When will I get my volunteer rota?

qq

The festival programme launches in March. We’ll begin to make arrangements for the volunteer rota in April and May. You’ll receive more information in the run up to the festival.

Will I get to watch the events I volunteer at?

qq

You’ll often get to enjoy parts of performances, but you’ll be needed front of house for most of the event. If there are events you’re excited to see we recommend that you buy tickets rather than volunteering. We can’t guarantee how much of the event you’ll have to time to watch.

What does volunteering involve?

qq

Volunteer tasks can vary. Most shifts involve front of house duties such as checking tickets and showing people to their seats. Other roles include working in our shop, driving artists and helping set up and clear venues.

How can I get involved as a volunteer?

Let us know you’re interested by emailing volunteer@orkneyfolkfestival.com. If you volunteered with us before, we’ll have your email address on record. We’ll be in touch when we begin to make arrangements for our next festival.
