The festival relies on a network of passionate, community-minded volunteers to make the event a success. There are many ways you can help, including:


Volunteering at festival events

This includes:
• Stewarding outdoor events (e.g. kids parades, drama performance, live music events);
• Helping at author and music events in our main venue, the Nairn Community and Arts Centre (front of house, taking tickets, showing people to seats);
• Helping hang artwork or invigilate at exhibitions;
• Assisting with marketing such as distributing flyers, programmes, posters.

Joining the Festival Committee

Help to organise events, and liaise with speakers / performers / artists. We are also looking for people to help us find sponsors for the festival, and to help with administrative tasks, for example:
• Sending out invitations to the programme launch party
• Managing lists of artists
• Creating labels for our Open Exhibition.

Joining the Festival Board

The festival is a charity and company limited by Guarantee. We need Trustees to help with Governance and Sponsorship. Trustees ideally have some experience working with charities, specific skills to bring to the Board and be able to commit for a minimum of 3 years.
