Volunteer In The #folkfestarmy

In 2014 we launched the #FolkFestArmy, with an unprecedented number of volunteers coming on board to undertake a range of roles at last year’s festival. As our free festival grows, so must the number of people that support it, and we need your support more than ever. If you would like to apply to volunteer please fill out the form at http://bit.do/vntr.

Play The Festival

We get hundreds of requests to play the festival every year, and can’t respond to everyone who contacts us applying for a spot. However, should you wish to enquire about playing the festival, please email paul@leighfolkfestival.com , we do listen to every submission.
