Volunteer Opportunities

We need you! - Magdalen Street and St Augustine’s Celebration Day Volunteers

We need volunteers from all backgrounds and with a wide range of interests and skills to help us prepare for and deliver this exciting community street celebration.

You could join us as a ‘General Volunteer’ on the day, helping to put up balloons and banners, giving out flyers, directing members of the public to different events, delivering messages and generally helping things go smoothly.

Or you might have a specific skill or hobby – could you help us make banners and bunting before the event, or help out at one of the music stages on the day? Or are you an experienced administrator or PR professional who could help us promote and deliver the celebration?

Whatever your interests, skills or background and however much time you are able to spare, we would welcome you're time!

Stall holders
Street performers
Social media volunteers
Committee members
