Young Volunteers wanted to help with this summer's Hereford Three Choirs Festival

It would be impossible for all the concerts, rehearsals, talks, walks and more that comprise the Three Choirs Festival to run smoothly without the help of a Festival Operations Support Team: there will be venues to be set up, chairs and other furniture to be moved, visitors to be welcomed, information sheets to be handed out, programmes to be sold, events requiring attendants, car-parks to be staffed, endless errands to be run . . . . . and all with a smile!

We are now recruiting Young Volunteers to join our team.

The main period when the Festival Operations Support Team will be needed is Friday 24th July – Saturday 1st August, but some helpers will be wanted during the preparation, starting on Sunday 12th, and for the tidying up afterwards until (and probably including) Tuesday 3rd August. So we may be able to use people who are only available for odd days here and there.

We also need a separate team of Young Volunteers to help with our concerts in Leominster on Wednesday 29 July.

Those helping on the Festival Operations Support Team will have the status of volunteers, but will receive expenses up to £17.50 per day towards the cost of transport and food during the day.

Training will be given, depending on the nature of the tasks volunteers will be undertaking. There will be a general training and team-building day on Monday 20th July.

To apply, you must be 16 or over, and under 25, on 11th July 2015.

In theory, we will accept applications up to the end of May; but in practice the application period may close as soon as we have recruited the appropriate number of suitable people.

NB Members of the main TCF Chorus may apply, but during the festival week they will only be available for the team when not rehearsing / performing in concerts.

Members of the TCF Youth Choir will not be available for the team during rehearsals from Tuesday 21st – Friday 24th, nor on Monday 27th until after the Youth Choir concert is over.
