Volunteer for b-side festival 2023

b-side volunteers are an essential part of the organisation and the festival just can’t happen without them.

We have lots of different opportunities available – from helping artists install work, stewarding artworks, front of house meet and greet to helping visitors enjoy their festival visit.

If you are looking for a career in the arts or events volunteering for us can provide some great experience, good CV content and you will have plenty to talk about at your interview!

If you are sociable, want to meet new people and make new connections then b-side can help – we work with artists, designers, producers, residents, and communities, and we only work with the nicest of people!

Volunteer shifts at the Festival are in 4 hour blocks and we can pay £5 per shift towards food/travel.

It was a great opportunity to be part of the festival. It’s a wonderful festival with a real buzz about it
