Our vital team of volunteers get to take part in a wide variety of activities which help build confidence, skills and experience alongside being part of a fantastic community of like-minded people. Our aim is to create a collaborative atmosphere and support volunteers to contribute to the Festival however they can.
Although being a volunteer can sometimes be hard work, it is a great way to meet new people, gain valuable experience and to see lots of wonderful performances. If you, or someone you know, would like to know more email our Festival Chair.
And if you still not sure, check out what our existing Volunteers say below:
“I have really enjoyed volunteering for the past two years. I have met interesting co-volunteers and have heard a range of speakers at the events, many of whom I wouldn’t have thought of going to see.”
“I have so enjoyed being part of the Huddersfield Literature Festival. There is a real team feeling among the volunteers as we help deliver an exciting event for the town. Seeing and hearing authors in the flesh and making new discoveries has brought a new dimension to my attitude to enjoying literature. I am proud to be part of the Festival!”
