There are many opportunities to volunteer for The Brighton Design Show. If you are over 18 and have an interest in supporting the festival and design in Brighton, this is a great way to get involved.

You need to be available between for 8 hours over the opening time period.

You’ll be on hand to check-in guests, look after speakers, take payments and handle tickets, help with the venue set up and generally be a friendly face around the exhibition to be a point of information for attendees. You’ll get to meet some amazing people, have priority when booking events, be able to attend the show for free and get special rates in the design shop.

Please fill in the application form below. Deadline for applications is to be announced. There will be training ahead of the festival where you can meet other volunteers and check out the venue.

The volunteer team operates in shifts so you will have your schedule in advance.
