Open House Festival is a registered charity dedicated to regenerating the seaside town of Bangor, County Down. Our core element is the annual August Festival when around 140 events take place in a host of venues and locations throughout the town. This is supported by a year-round programme of concerts and special events, such as Sundown Market.
We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated and reliable volunteers to help us deliver the 2019 Open House Festival, and make it another resounding success for our town. The festival creates a vibrant, celebratory atmosphere in Bangor during August, with a range of free and ticketed events, including concerts, theatre, film, food & drink, books, comedy, artisan markets, talks and tours. Our small team depends on volunteers to help at many of these events, keeping our visitors happy and safe and ensuring they enjoy their festival experience to the full.
Because our volunteers are vital to the delivery of the festival, we have worked hard over the past few years to build a dynamic and inclusive volunteer programme. It’s important to us that Open House volunteers provide a valuable link between the festival and our audiences – but also that they have a great time doing so.
