Volunteers wanted for WCHF 2018

July 7, 2018

The West Cork History Festival will run from 16-19 August 2018, just outside Skibbereen in West Cork.  Now in its second year, the Festival is for everyone interested in history, with a diverse and engaging programme including talks, discussion and film screenings. Our speakers include leading historians, journalists, curators and writers.

We are looking for volunteers with a passion for history to help us run the Festival. We can’t offer payment, but if a volunteer works a morning or afternoon session then they will have free access to all the talks and events for the other half of the day. If you need accommodation we might be able to help as well. Tasks volunteers will be expected to undertake include selling and checking tickets, helping visitors, stewarding one of the two Festival venues and escorting speakers.

Our full programme can be seen on our website:


If you are interested please email Victoria Kingston - westcorkhistoryfestival@gmail.com - with information on any previous relevant experience, and also letting us know on which day of the Festival you might be able to help.
