Felixstowe Book Festival needs YOU!
We simply couldn’t run the festival without our wonderful volunteers, and we’re always thrilled to hear from anyone wanting to lend a hand, whether that’s during the festival weekend itself or in the run-up to it.
There are lots of fun ways to get involved with the festival, from spreading the word via social media, to manning the information desk and selling tickets during the weekend. Most of our volunteers get the chance to move between roles over the weekend, so you’ll get an idea of all that’s going on at festival HQ! There’s no minimum commitment, so even if you can just spare an hour to help out we’d be grateful for your support. Plus, if you are on the door at an event, there’s the added bonus that you get to attend it for free! (this excludes workshops and vintage tea parties).
The other vital role that our volunteers play is in helping to promote the festival in the lead up to it. In the weeks preceding the festival weekend, we need help with the distribution of our flyers and posters, so if you’re able to take on some deliveries for us we’d love to hear from you! As a relatively new organisation, we’ve been overwhelmed by the local support that we’ve received in our first three years, but we’re always looking for new ways to promote the festival in Felixstowe and beyond – so if you’ve got any suggestions for new outlets or marketing opportunities for us, do get in touch!
