We’re looking for a team of dedicated stewards to help us run the world’s largest philosophy and music festival - HowTheLightGetsIn. If you would like the opportunity to hear some of the world’s leading thinkers, plus access to incredible live music, then we want to hear from you. In return for steward shifts, you get a festival pass which gets you access to all the festival’s incredible debates and events. Although we can’t provide food for staff, all stewards get a jammy discount at the festival eateries. On shifts, stewards help keep the festival tick - check tickets, man the doors of events and act as the first contact point for all our visitors. Shifts are full on and fast paced, but also very rewarding and the friends you make on the stewarding team are ones that last! Every steward can request a professional reference to document this valuable and varied experience for future employers.

Why should you get involved?

1. ACCESS. In return for their short daily shifts (typically between 5-6 hours), festival volunteers get a staff wristband giving them access to a whole range of debates, live music, film & comedy - not to mention insane discounts on the festival eateries and some of the visiting stall holders!

2. SKILLS & EXPERIENCE. Volunteering looks great on your CV and all of our volunteers can request a reference at the end of the festival for future employment. You’ll get to network with festival organisers and gain an insight into the behind-the-scenes running of a large-scale event.

3. FUN. The team is always diverse, welcoming and up for having a lot of laughs, as well as working well together to keep the festival ticking. A lot of our volunteers come back year after year to have reunions and see the same friendly faces they got to know their first year volunteering.
