Volunteers at the Abbey Medieval Banquet

Volunteer at the Abbey Medieval Festival

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. Dressed in costume and speaking in a Medieval-manner, our volunteers work across a variety of roles including the customer service, hospitality, performance reviews, set-up and many more.

The opportunity to volunteer for the 2018 Abbey Medieval Festival has been and gone, but there will still be plenty of opportunity to join the team for the 30th Abbey Medieval Festival in 2019—keep an eye out on our website, or stay updated by following us on Facebook, or subscribing to our newsletter.

Current volunteer opportunities

Can’t wait until the next Festival? We often have opportunities available with the Festival Organising Committee, and at the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology. Visit the Museum’s website to read more about volunteering opportunities.

The Organising Committee for the Abbey Medieval Festival is largely made up of volunteer coordinators who are assigned to a specific portfolio. These portfolio teams work year round to make the Festival happen. If you’d like to express your interest, or learn more about being part of the Festival Organising Committee, please email the Abbey Museum Office.
