Barnaby Volunteer Opportunities

Who can be a volunteer?

If you’re 18 years and over have a passion for Macclesfield, cultural events and want to gain first-hand experience of working at a festival we want to hear from you!

No experience is necessary but an interest in supporting local community events, enthusiasm and a positive attitude is a must!

As a Barnaby Volunteer you will:

  • Help make a local community festival happen.
  • Learn new skills and gain lots of hands-on experience to enhance your CV.
  • Meet new people and build networks.
  • Have an adventure!
