Volunteer at LightNight 2017

LightNight 2017 is taking place on Friday 19 May and Open Culture are looking for a team of amazing volunteers who are passionate about the arts to help out on the night.

If you want to gain experience working in the arts and fancy being part of one of the biggest nights in Liverpool’s cultural calendar, then we want to hear from you!

Why volunteer?

Co-ordinated by Liverpool non-profit organisation Open Culture, LightNight gives the local arts community a platform to create a varied programme of arts and cultural activity concentrated into a single evening.

Volunteering at LightNight is a great way to learn more about delivering arts events and get useful work experience for your CV. We’re looking for confident, cheery sorts who are enthusiastic about arts and culture, enjoy talking to new people and are willing to be an ambassador for LightNight and Open Culture.


We’re looking for volunteers to work across three areas on the night:

– Selling LightNight festival guides and merchandise
– Filling in audience surveys
– Helping out with specific LightNight events

We are also looking for a Volunteer Coordinator – this role involves organising, briefing and looking after the team of volunteers before the festival and on the night. The Volunteer Coordinator needs to be available for approx. 15 days from 3 April – 31 May 2017.

For more information about these areas and the responsibilities involved, read the full volunteer brief here.
