We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers to work at this year’s Dorchester Literary Festival.
The festival runs from 18th - 22nd October 2017, and features a host of prominent writers, poets and political minds.
As a volunteer, you’ll be allowed free entry to all of our events (subject to available space). You may also have the chance to meet some of the authors and we’ll provide refreshments throughout your shifts.
Volunteer work looks great on the CV, and we’re happy to give references if you want. The work is not difficult, but is essential to the smooth running of events. You might be responsible for ticket-selling, ushering, dealing with enquiries from the public, assisting authors and publishers, or set moving and cleaning.
This year we are looking for volunteers who can work a minimum of two shifts.
If you’d like to apply to be a volunteer, please complete and submit the online form by Friday 22nd September.
Thank you for allowing me to be part of this great event. Well done to both of you, fantastic event.
Thank you very much for having me to the festival and making me feel so welcome.
We really enjoyed the talks we attended... and look forward to next year's event... Kate Adie was brilliant
Kate Adie's Desert Island Books was thoroughly enjoyable! I had no idea she was (a) so glamorous and (b) so delightfully funny.
I don't think you could improve on the experience! Good luck with your plans for 2017 and I wish you all the very best.
William and I had a very interesting and often hilarious time putting (our presentation) together – fortunately we both wanted to be thoroughly prepared, so we refined and refined… we enjoyed ourselves, aided and abetted by the helpfulness of you and yours behind the scenes, the warmth of the audience, and the pleasantness of the setting. Speaking at your festival was an altogether happy experience. I only wish I had managed to organise listening to many of the other talks, which I really wanted to do… Many congratulations to you and all your team, and all wishes for Festival no. 3!
