.”
Some people choose to offer an hour or two of their time during the Festival itself, whilst others offer ongoing support throughout the year.
