It's National Volunteer Week and we need you! image

National Volunteer Week kicks off today (01 - 07 June 2015) and to celebrate we’re looking for volunteers for Edinburgh Festival Carnival and Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival.

We can offer you a fantastic learning experience that is lots of fun, and the opportunity to make valuable contacts. Volunteering with us is also a brilliant opportunity to experience music from all around the world and work with a fantastic team.

Edinburgh Festival Carnival

Costume wearers

If your idea of a good time includes dressing up in a carnival costume and dancing around town with puppets, and live music we’ve got the perfect role for you with Edinburgh’s biggest international city centre party, Edinburgh Festival Carnival. We’ve got hundreds of flamboyant costumes and now all we need are volunteers to wear them in the parade.

Interested? Email for more information.


Would you like to gain experience in outdoor events? This is a great opportunity to experience behind the scenes of a carnival, work with international artists, assist professional events staff and have a really exciting, fun filled day. There are just a few roles that need to be filled: Assistant Stage managers, Artist Liaisons and Carnival advoctaors

If you’re interested in production volunteering with the carnival please email for more information.
