Volunteer FAQs

You’ll commit to completing *roughly* 3 x 4-6 hour shifts across the festival from Thursday through to Monday. You'll need to pay a security deposit, which is refunded to you within 30 days after the festival, once you have completed your shifts. 

Please note, due to the nature of the programme at Love Trails Festival, your shifts may not be 4-6 hours long. For example, they could be broken up into 2 hours in the morning, and 3 hours in the afternoon. We ask volunteers to be flexible when signing up to volunteer. 

Volunteer shifts are hugely varied, and a lot of fun! Shifts may include: info point, route marking, ticket accreditation, welcoming guests, car parking, venue door staff, and so many more exciting roles across the festival site.

If you have a specific skill or experience you think might be helpful, let us know! 

We kindly ask for a (fully refundable) £100 deposit to secure your space as a volunteer. This is fully refunded after the festival, when you have signed in and out of your allocated shifts. 

We ask for a security deposit as a guarantee that you will show up and complete your shifts, and this allows us to make the best plans for a safe and enjoyable event. The deposit amount (minus the booking fee) will be fully refunded within 30 days after the festival takes place, subject to volunteers signing in and out of shifts. 

If you feel you are unable to secure the deposit amount right now, please get in touch and let us know. We do not want finances to be a barrier to volunteering, and are happy to waive deposits for those who need it most.

Yes! There will be plenty of time to enjoy the festival outside of your shifts, but we need volunteers to be flexible with their time until shifts have been allocated. 

We ask that volunteers hold off on booking any activities or trail races until the volunteer rota has been completed (approx. one month before). Otherwise, it gets very difficult to allocate shifts. Once the rota has been completed and you've been allocated shifts, you can log in to your Easol account at any time to book anything in the programme!

There are hundreds of talks, workshops, running experiences and activities that do not require pre-booking, and you can just show up to.

There is a lot of time and resources that goes into managing shifts and volunteers, so in the first instance, we'd kindly ask that you find someone to replace you.

We are unable to refund any volunteer deposits within two months of the festival. But we can try and support you as much as possible. If you really can’t make it, then we might be able to find a suitable replacement. 

Please get in touch as soon as possible by emailing crew@lovetrails.com
