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 Point & Participants' Hub Assistants
We need Information volunteers to help us give out information to the general public, answer general enquiries and assist at our Participants' Hub; a drop in space for anyone involved in putting on a Brighton Fringe event. We will have several Brighton Fringe Information Points located throughout Brighton, including our pop up Box Office on New Road and another at Brighton Train Station. We will need people on weekdays and weekends to help us fulfil these roles.
Fringe City Event Team Volunteers
Fringe City is our outdoor public event with two stages which showcase free performances from Brighton Fringe events, taking place every thusday. Fr Saturday and Sunday in May on New Road.
We need volunteers every weekend in May to help us produce these events; the event team 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.
Our event team also help us with stewarding and general liaison with the public and performers who are performing at Fringe City, they may also be asked to help by handing out Brighton Fringe flyers, brochures or giving out general information. Stewards will be fully briefed and trained before they assist at Fringe City.
