Re/action Festival Volunteers

Be the public face of our brand-new Re/action Festival - join us as a Festival Volunteer for a weekend of celebrating Creativity for the Climate.

We are looking for Festival Volunteers to support the fantastic outdoor arts programme at Re/action Festival on 26 and 27 August. You will have the chance to join in on our brand-new festival and experience our event delivery from an exciting inside perspective.

Together with Leicester City Council and De Montfort University, we’re celebrating Creativity for the Climate, focusing on people and communities coming together to create small changes that add up to make a big difference.

On the Bank Holiday weekend, our festival will bring the streets of Leicester to life with world-class performances, installations, exhibitions and creative activities across the city centre and all for free. We will explore how to create small changes that add up to make a big difference with marvellous work by artists who address the climate emergency, share their skills, offer workshops in repurposing/reusing, and celebrate Leicester’s diversity.



We’re looking for motivated volunteers to support us in the delivery of Re/action Festival this summer.

If you’re looking to gain some experience in festival and event delivery or you just want to support a project in your local community, then join us as a volunteer. You will be able to shadow our team of professionals and carry out a range of different tasks that you feel able to take on. No previous festival experience is required, but you will gain valuable skills and memories to build on.
