Volunteering

Everybody’s Reading needs you…

Applications for volunteers 2018, NOW OPEN – Email us!

Everybody’s Reading provides anyone and everyone the chance to attend an event and get involved with reading. We need an enthusiastic team of book lovers to help keep things ticking over for 9 days…

We need volunteers to help in the run up to the festival and to be a positive and friendly presence during the festival.  Every year our volunteers help us to gather feedback which is essential so that we know:

  • what worked and what didn’t
  • what people want from future festivals
  • how we can keep on improving year on year

And, of course, we need to ensure that we really do reach into the heart of Leicester’s communities and bring a unique benefit to the people of the city so we can advocate for the future of the festival.

Some tasks that volunteers can help with are:

  • Marketing and distribution including online and print communications
  • Stewarding at performances
  • Supporting festival events
  • Representing the festival at schools, with delegates and to the public
  • Getting feedback and evaluating the festival

PrintVolunteers will be invited to an informal briefing session. To find out more or to register your interest, email us at everybodysreading@sdsa.net or call 0116 299 5978 and ask for Tiffini or Sophie if you have any questions.

Once you get in touch we’ll ask you to complete a short form to find out a bit about you.

We look forward to hearing from you and to you being part of the team getting Everybody Reading in Leicester this Autumn.
