Volunteering


Can you spare some time to help us?

Run entirely by volunteers, the Association needs help year round with a number of tasks. Some are small, stand alone jobs. Other work takes longer to complete, some tasks require working within a team. If you can spare any time at all, please download and complete the Volunteer Interest Survey and send it fo info@aberdeenmusicfestival.com. Those with I.T. skills are particularly welcome.

Stewards are essential to enable festival week to run smoothly. Certain sections attract large groups of competitors e.g. choirs, instrumental groups, orchestras, bands etc. It can be very difficult to find enough people to act as stewards to help run the Festival efficiently.

Just two or three hours during Festival Week?

Although it is unpaid, volunteers can be assured that they aremaking a vital contribution to the organisation of the Festival. We therefore appeal to anyone who has a few hours to spare during Festival week to consider giving their names to the Secretary to join our stalwart team of Stewards.

There are three ways in which you can help:

  • Cash Steward - Takes entrance money and makes sure people do not enter the hall during a performance.
  • Board Steward - Checks that competitors are present, and puts the relevant numbers from the programme on the competitors’ board.
  • Adjudicator’s Assistant - Assists at adjudicator’s desk with music, adjudication sheets and certificates.

If you are willing, or know of anyone who might be willing, to give a morning, afternoon or evening to undertake one of these duties, please complete the volunteering form and email it to info@aberdeenmusicfestival.com.
