Become a Festival Maker

The National Festival of Making takes over Blackburn town centre with an explosion of maker and digital technologies, have-a-go workshops, food stalls, international performances, art exhibits, music, food and markets. 

In 2019 over 100 volunteers came and supported the event to give visitors to Blackburn and the festival the best possible experience. ⁠ Now is your chance to join the team and experience the fun, learning and creativity that come from experiencing and being a part of the festival.

If your application is successful, you will receive training before the festival days. On the weekend of Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th June there are lots of different roles available. You may be asked to help out at Information Points, Workshops, be an Artwork invigilator and / or be part of the Evaluation team.
