• Volunteers

    Be part of a something inspiring!


    Help needed!

    The smooth running of the Festival relies on the work of a dedicated team of volunteers.

    Without these willing hands we simply could not function. Our pool of helpers is growing

    but the more we have the more we can spread the tasks and broaden our audiences.


    Are you interested in getting involved with a vibrant, enthusiastic team who are passionate

    about supporting the arts in the Richmond area? If so, why not become a steward at the festival?


    Volunteers are needed to:

    • To sell entrance tickets & programmes at the door on the day & ensure 
    • the festival runs smoothly and efficiently.
    • To check in the performers.
    • To announce the competitions and individual items.
    • To assist the Section Secretaries with the preparation of certificates & notices 
    • in advance of the Festival.
    • To set up the refreshment area and oversee the sales of light refreshments during the Festival sessions.
    • To organise the trophies for the Music sections.

    If you would like to help in any way or know of anybody who would be interested,

    perhaps a family member or former pupil, please contact Pam Frazer (tel: 020 8894 7929) or

    Judy Hildesley (tel: 020 8876 0321), any of the other Section Secretaries who will be delighted

    to hear from you or send us a message.
