Volunteers wanted for Sunflowerfest 2012

SUNFLOWERFEST 2012 will be upon us very soon and event organisers are seeking volunteers to work at this year’s event.

The festival is offering people of all ages the chance to work across all aspects of the festival in return for a free weekend pass and a big tick on the CV.

Volunteer roles include festival helpers, who fill in the cracks. They do the details that make sure Sunflowerfest is easy and fun and safe for all festivalgoers. This is all over the festival – at the tent areas, all the venues/performance tents, workshops, the gate, fire exits … and everywhere in between.

Sunflowerfest takes place in Tubby’s Farm in Hillsborough. There are fields and paths and woodland areas that the festival will be using for public access and we need to make this space beautiful and safe and ready for the festival. Can you help?

This year Sunflowerfest aims to make this a bonanza weekend for families – kids and ‘big’ kids alike. Remember what it was like to be a kid – freedom, fun and friendship! Find your inner child. Join in the fun and help make Sunflowerfest the festival you want it to be!

Calling all magicians, circus performers, clowns, acrobats, artists – anyone who has a unique and quirky talent who loves strutting their stuff and making people laugh, Sunflowerfest need volunteers to help supervise the kiddie’s activities. There will be a dedicated Kidz Zone and various events and workshops taking place all around the festival, which will require constant supervision and stewarding by volunteers.

Sunflowerfest 2011 Volunteer, Aine McKerr said, “Volunteers get free camping - food vouchers, the chance to check out the rest of the festival when your shift is finished. I just love it. I always enjoy myself volunteering. I love music and if I can help out to make things run smoothly then I’m there. I’ve made great friends through volunteering. I’ve even met some of my favourite artists. You never know who you’ll bump into!”
