Volunteer

Each year Jane Austen Festival Australia engages volunteers to help with making everything happen from managing the stage to selling tickets. It’s a big job and a fun one where you can gain valuable industry experience, meet new people, learn new skills and get a discount ticket. We are looking for enthusiastic, friendly and motivated people to be part of the team that supports our special event. In 2019 Jane Austen Festival Australia is offering a 90 minutes a day Volunteer Ticket. We do not offer free volunteer tickets. 

A volunteer co-ordinator will be contacting volunteers in early 2019 as soon as the festival program is released to ask them to choose where/when they would like to volunteer and to then write up a roster.  

Volunteers will be asked to help with welcoming guests, registration, festival shop, costume hire, setup and pulldown of the festival marquees & tables, washing up tea cups, sweeping the ballroom floor, maintenance/cleaning of the self-serve tea/coffee tables, emptying bins, vacuuming craft rooms, checking toilets have enough paper stock, ensuring water & cups for presenters in teaching rooms, making sure red chairs are not taken outside the Albert Hall, and more.
