Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival

Colston Hall, Bristol Thursday 15th - Sunday 18th March

Volunteering for the festival is a great way to support your local Jazz & Blues community. It’s a great chance to meet new people and be part of the centre of everything that we do. As a volunteer, tasks could involve selling merchandise, moving stage and sound equipment, helping at the info desk, or even helping organise the limited parking for artists and bands!

Perks of volunteering

  • Access to concerts*.
  • Supporting the Bristol and international Jazz and Blues communities.

  • Free crew t-shirt (to be worn on shift).
  • Light refreshments when you’re working.

*Subject to availability, when not on shift.

We are looking for volunteers who can commit to approximately 10hrs work during the festival. This will be split into two shifts, one evening and one daytime.


The earliest we will need help is Thursday morning and then throughout the festival until late Sunday evening.

The festival takes place in Colston Hall, however we also work with other venues such as the 02 Academy and The Folk House.
