Although the festival runs from the evening of 6th until the early hours of the 11th September, we require Outlook volunteer to help between 5th and 12th of September. Most departments are split into SHIFT GROUPS to enable Volunteers to plan their trip before the specific shifts are sent out in August.
Shift Group A: Tuesday 5th – Friday 8th September
Shift Group B: Thursday 7th – Sunday 10th September
Shift Group C: Friday 1st – Tuesday 12th September
Departments without a Shift Group: Wednesday 6th – Monday 11th September
Please note, all volunteers are required to arrive on-site and be issued with their wristband/s the day BEFORE their first shift.
