CLOSED: Volunteer at Deptford Literature Festival


We’ve been overwhelmed by the number of applications we’ve recieved to volunteer at the festival. What a wonderful local community we have! Unfortunately we can’t accept any more volunteers, but please do come along to the festival – you can find the full programme here

Are you interested in being a part of a large and vibrant literature event? Volunteering at Deptford Literature Festival events offers a fabulous opportunity to immerse yourself in literature for a day.

We’d need volunteers to be available between 9am-6pm on Sat 16 March. You will largely be based at Deptford Lounge, although some events may take place at other locations locally. Duties will include managing ticketing, introducing events, dealing with enquiries, gathering feedback. You will also get to attend and take part in the sessions that you support.

We will hold an online volunteer briefing session on Zoom on Monday 4 March, 7-8pm. We ask all volunteers to attend this if at all possible as it will talk through your schedule for the day, and outline how we’d like you to support visitors.

Volunteers are provided with a Festival T-Shirt, a £30 travel and food stipend, and are offered a free ticket to our opening event soft soft.
