Do you love comedy, theatre, cabaret, music and magic? Do you love York? Do you thrive in a team and have a wicked sense of humour?

Then we need you!

Every year The Great Yorkshire Fringe is supported by our dedicated team of volunteers to keep the front of house running smoothly, getting bums on seats in the right place at the right time, directing 'little Jonny' to the 'little boys’ room' and his parents to the bar! It’s all-important work and we worship the ground these fantastic volunteers walk on.

We also give them a benefits package including ticket discounts, food and drink and of course the coveted Blue GYF T-shirt!

Volunteers should be 16 and over, available to work multiple 4 hour shifts between the 18th and 28th of July.

If you are thinking about a career in the arts, want a taste of how a festival happens from the inside or simply have spare time on your hands and fancy joining this lively team then please register your interest by saying hello to me on

Lots of our team come back year on year and those that don't have jetted off to even bigger festivals and jobs across the world! So whether it's for work experience or just because you love the fringe, or Parliament Street, come and join us!

I look forward to welcoming you to the team!
