Volunteer Form

The Big Retreat Wales wouldn’t happen without its great collection of Volunteers!

We are looking for like-minded, can-do folk to help us in 2018. If you would like to be involved, please complete the following form.

Our Festival Makers will find themselves on a varied rota of duties - at the Gate, directing people from the Car Park, helping on the set up of the Campsite and pack down, picking litter, preparing the workshop and classroom zones every morning and between classes, (dare we say cleaning toilets & showers) as well as helping out on the bar and generally making sure fellow #bigretreaters are able to relax and enjoy the Festival.

When completing the form please highlight any areas of experience you have in any of the above. Festival Makers  will be ‘on shift’ for a maximum 6 hours per day (probably less on Friday/Monday) though flexibility is much appreciated.

Each Festival Maker receives a full Weekend ticket including access to classes & workshops when not on duty, (though some classes will have to be on Standby) plus Camping for all three nights (bring own tent).  Food and drink - you can bring your own to cook up on campsite when not on shift or enjoy staff discount rates at the Food & drink vendors on site.

We ask for a £60 deposit from all Festival Makers that will be refunded once you have completed your shifts. Money is returned via bank transfer / PayPal within a week of the end of the festival.

Please note - if you are accepted, we will require a £60 deposit that we will refund one week after the Festival
