Shout out for Volunteers at Grinagog Festival – Download the form here :-
Our first event of the year will be Grinagog Festival in Torquay. 7-9th April
This is the first year for Grinagog and without the help that is needed from volunteers the event probably wouldn’t be going ahead, the Production Team have been completely overwhelmed with the skills and goodwill that has been made available to us for the weekend. If you don’t know too much about the festival at present there is quite a bit of information here www.grinagogfestival.com . We have all the acts\venues booked & Torbay Council are taking a proactive and positive role in facilitating all the permissions required to ensure this is a truly ground breaking and great fun event for all concerned.
The majority of steward & volunteer involvement will take place in and around the Riviera International Conference Centre (RICC), Torre Abbey, Spanish Barn and the surrounding grounds, there’s marquees going up and everything! The Festival will be operating at other sites including One World, Pier Point and some of the night time business’ on the Harbourside, however steward involvement in these elements will be limited.
A Few Points To Consider Before Confirming your Place With Us
- You will need to complete 1 x 5 hr Shift in exchange for a weekend wristband
- This is an urban\indoor festival with co camping available, the festival is not providing accommodation or expenses for volunteers in this regard. Volunteers will need to make their own arrangements
- You will receive a Crew T Shirt for your shift.
- We ask for a reference, this is just to confirm your details and there will be no further contact with them after that, we send a short email advising that you have applied to do voluntary work with us and asking them to confirm that you are their employee that is all. If you do not have a current employer or do not wish to use them, we can suggest alternatives just let us know.
