We are always looking for willing volunteers to help out with our Events.


Events include things like our Literary Luncheons throughout the year and, of course, our Festival! If you would be interested in volunteering then please do let us know. Some volunteer roles include:


Distributing leaflets and programmes

Help distribute promotional leaflets and programmes in shops, libraries, waiting rooms, pubs etc in and around Sherborne and other towns and villages.


Putting up posters in your window or local shops

Could you put a poster advertising an event in your window, or know someone who could? Ask shops if they would put a poster or flyer in their window, to help support us.


Erecting event promotional signs

Put out signs for the festival around Sherborne and surrounding villages. These can be on the road side, buildings etc. Maybe you could put one in your garden? These must be collected straight after the festival as well.


Erecting event direction signs

Help put up signage around town to show where the venues are.


Stage, greenroom and seating stewards for events

We need people to make sure the stage, greenroom and reserve seats are taken care of during events. Jobs involve making sure the stage needs to have a fresh glass and water on the table; the greenroom needs to be kept tidy and stocked with refreshments; and reserved seats need highly guarded RESERVED signs on them!


Door stewards for events

Door stewards are needed for events to guide people to collect booked tickets at the desk, or ask them to move straight through to the venue if they already have tickets. We also need volunteers to take the tickets and make sure that no-one goes through to the venue until the door is officially open.


Managing the Festival ticket desk

We need volunteers to manage the ticket desk as many people will be bringing along their confirmation emails to be exchanged for their tickets.


If you are interested in helping with any of the above, please contact us on 01258 821499 or email info@sherborneliterarysociety.com
