Steward at the festival

Be part of the public face of Cambridge Literary Festival and help us to welcome thousands of visitors to enjoy the foremost literary festival in the East of England! Stewards are essential to the smooth running of the festival and they will work with a Head Steward and Artist Liaison to ensure that audiences fully enjoy the festival. Stewards’ tasks may include setting up venues, directing audiences, managing book-signing queues, distributing programmes, manning the Green Room and keeping venues tidy. Shifts are usually 4-5 hours long.

We’ll be recruiting in September for the Winter Festival (November 25-26). Get in touch if you’d like to be added to the volunteer mailing list for future events. Email Katie Edwards, Festival Assistant
