Without volunteers, no Fringe Theatrefest. It's as simple as that.

Fringe Theatrefest is about a whole variety of people and institutions coming together to make something extraordinary happen. And the volunteers are the lifeblood of the whole enterprise.

Volunteers supervise the venues, run the venue box-offices, help with the technical side, assist with publicity and are the warm and welcoming public face of Fringe Theatrefest.

They also have an important role to play in building and maintaining the profile of Fringe Theatrefest in North Devon.

The primary "reward" is being part of an exceptional team and having a major impact on the development of an exciting event. There are also free tickets for shows to be earned (one ticket for each 3-hour shift).

This year we had funding from the Celebrate England Big Lottery Fund that enabled us to invest even more in our volunteers. We paid for 14 volunteers to become First Aid trained and were able to offer training for working with young people and vulnerable adults along with appropriate certification.

If you want to find out more about being part of the team that makes Fringe Theatrefest the wonderfully exciting event that it is, then please e-mail us at ndfringe@hotmail.com or contact us via the comments form.
