Volunteers are essential to the safe running of Lancaster Jazz Festival - we really can't run it without them.
Behind the scenes during LJF it's a mad four days of running around, meeting people, troubleshooting and caffeine with the entire festival team mucking in from dawn to well into the early hours. The wonderful volunteers are the people that make it all happen and make sure that artists and audiences feel comfortable and that everything is running smoothy.
We need volunteers to help with audience management, to meet and greet artists, to help sell merchandise, to support our tech crews, to stop the festival team falling asleep and a million other things. There's no limit to how much or how little time you can volunteer and it doesn't matter if you have loads of experience or none at all.
We'll make sure there's breaks and cups of tea, loads of great music and we'll make sure no-one gets stuck on car park duty for more than an hour without loads of cake.
If you want to get your hands dirty at LJF14 please fill in the form here and we'll be in touch. On behalf of the entire festival team a massive thank you!
- Matt Robinson, festival director
