Would you like to help?

Putting on a Festival requires a huge team of people to make sure every aspect of the event runs smoothly. We are proud of our small and dedicated team of part time staff, but we are always looking for more volunteers to help. 

We need a Treasurer to assist The General Secretary to keep all the accounts up to date throughout the year and help with the end of year accounts.

Our Dance Secretary is retiring after many years and we need to find a new Dance Secretary more information available from  -info@hastingsmf.org.uk

Perhaps you are an alumni of the Festival or have children who participate - if you have skills which would be helpful to The Festival throughout the year please get in touch with General Secretary on info@hastingsmf.org.uk. We are particularly looking for people who can help us with marketing, fund raising and social media. As well as volunteers who help with the running of the Festival we are also interested in hearing from people who might wish to become Trustees of the Charity.  If you have an interest in the arts and would like to find out more please contact our Chair, Lesley Moore on lsmoore088@gmail.com

If you can spare any time during the three weeks of the Festival to become a volunteer for the roles listed below, please contact our Volunteer Secretary Heather Spence on mail2spence@yahoo.co.uk
