Festival City Volunteers

Applications Open for Festival City Volunteers 2019!

Would you like to be part of a team that greets and assists visitors to the Edinburgh Festivals? We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join us in August 2019. Experience is not necessary, we will train you!

As part of the 2017 celebrations marking 70 years of Edinburgh as a Festival City, the Festival City Volunteers programme was born, with 40 participants from all over Edinburgh involved in welcoming and assisting visitors in August. In turn, participants gained training and developed confidence, experience and a range of skills. The project expanded in 2018 and returns again in 2019.

As part of your volunteering, we can offer ideas and support to help you to achieve your goals, whether you want to build new skills or interests, find a job or meet new people.

If you would like to know more about the Festival City Volunteers programme or if you have any questions before you apply, please contact us at or call 0131 225 0630. You can also find out more about the programme on our dedicated webpage here and on the Festivals Edinburgh website here.
