Warwickshire Pride is a fabulous annual celebration of LGBT+ life and culture. Taking place each summer at the Pump Room Gardens in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire Pride welcomes thousands of people. Visitors include many LGBT+ people, plus families and allies.
We are recruiting volunteers to help before and during Warwickshire Pride 2019, which is taking place on Saturday 17th August. Volunteering with Warwickshire Pride is a rewarding experience. Not only will you get to be part of the festival, you will also be learning and developing skills, being part of a supportive team, and of course helping it all to happen for the LGBT+ community.
All we ask for is a minimum of four hours volunteering on the day and in return we can provide you with a meal voucher, free refreshments (drinks, fruit, sweets, and even cake), two free ticket to the official Warwickshire Pride after party, and access to our Proud Volunteer activities.
Volunteer roles available include:
Stewarding. Helping visitors and guest by providing information on the event.
Artist liaison. Helping the backstage crew with the artists performing at Warwickshire Pride. This may include looking after the artists, setting up dressing areas and handing out artist accreditation passes.
Stage support. Assisting the stage manager in ensuring everything runs smoothly and on time.
Site set-up and clear-up. Helping to make the Pump Room Gardens look fabulous for the festival and making sure it’s all tidy at the end of the festival. This role may also include putting security barriers in place, assisting stallholders to their pitches, attaching banners and putting up signs.
Merchandise crew. Selling official Warwickshire Pride merchandise to visitors.
Fundraising crew. Shaking those charity collection buckets and helping us to raise important funds for next year’s Pride.
We will provide an induction and full training before you volunteer and one of our experienced volunteers will also support you on the day so that you are not thrown in at the deep end.
As a Warwickshire Pride volunteer, you will also be able to be part of our Proud Volunteer network. We don’t just ask people to volunteer their time and talents at the festival and then send them on their way. We’re like a family and keep in touch throughout the year. As part of the Proud Volunteer network you’ll be able to attend social events just for volunteers. We try to meet up monthly to do something fun or just simply catch up. It could be a night at a pub quiz or it may be a trip to the cinema, lazer quest, bowling or something equally fun. We also have a closed group on Facebook that is just for volunteers.
