Number of volunteers:7
Volunteers are involved in helping to set up the festival site; this will include constructing marquees, staging, site decoration and signage. The community festival will be taking place on Saturday 13h July and volunteers are needed to help and supervise various activities eg. tea tent, stewarding the bouncy castle, youth music stage etc. as well as providing support and assisting whenever needed. Volunteers will also need to help with the clearing up and taking down of the site at the end of the festival.
The Friends of William Clarke Park is a not-for-profit community organisation with a mission to improve a small green space (also known as 'The Patch') situated in the east of Brighton. They are dedicated to making the space a cleaner and safer environment for all local people to enjoy and to create events to bring the community together. Every year the Friends of William Clarke Park put on a summer community festival and need teams of volunteers to help!
Brighton is a vibrant seaside town, famous for its open mindedness and relaxed attitude. It is only 1 hour from London.
The accommodation is basic, and volunteers will be sleeping on site in small tents. You may need to share a tent with another volunteer. There will be basic cooking facilities, a fridge, electricity, water, etc for preparing meals. There will be toilets on site, but showers will be taken every couple of days at local families, so please be prepared to ‘rough it’ a bit! If you want 5* facilities this project isn’t for you!
Volunteers need to enjoy being outside (in all weathers, it can rain in July!), and be motivated to work as part of a team to create a beautiful and functional community event. Volunteers need to be prepared for basic facilities and some prior experience of camping is ideal.
