We’re looking for specialist volunteers for our Assisted Access area. This is a part of the festival with a diverse customer base of differently abled people their friends and family.
Some of our customers are very vulnerable therefore experience of working with the differently abled community and a current DBS check would be required alongside.
There are two roles available.
Looking for a team of 3 people.
- To dig out a small fire pit carefully removing the turf so it can be returned on leaving.
- To build a small safe fire, for Assisted Access customers use.
- To collect firewood from the designated woodpile.
Two fire marshalls will need to be in attendance at all times when the fire is alight.
If only one is available the team leader will pair a crew member from my area with that fire marshall.
Generally the fire is lit around 8pm and finishes around midnight. This can vary and is heat/weather dependent. If any customers want to stay later sometimes we run a little longer.
Careful attention needs to be paid around the fire at all times. We have children and adults with learning difficulties, deaf and registered blind customers and some of our customers are non verbal.
The fire must be fully extinguished each night for Health & Safety reasons.
This is a friendly team and with a lovely friendly regular customer base as well as some new customers.
Each Fire Marshall will receive one crew food ticket per day and fuel costs to the festival.
If interested please email Carole at this address:
The Assisted Access area is also looking for guardians for the accessible shower.
- People with children are welcome
- Plumbing knowledge is a bonus
- Volunteers would need to be available 2 days before and 2 days after the festival.

The Green Gathering has been awarded £25,000 by Arts Council England as part of the government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund, to help face the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and emerge with a sustainable future.
This funding means good things for our festival this year. It will mean we can extend our venues to give you more dancing space, and create a dedicated team of cleaning pixies to monitor touchpoints. We’ll be able to buy screens to keep our incredible Box Office crew safe, even more handwash sinks and sanitiser stations – essentially, it will help us with all the extra costs involved in making sure this much-needed gathering will be a safe space for all.
You might remember that we recently conducted a survey asking what our festival goers want at the festival to feel covid safe. This new grant will be used to make sure what you said you needed is there.
The Green Gathering is one of almost 3,800 cinemas, performance venues, museums, heritage sites and other cultural organisations dealing with the immediate challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.
The funding awarded today is from a £400 million pot which was held back last year to ensure the Culture Recovery Fund could continue to help organisations in need as the public health picture changed. The funding has been awarded by Arts Council England, as well as Historic England and National Lottery Heritage Fund and the British Film Institute.
We have also been offered matched funding by a generous friend who noticed our Covid Crowdfunder didn’t quite reach its target.
The ‘matched’ part of this means that for every £5 donated by our community in April & May, our generous genie will also give us £5 – up to the grand total of £1000.
This will help us deliver the colourful, joyful festival we all deserve – because it’s not all about plumbing and sanitiser stations, is it?!
To put your coins into the magic hat, go to our Ticket Shop, scroll down & click on DONATE. We’ll tally up the total and report back…
THANKYOU TO EVERYONE SUPPORTING US THROUGH TOUGH TIMES
