News and stories News New festival volunteering opportunities The Arches-Worcester festival team are looking for volunteers to help bring the city’s brand new festivals to life in 2020. Enthusiastic and approachable volunteers, eager to get stuck in with every element of staging unforgettable events are being sought by the new festival team. No experience is necessary, applicants just need to be over 18, energetic and enjoy meeting and helping others. David Edmunds, festival director said: “Our volunteers will be a really important and integral part of our festivals, helping to make sure everything runs smoothly and that everyone who comes along to take part has a fantastic time. There will be a lot to do from dressing the festival site and collecting feedback to meeting and greeting visitors and looking after information points - all hugely important tasks for the success of our festivals.” Volunteers are required in the first instance for the lead up to and on the night of Light Night Worcester, the first of the 2020 festivals. Light Night, with a programme of stunning light installations, music and performances, is taking place across the city centre on Thursday 16 January from 5.30 - 10pm.
