Festival Volunteers

Gain experience go behind the scenes and support the Festivals… become a Festival Volunteer

Cheltenham Festivals relies on enthusiastic and hardworking teams of volunteers to deliver its acclaimed programme. People of all ages, interests, backgrounds and walks of life generously give their time to help us make these festivals possible.

If you would like to gain behind-the-scenes insights into how the Festivals work, have the opportunity to attend fantastic events for free and would like to commit to volunteering full-time, see below for more information and to apply.

It was great meeting the other Festival volunteers, who are the most passionate, enthusiastic people I have ever met and I have definitely made some friends for life.
