Volunteer opportunity description

On Sunday 24th June, Bankside Open Spaces Trust is hosting what is likely to be the biggest street party the area has seen, with everything from bake offs to bark offs. It’s all part of ‘The Great Get Together’ a nationwide event inspired by Jo Cox. Help us host this amazing event!

Last year, a record nine million people gathered across the UK as part of 'The Great Get Together' event, and the Bankside event broke all local records with over 4,500 people taking part.

This year we are expecting an even bigger and better event, with performances across four stages, over 100 performers, and attractions including live music, a dog show, an animal farm, wacky races, and many other festive elements.

For the event, we are looking for keen, creative individuals aged 18+ to be Volunteer Stewards, to support the production team on various shifts from 8am to 10pm, rotating on different duties throughout the day and assisting the SIA security team onsite.

Duties include:

  • Welcoming the public to the event
  • Handing out event guides and children safety wristbands
  • Supporting the security team
  • Litter picking
  • Assisting head stewards with setting up and d-rigging
  • Collecting feedback from attendees

There is also the opportunity to volunteer on Saturday 23rd June (6-9pm) decorating the sites.

We cannot reimburse volunteer expenses but light refreshments will be provided.


We are looking for people who are confident in engaging with the public, working within a team and working on community events.


For the event to work, it is very important that volunteers are able to commit to these two days:

• Thursday 21st June (6.30pm-8pm) for a Health and Safety briefing, guided by our security team. Light refreshments will be provided.

• Sunday 24th June various duties to support the event team (various shifts from 8am to 10pm).

Volunteers will need to complete a volunteer registration form to participate. Additional volunteer meetings may also be scheduled.
