Weekender couldn't take place without the amazing efforts of our volunteers. They are the face of the festival, welcoming thousands of visitors to the city and helping our artists so they can give their very best performances over the weekend.

If you’re interested in joining the team, come to a drop in meet-and-greet session or complete our online form below.

Our next volunteer drop-in meet-and-greet session takes place on 22nd August from 5pm-7pm in the Community Hub at John Lewis.
