We are always looking for new volunteers to join the Coastival team. It doesn’t matter if you can’t do the whole weekend – we don’t expect you to! Any time you can give us is greatly appreciated.
Duties mainly include managing the public. You will be the ‘first face’ of the festival and a ‘front line’ problem solver, helping to ensure the safe, effective and efficient running of the festival. You will have to interact with festival visitors, performers, staff other volunteers.
You may be assisting at entrances/exits, information points, the box office and any other areas where the movement of people attending the festival may need to be managed. You might have to deal with lost children, prevent children from straying off site, prevent people sneaking into paid events, check tickets, make sure people get to where they need to be, give directions, provide information on local amenities, watch out for hazards and most importantly, help to keep people safe.
If you are polite, courteous, calm and helpful, we’d love you to be part of our team!
