Oxfam has been taking volunteers to festivals for 20 years; festival organisers donate to Oxfam for providing people to fulfil important roles. It's a fantastic way to give your time and enjoy some of the best UK festivals.
Whether you steward or help us raise awareness about our campaigns, you will be joining a family of thousands, united by a love of music and a desire to help others break free from poverty.
We'd be delighted to arrange for corporate teams to attend the same festivals together. We also look to fill some specialist roles including drivers, logistics coordinators and radio operators. Full training will be provided and there is even the opportunity to develop progress within the team as a supervisor, shift leader or festival coordinator.
