Can you lend a hand?

Lakes Alive isn't possible without the support of fantastic and generous volunteers who give their time to be the face of the festival. Rain or shine they make sure everyone from the artists, to the audience, have the best possible experience.

If you would like to don an orange t-shirt, meet new people and be part of this years' team, we'd love to hear from you - whether you can spare a couple of hours, or a couple of weeks!

As a volunteer you will be the face of the festival – answering questions, giving out information and helping audiences get to where they need to be.

Our volunteers will receive reimbursement of reasonable out-of-pocket travel costs to Kendal. Refreshments from our festival traders on site and access to some the Lake District National Park volunteer’s offers and benefits.
