London Handel Festival - Volunteer

© Chris Christodoulou

Please help us by volunteering your time and skills, or by hosting a musician in your home.

For most of our events, we need a team of volunteer stewards who help to make our audiences feel welcome, check tickets, direct people to their seats and sell programmes. We are looking to recruit volunteers for future Festival events who are confident, friendly and enjoy interacting with the general public. In return, you will get to enjoy the music and meet like-minded enthusiasts whilst supporting a great charity.

There are other specific year-round volunteering opportunities also available, including help with social media, general administration or concert logistics. If you have a particular skill to offer, we would be delighted to hear from you. For example, if you can spare an hour or two each week, and are active on Twitter/Facebook, we need your help to update our relevant pages and post promotional information – we have a full social media plan, but just need people to help us roll it out. We also need volunteers to help with office administration and logistics, so if you love music and are curious to find out how it works ‘behind the scenes’, or if you are looking to get into arts management but need some relevant experience, please do get in touch.

In addition many of our musicians are looking for hosts who can provide free accommodation within easy travelling distance of central London. This is a perfect way to welcome a musician into your home, and it is a wonderful and rewarding experience for everyone!

If you would like to get involved, and to find out more about anything described above, please contact Harry Palmer, Festival Assistant by email at boxoffice@londonhandelfestival.org.uk. Thanks in advance for your interest.
