Join volunteers at Derby Book Festival

Would you like to get more involved with Derby Book Festival in 2018?

The festival is run almost entirely by brilliant volunteers and the organisers could not function without the many people who offer their free time.

They oversee the organisation of and support the events, plan the programme, liaise with authors and other contributors and seek the funding needed to pay for events.

“We have a group of enthusiastic volunteers who have supported the first three festivals, many of whom will be involved again this year, but we would love to have even more volunteers to help welcome and assist the people who visit our events,” said one of the team Sian Hoyle.

If you are reliable, friendly, interested in books and available to help out between June 1-9, they would love to hear from you.

“We do our best to involve everyone who applies, but due to programming and individual availability, we may not be able to include everyone in the rota,” she added.
