As the Bath Festival approaches, we are looking for enthusiastic book-lovers to help run our Mr B’s pop-up festival bookshops across the city.

The Bath Festival will take place between Friday 17th May and Sunday 26th May, during which Mr B’s will run a festival bookshop in the Assembly Rooms. We’ll also be selling books at individual venues around central Bath including the Forum, the Masonic Hall and the festival’s Literature Lounge on Alfred Street.

We are looking for volunteers to help out with book displays, to serve customers and assist with moving boxes of books to the various festival venues. No experience is necessary; you just need to love books and be happy to chat to customers. This will be a great opportunity to get a taster of life as a bookseller and to experience the festival behind the scenes, as well as a chance to watch bits of events and meet a few authors.

The volunteer shifts run throughout the festival. Ideally we are looking for volunteers who are able to do several shifts (although not necessarily on the same day). If you’re interested in joining our volunteer team, please click the button below and fill out our form.
