Local Arts organisation, Lichfield Arts, is appealing for new volunteers from the local community to help out with the wide range of events it presents. The non-profit making organisation, which has charitable status, puts on over 40 concerts a year in the Guildhall as well as Lichfield Real Ale Jazz and Blues festival, Fuse, Lichfield Roots and Folk Festival and Lichfield Winter Beer and Wine Festival.
To put on all these events a huge range of skills are needed from stewarding, selling tickets and helping with staging at the Guildhall concerts through to helping with the organisation and running of the festivals. Lichfield Arts are looking for people who enjoy working as part of a team, enjoy meeting members of the public and are happy to work in situations that can get busy.
Lichfield Arts Director, Brian Pretty, said “Whilst we do have a very hardworking, dedicated team we welcome new volunteers. We are a friendly bunch, the work is rewarding and can even be fun at times! We would be particularly delighted to have more young people come forward and join us.”
Lichfield Arts say that the Fuse festival is in particular need of more volunteers. Tim Perks, Fuse Director, said “As Fuse grows every year we need more and more volunteers. This year, along with the need for people to take on general duties, we are particularly looking for people to join the organising team to help with fundraising, managing particular events at Fuse and publicity. Becoming a volunteer can add a new dimension to your social life and can even enhance your job prospects”.
