Do Something Different This Summer, Volunteer

Culture Volunteers Poole are looking for up to 50 volunteers to assist at the spectacular launch event of the Inside Out Dorset Festival.

This much lauded and loved festival, produced by Activate, has attracted over 80,000 spectators since its inception in 2005. This year’s event will be held on 12 and 13 September at Poole Park near the Cricket Ground.

The launch event showcases CirkVOST’s ‘Boo’, a French aerial acrobatic company, who will perform outdoors atop a 15m high purpose built bamboo structure, with live musical accompaniment. This jaw-dropping and mesmerizing production is a must see for all the family.

Volunteers will be required to help with stewarding, marshalling, promotion and evaluation/feedback monitoring. Full training will be provided and travel/food expenses will be covered by the organisers.

Cllr Xena Dion, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for a Prosperous, Sustainable and Active Poole, Borough of Poole said: “We would always encourage people to think about volunteering across any sector as it not only helps communities but is a great way to add quality to their own lives. Inside Out Dorset is one of the best Arts Festivals in the South and will leave you with lasting memories. Get involved, you will love it!”

Donna Price, Culture Volunteers Poole Manager, Borough of Poole said: ‘We are very proud to be involved in the Inside Out Festival, the highlight of the summer season. Our volunteers gain so much from the experience. It is a great way to get involved in cultural events in our town whilst savouring an evening of exceptional entertainment.”
