Slapstick Festival 2024: Call for Volunteers 

Bristol’s Slapstick festival 2024 will run from 14 to 18th February and we are seeking volunteers who’d like to help us present our latest line-up of unique events celebrating silent & classic screen comedy. 

This year we’ll be using three venues: Bristol Beacon, Bristol Old Vic and Watershed, all in Bristol city centre and all offering a variety of volunteer roles, including selling merchandise, taking care of displays, managing guest tickets, general stewarding, handling mics during Q&As, backstage support and more. 

In return, volunteers gain 

  • first hand insight into the running of one of Bristol’s best-loved festivals. 
  • a useful new addition to CVs. 
  • the chance to become part of a friendly team and meet those with a shared passion for film and comedy
  • pride at playing a vital part in giving audiences a happy, memorable time and making sure Slapstick 2023 is a success.

Volunteers also receive a free souvenir T-shirt
