Volunteering at Between the Trees

Would you like to acquire genuine workplace experience and training?

Would you like to be a member of a fun and happy festival team at this lovely, small family friendly festival?

We’re looking for enthusiastic people, aged 18 or over, to join the Between The Trees crew.  The role involves helping and giving information to the festival goers at the event: it’s an important position, because you will be the main point of contact between the festival and the public, so we need happy, smiley people!

We recruit people on a voluntary basis, but you will be well looked after!  Not only do you get a free festival ticket, but we provide 3 plant-based meals a day. The daily shifts are normally 4 hours, so you’ll have plenty of time to explore the festival

We would like you to attend at least one of the pre-festival team meetings if possible.

You are expected to arrive on site on Thursday, before the event, and camp for the whole of the festival weekend. There are proper toilets and showers. Food will be provided from Friday morning, so you will have to arrange self-catering or visit the local pub on Thursday evening.

    Where would you like to help?


    Green Team - We pride ourselves on sustainability and leaving no trace. You will be part of a dedicated team, which will work to ensure people are recycling correctly and to leave the site as we found it.

    Creative Team - This team will be supporting our many workshops and craft activities, assisting families throughout the weekend. This role will give you experience of working with people of all ages alongside experienced creatives.
