BE PART OF THE BEST FESTIVAL STEWARDING TEAM IN THE UK.
The importance of stewards and volunteers to Shindig Festival.
Shindig Festival recognizes the importance of volunteer stewards and stewarding teams. Noting that without volunteers most UK festivals would not be able to operate. Furthermore the festival team believe the stewards and volunteers form the biggest part of bringing the festival together and keeping the festival safe and friendly.
With this in mind for 2023 Shindig Festival is creating a fairer, more fun and more inclusive approach to the volunteer and stewarding programme. Creating better opportunities for volunteer and paid stewards alike. Also breaking down the barriers that often stop people volunteering. Shindig is doing this through creating deposit payment plans and myth busting the fears around volunteering.
With new steward volunteering incentives and a longer term approach to creating the best ever steward experience. Of course the key to this is YOU. Without you we cannot deliver the best festival stewarding team in the UK.
