Barnaby Volunteers 2021

Macclesfield Barnaby Festival is a volunteer led festival. It is the enthusiastic, hardworking and creative people who live in and around Macclesfield that make our festival happen.

We are keen to hear from people wanting to volunteer throughout the year. We have a number of ways you can make regular commitments to the festival or get involved in specific events.
