Register your interest in helping create lifelong memories and experiences by volunteering at a Council-produced event.

Get involved with your community by supporting local events or programmes like New Year's Eve, Sparks, Summer Theatre or Culture Galore and other larger city-wide events. Our volunteers are crucial to making these programmes and events happen.

Volunteering is a great way to get involved with the events you love. Volunteers are needed on a case-by-case basis for specific events to help with setting up, preparing activities and assisting the event organisers.

Volunteers can be individuals or groups depending on the event, so please outline which events you would like to take part in and at what capacity.
