Birmingham Weekender in Digbeth 4-6 October 2019
Volunteer Application Form
BIrmingham Weekender is back! This is Birmingham's largest free arts festival, produced by Culture Central, featuring over 100 events throughout the weekend. This year we are showcasing the vibrant arts scene in Digbeth. You can check out the programme on the website where you can also download the full brochure. Expect an exciting programme packed with new commissions, world premieres, roaming and pop-up street theatre, participative events and workshops, and much more, across the city-centre and beyond. From prestige arts organisations such a Birmingham Royal Ballet and CBSO to independent artists and family pottery workshops!

The success of the festival relies on fabulous volunteers to help with pre and post production, marketing and promotion, welcoming visitors and showing them whats on, running duties for organisers and artists plus monitoring audience numbers and evaluation. All you need is a flexible and positive outlook and be happy to speak to the general public.

Whether you have been involved before, or are new to Weekender, we would love to hear from you! Gain experience of arts events or just get involved and have fun!
