Volunteers needed Well it has certainly been a strange 12 months. We were delighted with the success of our mostly on-line Fringe last year. This year we are expecting to have some on-line events but are also hoping to have a number of live events. We will be following government guidelines and are keeping our fingers crossed that the planned lifting of restrictions has happened by the start of Fringe. (7th July)
This year we anticipate that we may need more volunteers than usual so are hoping to put together a Fringe Volunteer Team that we can call upon for help – volunteers must be 16 or over.
Our Fringe Information Desk will be open from 7th to 25th July, between 10am and 7pm in our NEW LOCATION – at the end of the the Pavilion Gardens Conservatory in the former bar area. This is the hub of the Fringe which contains latest events information, daily listings, reviews, venue details, merchandise, extra information and publicity from the performers.
The areas we may need help are:
The Fringe Information desk – The exciting hub of everything Fringe – helping Customers and Performers with queries. Keeping information, flyers and posters up to date etc.
Stewarding for Fringe Sunday and other outdoor events.
Decorating the town
Possibly being invited to steward by performers at a venue/pop up event.
Fringe shift times are:
10am – 1pm and 1pm – 4pm or all day 10 – 4pm.
The Fringe Desk needs a compliment of Volunteers and Managers at all times – especially around 1pm (to cover shift changeovers) so lunch hours are staggered between 12 and 2pm.
You will be provided with an orange Fringe T-Shirt to wear when working with the Fringe.
If you are interested in helping the Fringe this Summer please email the Desk Manager, Gaye Chorlton, at email@example.com for more information.
Your email will be kept by the Fringe Desk Manager and when an opportunity arises the Fringe Volunteer team will be emailed with details of what is required and the contact emails/phone numbers. We will not pass on your details.
We look forward to hearing from you!
