Calling all music and literary fans!
Louder Than Words Festival is back for a seventh festival in Manchester and we are on the look-out for volunteers to help deliver the weekend festival from Friday 8th – Sunday 10th November at The Principal Hotel, Manchester.
Featuring talks, workshops, in conversations, performances and panel discussions, this high quality literary festival celebrates words – oral, written and published – associated with the music industry.
We have a variety of exciting volunteer roles available:

You will be helping us to document Louder Than Words this year and you’ll get some great images and footage for your portfolio. You will need your own camera for this. You will be given an allocation of events you need to cover in advance of the Festival.
