Planet B Volunteers

Peterborough is home to one of the longest running and largest Green Festivals in the UK, and this year it takes on a new life as ‘Planet B’. The environmental charity PECT, working alongside arts organisation Metal and The Green Backyard and with funding from Arts Council England, will be running Planet B from Saturday 29th July through to Saturday 12th August 2017.

Planet B encompasses a two-week programme of events, performances, film screenings, workshops, commissioned artworks, and a conference – all around encouraging discussion and debate on sustainability.

The environment is a huge subject that can often feel hard to get to grips with, but Planet B is asking: ‘What needs to happen for people to understand the issues, become more resilient together and take positive actions?’

We're looking for the following volunteers:
  • Event Assistants
  • Parade Marshal
  • Exhibition Assistants
  • Artists Assistants
  • Assistant Chefs
  • Waiting/Serving Staff
  • Waste Advice Heroes

To find out more on these roles, please see the Description and Full Volunteer Role Profiles.

There will be a briefing held for volunteers (all roles) on Thursday 20th July, 2 – 3pm or 6.30 – 7.30pm at Metal, Chauffeurs Cottage, 1 St Peters Rd (behind the Town Hall), Peterborough, PE1 1YX.

Please make sure you have registered your interest prior to this date by contacting the relevant person on each role description.
