Volunteer at Forest Live and help deliver these amazing events

Love your forest and love music? Forestry England are looking for volunteers to help at our Forest Live concerts this summer. There's a variety of different roles available at a number of our beautiful sites, with opportunities ranging from meeting and greeting customers and providing them with information, to litter picking and helping keep walkways clear.

We’ll provide any training needed so no previous experience is necessary. And for those that haven’t done this before, it's great fun and a fantastic opportunity to be part of a team that delivers amazing events.

All Forest Live volunteers must be a minimum of 18 years of age.
