Volunteering with Lichfield Arts

Lichfield Arts has around 200 registered volunteers, many of whom have been involved with the organisation for many years. Through their efforts our volunteers are building stronger communities, supporting the local economy and enabling others to unlock their potential. However volunteering has many advantages and benefits to the individual.

Volunteering with Lichfield Arts is an ideal way to make new friends, learn new skills, be involved with like minded people and feel valued and respected while participating in fun, varied and interesting roles. Be part of a diverse and enthusiastic team at Lichfield Arts and help us to make our events even better and contribute to our success and future sustainability.

So what is motivating our volunteers to give their time and skills? Volunteering enables and encourages people to play an active role in their society and contribute to positive social change. Volunteering helps to break down social barriers, encourages cohesion and offers people an opportunity to socialise with people from different social and cultural backgrounds. Being involved enables our volunteers to keep physically and mentally active and offers a great way to improve their social life.

We welcome volunteers for a variety of roles: helping to run our concerts through stewarding, glass collecting, selling raffle tickets, bar serving and front of house; making our festivals and community events safe and enjoyable through stewarding and helping with set up and take down of equipment; our festival committees require support with marketing, funding, liaising with local authorities, health and safety, seeking new venues, liaising with artists and much more.

We also have a team of Trustees, each of whom is also a volunteer. The Trustee team is collectively responsible for the safe, lawful, ethical and successful running of the organisation. Each Trustee has an area of responsibility/specialism, whether it be health and safety, human resources, finance, outreach, the bar and its associated legalities and licensing, strategic development and many more roles in line with Lichfield Arts’ constitution and governance documents.

Regardless of the role fulfilled or the time a volunteer is able to give, Lichfield Arts values and appreciates the efforts and commitment, and indeed the importance, of every individual and the work they do.

Fuse festival Go Fund Me CampaignHelp us to deliver Fuse and bring our community back together!

Fuse is free, put on every year by our team of volunteers at Lichfield Arts. Due to Covid-19 our normal fundraising has been severely curtailed right when we need it most to bring our community back together and keep our visitors, performers and volunteers safe. So, we need your help to fill the gap and ensure that Fuse can happen – especially as connecting with our community and loved ones in a safe, enjoyable and engaging way is so important right now.
