***WE’RE VERYGRATEFUL FOR THE HUGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE OFFERED TO VOLUNTEER AT BATH FESTIVAL WITH US! WE’VE CLOSED THE ENTRIES FOR THIS YEAR, AND WILL BE IN TOUCH WITH THOSE WHO HAVE CONTACTED US VERY SOON***

As the Bath Festival approaches, we are looking for enthusiastic, book-loving volunteers to help out alongside our Mr B’s booksellers at pop-up festival bookshops across the city!

The Bath Festival will take place between Saturday 14th May and Saturday 21st May. We’ll be selling books at individual venues around central Bath including the Assembly Rooms, Walcot House and the festival’s Literature Lounge.

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.
