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 & Participants Hub Assistants
We need Information and Assistant 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 hubs 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; this takes place on New Road Brighton. Fringe City takes place every Saturday and Sunday in May, and the Brighton Fringe Family Picnic happens in Pavilion Gardens on Sundays 7th and 14th May. 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 the stewarding and general liaison with public or performers who are performing at Fringe City they 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.
Days and Times
We need volunteers every day from the 29th of April through to the 7th of June. Info Point and Participant Hub volunteers are needed week days and weekends. Event Team volunteers are needed on some Friday evenings and Saturdays and Sundays.
Our volunteer roles are managed in shifts, between 4hrs long and 6 hrs long, and you can choose to do one shift or as many as you like.
