Working as a volunteer for Cheltenham Festivals is a fantastic experience. It’s great to feel you’re making a useful contribution to the running of the Festivals which are such a vibrant part of Cheltenham’s cultural scene. Volunteering provides a fascinating ‘behind-the-scenes’ view of how the Festivals work. You can experience a wide range of different jobs and meet interesting people, both fellow volunteers and event participants. You always feel welcomed by a supportive, friendly and appreciative team.
