Get Your ArtBeat Festival Programme

ArtBeat programmes

The ArtBeat Community Festival is coming up quickly and the programmes will be dropping through your letterbox this week. They will also be available from Knighton Library on Clarendon Park road and some of the venues from midweek.

Pick one up and start planning the free events that you want to go to at the festival.

Volunteer at ArtBeat 2017

ArtBeat is rapidly approaching, it runs from Friday 16th June to Sunday 25th June, and we’re looking for volunteers to help at events.

You can volunteer for one event, one day, one weekend or even the whole festival – whatever fits into your life. Most events are at weekends and it should be a lot of fun.

We hold events in a variety of venues, such as pubs, restaurants, church halls, outdoors, and private houses. We have music (of all types), dance, film, literary and comedy events, as well as architecture, history, and other cultural subjects. We expect to hold about 40 events.

Your duties would be:

  • to provide information including directions, facilities, and performances and to help festival goers, eg assisting disabled people.

  • to help team members to set up the venue

  • to greet the audience on arrival, to check tickets of those arriving (for ticketed events)

  • to engage with the public to complete questionnaires

  • to help to clear the venue at the end of the performance

  • to assist in arts and crafts activities

  • to work with the event manager to ensure emergencies, medical, fire and security issues are dealt with promptly and safely

  • to be proactive and alert to any potential problems eg a build-up of litter or faulty facilities, to help to prevent overcrowding and be on hand to monitor crowd safety

If you are interested please contact us with the dates and times that you are available. If you have any preferences for type of venue or type of event, then let us know. Have a look at www.clarendonpark.net to see previous programmes.

We look forward to hearing from you. The festival cannot go on without you, and we think you’ll enjoy it.
