Search for Christmas Light Festival volunteers

Published: Friday, 21st October 2016

Oxford City Council is searching for enthusiastic volunteers to help make this year’s Christmas Light Festival the best ever.

The festival, which takes place between Friday 25 and Sunday 27 November, will see Oxford transformed with even more cultural activities and art installations than previous years.

The City Council, which organises the festival, has a number of volunteering opportunities across the following areas: lantern procession steward, artist liaison, information provider, public opinion surveyor, artistic installation assistant, area assistant and crew assistant.

Volunteers must be over the age of 16 and can help with just one shift, or across all three days. No specific training is required, but some roles may be more physically demanding than others.

The experience is an opportunity for people to develop skills and understand what it is like to help at one of Oxford’s most popular cultural events.

An information session will be taking place at Oxford Town Hall on Wednesday 16 November between 5pm and 7pm. Volunteers will be given all the information they need to be prepared for the festival and will have the opportunity to meet the festival team and other volunteers.
