Our volunteers are raring to go for the first Durham Fringe Festival

With the Festival almost upon us, we’ve decided to close applications to volunteer this year, and shift our focus to the festival itself. We’d still love to hear from you if you might be interested in volunteering with us in the future; please send us a message through our contact form if you’d like to hear about forthcoming opportunities when the time comes.

Here’s a flavour of the kind of roles we will always need help with:

  • welcoming visitors to Durham, helping them find their way around and providing advice on how to get the best Fringe experience
  • welcoming visitors to the venues/checking tickets/showing visitors to their seats
  • helping to run the Festival Visitor/Performer Hub
  • if you’re local – sharing your knowledge of the city
  • runners helping production staff, working in and between venues
  • technical staff assisting visiting shows in our venues
