Join the festival angels team

The deadline for volunteers to apply to be a festival angel has now passed. If you are interested in joining the team next year, please contact Moira Conlon on leedsfestivalangels [at] gmail.com

Volunteers are wanted to help respond to the needs of festival goers this August bank holiday weekend. 

Festival Angels is a Christian organisation, with one hundred and seventy volunteers who respond to the needs of the 85,000 people who attend Leeds Festival, one of the UK's major music events held at Bramham Park on the outskirts of Leeds.

This is a last minute appeal to fill up 15 spare places that are currently available. 

Since its launch in 2011, Festival Angels has continued to provide care and compassion through practical and spiritual support to festival goers. Volunteers will help by working in the following areas: a 24/7 Prayer Cafe which serves hot drinks and provides a safe and welcoming space for festival goers, the Lost Property Tent which helps reunite hundreds of items and owners, the setting up and packing down both before and after the festival.

In exchange for 20 hours of volunteering over the course of the week, volunteers will have access to: a staff campsite with hot showers, loos, a fully equipped kitchen and lounge chill-out marquee, staff rest areas, a minibus to transport you to the work areas from the staff car park, a Festival Angels T-shirt, a Leeds Festival wristband and the support and comradeship of the Festival Angels team.

Moira Conlon, Co-Director of Leeds Festival Angels, said, "For some 16 year olds, the Church can seem irrelevant, outdated and not for them. Through our Christian work at Leeds Fest, we get an opportunity to compassionately show young people the love of God and allow them to see that the Church is not a building, it is a community of people. 

"If we are able to just get some of the young people at the Festival to think differently about God through our words and practical deeds, then we are serving God and sharing his message."
