Volunteer at Harrow’s Under One Sky

summer_festival1Fancy doing something to help your community this summer? Why not volunteer at Harrow’s biggest cultural arts festival Under One Sky?

Following on from the success of the Olympic volunteering drive, Harrow Council is looking for people to help out the day before the festival, and on the day, for the following roles:

  • Festival setting up
  • Stalls support
  • Stewards
  • Performance, Activities and Stage Assistants
  • Carnival Parade support
  • Performance, Activities and Stage Manager Assistants
  • Feedback & Evaluation Interviewers
  • Programme distributors
  • Market Stalls
  • Information Point Assistants
  • Compares
  • General Assistants

Previous experience working on events is desirable, but the most important thing needed is enthusiasm and a willingness to get involved and make things happen.

Applicants must be 18 years old or over on 29th June 2013.

Up to 10,000 people are expected at Harrow’s premier open air festival which showcases local talent and is the chance for families and friends to come together and enjoy the rich diversity that Harrow has to offer. There’s something for everyone at this year’s festival with more than 100 acts and activities which will keep children and adults entertained throughout the day. The festival will also feature a carnival parade; food and craft stalls; open air cinema; outdoor pool; dance village and a funfair and children’s village.

Leader of Harrow Council, Councillor Thaya Idaikkadar, said: “Harrow’s residents have always traditionally been very community minded and volunteering for Under One Sky is a great opportunity to get involved with something which is inclusive for the whole borough. Voluntary work will look great on your CV and you will get to meet new people and enjoy the festival atmosphere for free. I hope our community will help us make this year’s festival bigger and better than ever before.”
