Would you like to be part of an exciting event? Are you interested in the arts? Keen to meet others who share your interest? Why not join the Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival 2019 team as a volunteer.

There are lots of ways you could get involved. Gain experience of working with artists, see what goes on backstage, learn about promoting a festival and make new friends.

Festival Director, Linda Lewis, says: “There are opportunities to develop your experience and skills through the training we give which may open the door to new work opportunities, as it did for me forty years ago,” Linda remarks. “In 2015, we had student volunteers who have since gone on to work in the arts and returned to help us in 2017.

You get to meet the artists and see what goes on backstage. This is a perfect introduction to other jobs in the theatre, such as stage management, set design, production, lighting and sound.

The volunteers have the opportunity to make new friends who have similar interests.”
