Our small team depends on volunteers to help at many of these events, keeping our visitors happy and safe and ensuring they enjoy their festival experience to the full.

Because our volunteers are vital to the delivery of the festival, we have worked hard over the past few years to build a dynamic and inclusive volunteer programme. It’s important to us that Open House volunteers provide a valuable link between the festival and our audiences – but also that they have a great time doing so.

You will attend an induction and receive support and an opportunity to attend volunteer training so you feel confident and comfortable in your role.

Applications to volunteer for Seaside Revival and the August Festival will open again in 2020, please check back then to apply.
