Festival Volunteers

Be the public face of our festivals - join us as Festival Volunteers for two weekends of amazing outdoor arts in Leicester’s city centre this summer.

We are looking for Festival Volunteers to support the fantastic outdoor arts programmes at Journeys Festival International on 22 and 23 July and Re/action Festival on 26 and 27 August.

You will have the chance to join in both of our festivals and experience our events delivery from an exciting inside perspective.

Our two festivals 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. The programme at Journeys Festival International ranges from outdoor shows, circus, dance, hip-hop and disco bikes to paintings springing to life, virtual reality blending with live performance and an urban safari. At Re/action Festival, we will explore Creativity for the Climate 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 Journeys Festival International and 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.
