Whilst our most public offering each year is the festival our interest in community is much more than that. It is a wide reaching creative community and our volunteers are at the very core of that idea. Without this team of dedicated individuals Sunflowerfest simply could not happen each year. It takes all sorts of people to prepare and manage an event of this scale and experience isn't always the most important thing, nor is youth. We are always in need of people who are keen to get involved creatively or gain experience in helping us shape our festival.

Our volunteers have the very crucial role of being our social energizers and ambassadors, whilst helping to make the festival as awesome and safe as possible.

Roles range from; artists, skilled laborers, skilled-tradespeople, gardeners, administrators, creatives and everything in between.

Sunflowerfest is a festival of positivity, tolerance, understanding and inclusion so it should go without saying that we are committed to diversity, equality and preventing discrimination. Everyone involved with the festival is expected to act in accordance with this ethos.
