With Leeds and Reading Festivals just around the corner, a number of you have been in touch asking about travelling to and from the festivals.
If you're planning to use public transport when travelling keep an eye out for your info pack which will be posted out to you, as it'll include details about which stations to aim for and shuttle bus timetables to and from the festival sites.
If you're planning to drive to the festivals and can offer a lift to fellow volunteers, or if you're looking for a lift, please head over to our festival forums where you'll find volunteers chatting about lift sharing!
By sharing a lift, not only will your journey be cheaper by sharing travel costs but you'll have the chance to make new friends before arriving at the festival and most importantly do your bit for the environment by reducing your carbon footprint!
If you're yet to apply and would like to find out more about volunteering with us this summer please head over to our Leeds festival info pages! All of our volunteering places at Reading Festival have now been filled.
When volunteering with us you do need to pay a refundable security deposit.
If you've not volunteered at a festival before and you're wondering what it's like our festival FAQs are packed full of answers to the questions we're regularly asked, plus lots of handy hints and tips about volunteering at festivals.
If you'd like to chat with others who have volunteered with us before you can head over to our festival forum where you'll find both new and returning volunteers chatting about what it's like to volunteer at festivals, arranging to share lifts, asking and answering questions about volunteering at festivals...
If you're thinking about volunteering but not sure about doing it on your own don't worry, every year around half of the volunteers who join us do so on their own the first time and then return year on year to meet up with friends they've made volunteering!
If you'd like to see what volunteering is like you can head to our festival photo galleries where you'll find thousands of photos of our volunteers having an amazing time whilst volunteering with us!
If there is anything you'd like to ask or you'd just like to chat with us about volunteering, please don't hesitate to email or call the office or get in touch via one of our social channels!
See you at Reading and Leeds!
