Volunteer with us - get involved, gain experience and make connections

Ever wondered how such a large and diverse festival runs?  Well here's a chance to find out - we have two great new opportunities to join our friendly and dedicated team. Both roles are office based and we'll provide an induction and guidance throughout your placement.

Image Archivist Internship

We’re building a new image archive to help us promote this extraordinary festival, and are looking for someone to take the lead in developing it, populating it with our rich stock of images, reviewing how it works, and training the team in its use.
