Be part of the Tolpuddle Team
The Tolpuddle Martyrs' Festival relies on a fantastic team of volunteers. They do lots of different jobs from helping with the stages, checking on the toilets and showers, stewarding the
car park and the march and lots more. If you want to be part of the team that runs the 2017 Festival please let us know. For those who are prepared to muck-in and do a shift each day we offer free admission, camping or campervan tag, crew t-shirt and some food vouchers.
If you want to know more before applying then please contact: South West TUC on [email protected] or call 0117 947 0521. Closing date 30th April 2017. All applicants will be informed whether they have been successful or whether they are on the waiting list by mid-end of May. Do not worry about booking your passes until you have heard from us.
We expect stewards to be on site by 12 noon on Friday 14th July and not leave until 6pm on Sunday 16th July 2017. If you need to arrive later or depart earlier then please specify on your application.
