Take Part



A large group of NNF volunteers with their hands raised in the air.

Applications to volunteer at Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2018 will open in February. 

An amazing 129 volunteers helped us make Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2017 happen, completing 851 shifts and 3,609 hours! They got involved with everything from Spiegel Hosting, chatting to visitors under the Museum of the Moon, stewarding at the Garden Party, and getting to grips with a Virtual Reality Playground!

Volunteers are at the heart of our community, and the Festival could not take place without their enthusiasm and dedication.

Why volunteer with us?

“I liked the fact I was contributing to a festival that I have very much enjoyed through the years and that this is a wonderful event that takes place in my home city.” 2017 volunteer

Volunteering with us is a great way to explore your city and county, meet new people, build confidence, learn new skills, experience new things, contribute to the local arts scene and champion great international art and culture.

100% of 2017 volunteers said they would volunteer with us again.
