Events Volunteer

What is an Events Volunteer?

Falkirk Community Trust hosts a wide range of family fun events throughout the year, including Emergency Services Day, Outdoor Theatre, The Big Picnic, Falkirk Science Festival, Callendar Park Fireworks and Fire and Light. These events take place outside at Callendar, Muiravonside and The Helix Park!


Event Volunteers meet and greet the audience, sign post the audience, steward, help with tidying up at the end of the event, check tickets, and are the friendly face of the event. Duties will vary depending on the event, but the role is flexible and you can choose which events you would like to volunteer. Why not join our team – you will be supporting your community whilst having fun at the same time too!
