The Bristol Shakespeare Festival would be nothing without all of the incredible people that come together to bring it all to life. Whether you’re interested in volunteering or bringing a show, we’d love to have you on board!

Throughout July, we depend on enthusiastic and dedicated people to steward our performances as our core team of volunteers.

Roles include:

  • ushering audience members to seats (or guiding them around our outdoor venues)
  • operating the Box Office
  • selling any programmes
  • answering queries
  • overseeing general health and safety

Our volunteers are able to watch all festival performances free of charge, and gain valuable experience in working within a team.

If you’re interested in getting involved, contact our Volunteer Manager Richard, at to sign up or find out more!

Want to support the festival in another way?
As a festival proud of its Bristol roots, we are always happy to explore any partnership or sponsorship opportunities. Whether you’re a local business or an individual, we’d love to work with you!

The Committee

The Festival Committee is the team that brings the festival together. We work throughout the year, starting as early as September, to ensure that all aspects of the festival are taken care of. From producing to marketing to box office management to fundraising to partnership sourcing, we have a small but dedicated team who work tirelessly to bring the festival to life.

Although we have no roles currently available, we are always keen to hear from those who would like to bring their skills to our team or gain experience.
