What is Oxfam Festival Volunteering?
Oxfam Festival Volunteering is a fantastic way to attend your favourite festivals for free. To see some amazing acts. And make new friends. All while supporting Oxfam's work to end poverty around the world.
You can choose to be a steward and provide directions to the festival-going public, check wristbands, or patrol campsites and arenas. Or be a campaigner, engaging with the public about Oxfam's work. Or you can volunteer in one of our festival shops providing festival-goers with the latest fashions donated by our amazing supporters.
How old do I need to be?
To volunteer at a festival with Oxfam you must be 18 on the day you are required to arrive on site for your first festival. We also welcome older and more experienced individuals. It’s great to have a variety of skills and to learn from each other while enjoying the festival together.
Do you cater for medical and accessibility requirements?
Oxfam festival volunteering opportunities are open to everyone. We aim to create an environment that realises, challenges and utilises everyone's skills.

I am not from the UK. Can I volunteer?
If you are from the Common Travel Area (UK, Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man), are an EU/EEA citizen holding Settled or Pre-Settled Status, have European Temporary Right to Remain, or have a Working Holiday Visa, you have the right to volunteer in the UK. If you hold a different visa or immigration status, you need to check if you have the right to volunteer before applying.
UK immigration rules allow visitors from the EU to undertake volunteering provided it lasts no longer than 30 days in total. We are unable to support volunteer visas.
