“Want to have an amazing, music filled summer but you’re on a budget? Love meeting new people? Want to support a great charity? Then you need to volunteer for Oxfam. 

Me and Rebekah were volunteers at Womad festival, held at Charlton Park in Wiltshire. This world music festival has a super-chilled vibe with so much to do and see for people of all ages, it was a great first volunteering experience for us. We worked as stewards, we did three 8 hour shifts in exchange for free entrance to the festival, exclusive campsite and meal vouchers.”

  1. Hi ,my name is Paul and would love to be involved in volunteering at one of the Oxfam festivals. I have been to Glastonbury festivale back in the late 80s, early nineties and Womad to mention only a couple. I do enjoy the festival atmosphere in which I would like on this occasion the opportunity to be part of the organisation. I am very supportive of peoples needs with the work I have been involved in, as I currently work in mental health as an Occupational Therapist assistant. I also work well within a team and independently. I hope I would be a useful asset to Oxfam and look forward to your reply

  2. Hi my name is Cheryl. Last year I volunteered with Water Aid and worked at Shambala and Boomtown. I throughly enjoyed the vibe, meeting new people and I would love to work at a few festivals next year. I believe Volunteering for Oxfam will be as enjoyable and working for a brilliant charity. Thank you

    1. Hi Cheryl, thanks for your comment! Volunteering with Oxfam will allow you to gain crew access to the festival, meet lots of new people and but also help Oxfam raise money to help beat poverty for good. We hope to see you next summer! Thanks Zara
