There are so many ways to get involved in Tide of Light. You can participate in one of many activities that take place through the year and on the night because without volunteers we wouldn’t have an event. This is your event run by people like you. 

If you can help out in any way we would love to hear from you. 

We welcome one off and micro volunteering, as well as longer term commitment.

You can find all our volunteering opportunities here at Volunteer Plus 


Our roles include 

Makers and Helpers – Crafting sessions various dates throughout the year 

Cake Makers and Tea Brewers – giving a helping hand at our events, including workshops, festival workshops and on the night

 Kids Council Helpers – giving our young people a hand at their meetups once a term. more info LINK TO KIDS COUNCIL 

Sculpture Builders – making opportunities with full training available, and then team working – more info LINK TO BIG MAKE 

Trustees – giving the project a professional steer and shaping the direction of our organisation into the future. 

Festival Planning Group – this is the hands on festival management team, we’re a friendly bunch and always need more hands on designing and shaping the event.


Please remember any help (however little) is help, and we could all do with a bit of that!
