Volunteering at Brighton Fringe is a great way to gain valuable festival experience, meet new people, develop new skills and help contribute to England’s largest arts festival. We will require a wide range of volunteers as the festival approaches:
Information Hub and Participants Services Assistants:
We need Information and Participants Services Assistant volunteers to help us give out information to the general public, answer general enquiries and assist with participant services. We will have several Brighton Fringe Information hubs located throughout Brighton including our Information hub on New Road, another at Brighton Train Station and our Participant Services hub at the Mesmerist. We will need people on weekdays or weekends to help us fulfil these roles.
Fringe City Volunteer Roles
Fringe City is our outdoor public event with two stages which showcase free performances from Brighton Fringe events; this takes place on New Road Brighton. Fringe City takes place every Saturday in May, and the Brighton Fringe Family Picnic happens in Pavilion Gardens on Sundays 2 and 23 May. We need volunteers every weekend in May to help us produce these events.
We will need Fringe City Stewards to help us with the stewarding and general liaison with public or performers who are performing at Fringe City. Stewards may also be asked to help by handing out flyers, brochures or giving out general information. Stewards will be fully briefed and trained before they assist at Fringe City.
We will need Event Assistants to help us to set up and take down the Fringe City kit before and after shows, provide assistance to our sound engineers during shows, help keep show times to schedule and liaise between performers and the event management team.
