Larmer Tree Festival

Larmer Tree Gardens, Wiltshire/Dorset

Thursday 19th - Sunday 22nd July

Larmer Tree Festival is back this summer, bursting with all the creative inspirations, activities and artists that those who have joined us in past, have grown to love and expect.

We're looking for volunteers to help in various areas of the festival who have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, a flexible and proactive approach, a friendly disposition, commitment and reliability.

This is an extremely popular festival to volunteer at and with it being a day shorter than previous years, less volunteers will be required. So, be sure to apply early to avoid missing out.
