Volunteers needed to join band of helpers

A rallying call has been made for volunteers to join the Alnwick International Music Festival.

Recruits are needed to help make sure the annual event goes smoothly.

Helpers can offer their services in a number of ways, including practical tasks to help set up the festival, such as moving equipment, stage set-up and management.

Volunteers can also act as ‘hosts’ to look after each group, making sure the performers are made welcome, settle into their temporary accommodation and find their way to the right venues at the right time.

For information about helping out or for details about this year’s event, which runs from Saturday, August 4, to Saturday, August 11, visit the site www.alnwickmusicfestival.com
