Volunteers at the Abbey Medieval Banquet

Our Festival is now seeking Volunteers!

The Abbey Medieval Festival would not be what it is today without the generosity of our volunteer community.

Our ‘Maxime Heroica‘ (Greatest Heroes) team experience the Abbey Medieval Festival from behind the scenes, enabling a very different perspective to that of our visitors. Dressed in costume and speaking  ‘Medieval’, our volunteers work across a variety of roles including the banquets, the gates, VIP, spruiking, performance, festival set-up, pack-down and many more. We are very grateful to have a loyal core of volunteers that return year after year, but as our festival grows, so too does the number of roles and the types of roles required.

Apply to volunteer for 2018!
