We're looking for volunteer campaigners to join us at Oxford's finest festival

Summer is well and truly here and the festival season is kicking off! As usual Oxfam campaigners will be at all the best festivals, getting their hands dirty and spreading the word about GROW- Oxfam's campaign for food justice.  

Towersey Festival will take place from the 23rd to 27th of August 2012 in Towersey, a small village near Thame, Oxfordshire. If you're passionate about making difference and want to help build a global movement for achieving food justice then festival campaigning could be right up your street. And as if the buzz of campaigning wasn't enough of an incentive itself, on top of it all there's a chance to enjoy the music and the festival atmosphere!  

Your role onsite as a Festival Campaigner will be to take the message of our GROW campaign out to the crowds. You'll be talking to festival-goers all over the site and encouraging them to join a movement for global food justice. 

To apply please email Sam Robinson srobinson@oxfam.org.uk for an application pack. Deadline for applications is 5pm Tuesday 31 July 2012.

Founded in 1965 in the beautiful village of Towersey the festival has been described as "amazingly laid back and yet a very exciting place to be". Enjoying great music, dance, spoken word, street theatre, visual art, film and song beneath huge blue skied days and stunning starlit nights couldn't be described as a bad way to spend an August bank holiday weekend. Find out more about Towersey and check out the line-up (Which includes the legendary Bellowhead) on the Towersey Festival website or check out the festival on facebook.

"It sounds like a cliché but it was a life changing experience. I had so much fun and met so many amazing people, but the life-changing bit was discovering what an amazing organisation Oxfam is. I'd only started campaigning a month before but I've never looked back" - Suzanne, Campaigner at Glastonbury 2007, 2010
