About festival shop volunteering

Helping to run Oxfam's on-site festival shop is a really fun way to volunteer, but it is also hard work and requires volunteers to undertake certain responsibilities.

Festival shop volunteers will need to:

  • help set up the shop the day before the festival opens

  • attend the pre-festival briefing onsite

  • work 3-5 shifts throughout the festival

  • sort, price and display stock

  • provide customer service to festival-goers and handle cash

  • help pack up the stock, shop fixtures and fittings after the festival


Benefits

Volunteering at an Oxfam festival shop offers a lot of benefits for you:

  • Fun - it's a great way to meet like-minded people and experience festivals in a new way. Many return year after year

  • Free entry to the festival. 

  • Meal vouchers and - at some festivals - hot showers. Need we say more.
