Welcome to the Festivals Team blog! This is a blog for all things Festivally at Oxfam: the Stewarding Team, the Campaigners, and the Festival Shops. 

Where to start…

Each year 5000 volunteers hit the fields of the UK's best festivals, to fundraise for and to engage people with, Oxfam's poverty-busting projects. Volunteering with the Oxfam Festivals Team is an innovative alternative to a monthly direct debit and is an exciting and enjoyable way to do your bit. We have been around for almost 20 years and last year we raised an incredible £1 million.

This blog will hopefully be the window into what joining Oxfam for a festival is really like (it's not all about mud and wellies you know…). It will feature; the fun, frolics and fancy dress and also where the various roles fit in to make the magic happen and the people behind this huge logistical operation! Check out our video for a taster of what's to come...

We are bounding into the festival season and will have lots to talk about over the next few months, but what we really want, is to hear from you. Yes, that's you, sitting there with your lovely cup of tea daydreaming of festivals to come, reminiscing about festivals past, or if you are just interested in finding out how Oxfam and festivals fit together.

So get in touch with what you'd like to see, your ideas, your pictures and your contact details if you'd like to be a guest blogger. Also please get cracking with your comments, we love to chat!
