The festival is also recruiting volunteer ushers to assist with events, check tickets and help show people to their seats.  It is a great opportunity to enjoy festival talks and evidence community engagement on your CV.

Volunteers are particularly needed for talks on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 April. If you, or someone you know, would like to find out more about volunteering, email with the day or days you are able to help.
