We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.
Please note, organisations are currently experiencing a large volume of enquiries from people looking to help out. They may not always be able to meet this demand so please be patient, you may not receive a quick response or be assigned to a role.
There are opportunities for volunteers across every aspect of the Festival’s work including as Front of House ushers. Front of House volunteers welcome audience members to concerts, check tickets and show people to their seats and also to allocated spaces for wheelchairs. They may also sell programmes and distribute other printed information. The time commitment to each event is approximately one to two hours.
St Magnus International Festival takes place around midsummer each year and is a multi-arts festival with music at its core. The Festival is highly regarded on the international arts circuit and presents some of the best in the world in Orkney. The Festival works across the Orkney Islands and frequently creates projects which work throughout the year. The Festival is run by a core professional team with huge support from volunteers who deal with everything from stewarding to box office, technical crew to transport and hospitality. The Festival also promotes many projects which involve volunteer performers ranging from the Festival Chorus to theatre performances and opportunities for local performing groups from all art forms.
