Why volunteer with us?

“Meeting people and working with people of all ages and interests. [I loved] meeting artists, learning more about myself and others, the arts and the local area.” 2019 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.

“It’s a privilege to be part of the festival. It’s fun, interesting and gives me access to events I would not have necessarily have chosen to attend individually. My fellow volunteers are always a joy too!”

“[I volunteered] because it sounded fun, I love the arts, and I wanted to get to know Norwich better and be part of something in the community”

“As a student, all the shifts I’d been given felt like extremely helpful work experience that would benefit me in applications after graduation (in which the work also happened to be fun!)”

“I have been given roles that have challenged me and engaged me beyond what I expected to get out of the experience. That has taught me a lot and let me exercise skills in a unique environment I wouldn’t normally get to work at, so thank you!”

“Knowing I have taken active steps to help people achieve something they couldn’t have done without the extra pair of hands was the most rewarding”

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts. Find out more about how you can support us, as an individual or as an organisation below.
