Big Splash is one of Newport’s largest free, family events, run by The Riverfront Theatre and Arts Centre thanks to the support of local sponsors and volunteers. This year the festival takes place on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 July and will be jam packed with performances and shows across the city centre, from Friars Walk to Commercial Street to The Riverfront.
In order to make the festival a success once again The Riverfront are looking to recruit a team of enthusiastic and dependable people who can support the festival by volunteering a few hours over the two days. Depending on experience, skills and interests, volunteers will get involved in assisting with performances and set up, stewarding, distributing programmes, collecting audience feedback, helping the public with any queries and making the festival accessible to all.
If you are aged 18 and over, enjoy meeting new people, are confident in talking to the public, are enthusiastic about Big Splash and the arts and are proud and positive about the city of Newport, you are just who The Riverfront are looking for!
If you are interested in donning a Big Splash yellow t-shirt this summer (that you can keep!) and being part of bringing this fun and exciting event to the streets of Newport, you can find more information and an application form on the Big Splash website https://bigsplashnewport.com/whats-on/volunteer/. Alternatively pop into The Riverfront for a chat with a member of the team. Applications must be submitted by Sunday 23 June. Full training will be provided for successful applicants prior to the festival.
