Why you should volunteer with Jabberwocky Market

Posted on Tuesday 18 August

Hello all,
As you may or may not know, we are holding a drop in meet and greet on Thursday for people to come chat with us and see if they would like to volunteer for the festival. Here are a few reasons why you might like to pop along and join our Jabber gang!


  • Meeting New People, whether that be artists, fellow volunteers or the general public, working with Jabberwocky Market can be a very social experience and a great way to make new friends with a shared interest in the arts.
  • Trying something new. Fancy trying your hand at manning the Jabbervan, writing reviews, or becoming a festival steward? We have many roles to suit those looking for something different and a great way to discover a potential new hobby.
  • Extending your existing skills. Are you a whizz with social media? Or perhaps you are a keen photographer? Whatever you’re skills, we are always on the look out for talented people willing to offer their expertise.
  • Adding to you CV. Whether you are a job seeker, student or looking for that all important experience needed for a career change, Jabberwocky is something unique and can be a valuable addition to any CV.
  • Assisting in the promotion of Darlington. Are you passionate about your local community? Fed up of people putting the town down? Volunteering as part of Jabberwocky Market helps promote the arts in the town and enables the continuation of the festival, because we massively depend on the generosity of our volunteers.
  • Seeing what goes on behind the scenes. For all you curious types,  volunteering with us gives you an insight to both the fun and sometimes manic world of festivals!
  • Last but not least, Experiencing some great theatre for free. Always a bonus!!
