Volunteer with Us

Our volunteers are our life blood and we rely upon them to support us in delivering events for The Bath Festival in May and Bath Children’s Literature Festival in September. The qualities we seek in our volunteers is a passion for the arts (especially music and literature) and a warm, friendly personality.

Why volunteer? To see arts events, meet a new network of like-minded friends, get experience in working at events and get into the festival spirit! But don’t take our word for it meet some of our wonderful volunteers.



“I started volunteering with the Bath Festival six years ago. I have leafleted, collected donations, stewarded and even carried out the role of artists liaison. I can honestly say I have enjoyed every minute of it. The opportunity to see so many fine musicians and writers is wonderful but for me the highlight is meeting so many different people – audience members, artists, fellow volunteers and of course the staff team

I really recommend volunteering with the festival. If you do you will be well supported, meet new friends, see terrific performances and be an important part of one of Bath’s cultural highlights. Go on do it!”



“I love reading and music, so volunteering at Bath Festivals gives me a wonderful opportunity to meet and hear great authors and musicians (my personal favourites have been Howard Jacobson and Tenebrae). It also provides a platform to meet new, like-minded, people in an exciting and vibrant atmosphere.”



‘I have been stewarding for Bath Festivals for over ten years and have loved every minute of it. You get to work with a dedicated and enthusiastic team and see some amazing authors as well. Because we are all volunteers, it means that we all want to be there. We all share a passion for the arts and this spills over into the stewarding roles we do. It can be tiring at times, but it is definitely worth it. I would thoroughly recommend becoming a steward. It is fun, exciting and always entertaining. It has been a real pleasure to work alongside the Bath Festivals team. They are friendly, approachable and really value us in our role as volunteers. Here’s to the next ten years!’
