Volunteer at the Festival - there are lots of ways you can help!

Volunteer at festival events: Help out at festival events – this can include stewarding outdoor events (eg kids parades, drama performance, live music events, helping at author and music events in our main venue Nairn Community and Arts Centre (front of house, taking tickets, showing people to seats), helping hang work at/ invigilate at exhibitions, assisting with marketing (putting our flyers/ distributing programmes/ posters). There are many and varied ways to help. It’s also great for useful networking if you ae looking for a next step/ change of direction employment-wise.

Join 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.

Join the Festival Board: The festival is a charity and company limited by Guarantee. We need Trustees to help with Governance and Sponsorship, and are currently seeking a Festival Chair and Secretary. Trustees would 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.

We’d love it if you were interested in joining us at any level. Please let us know if you’d like to be added to the Volunteer mailing list. Our Volunteer engagement Day is usually in June.

Please send something about yourself / your interests– it helps us match up your skills to volunteering activities. Contact Tanera Bryden, Creative Coordinator: info@nairnfestival.co.uk
