Volunteering at Henley Literary Festival:

The 2022 Festival takes place from Saturday 1st October to Sunday 9th October at venues across Henley-on-Thames, with 130 talks, Q&As, workshops and performances for adults and children.

Volunteers are a vital part of our Festival, assisting venue managers to ensure the smooth-running of the events. Days are divided into morning and afternoon sessions. During these shifts you may be required to help with any of the following: welcoming audience members, assisting the audience with any queries, scanning e-tickets, assisting with book signing queues, laying out sponsor materials, and assisting the venue manager with any other tasks.

When volunteers do not have a shift, they are welcome to use their badge to sit in any events (that are not sold out).

Dress code:

The dress code for all volunteers is smart casual. You will be provided with a lanyard and volunteer t-shirt which should be worn at all times during shifts. Please state which size t-shirt you require on the sign-up form.
