Feanedock, The National Forest
Friday 5th - Sunday 7th July
We are looking for volunteers who can commit to approximately 15 hours work over the course of the festival. This will be split into 3x5hr shifts. If you will be bringing children, we can arrange a more flexible shift arrangement to fit in with childcare. Please contact us if you would like more information.
Timber takes place at Feanedock, a 70 acre woodland site on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border and part of the forest in the making at the heart of the National Forest.
This team covers greeting vehicles as they arrive to the site, taking parking payments from those who have not prepaid and directing vehicles to the correct parking area or the live-in vehicle field. You may also be asked to help with directing vehicles into bays or siting live-in vehicles. Later in the day when people are leaving site this team will assist with directing vehicles towards the exit.
Greeting audience members as they leave the car park and exchanging their ticket for a festival wristband. This role also involves providing basic site information to the audience and directing them to the correct area of the site, either campsite or arena entrances.
Timber Festival has a waste management team who will take responsibility for the majority of waste removal on site. However volunteers are needed to help with litter picking patrols and monitoring waste bins (replacing full bin bags for fresh ones) particularly around food vendor areas at peak eating times. This role will involve a lot of walking during shift.
