Volunteer at Are You Listening? Festival

Are You Listening? Festival raises vital funds for the local learning disability charity, Reading Mencap and has raised over £75,000 for the charity since starting in 2013. The festival simply couldn’t happen without the help of all our brilliant volunteers, so let us know if you’d like to join the team.

What We Need

We need outgoing, sociable volunteers to cover the doors at all our venues, check and sell wristbands, help the festival-goers on the day and encourage donations to Reading Mencap. You will always be paired with other volunteers and you’ll have a team of Volunteer Co-ordinators helping you throughout the day.

Before the festival, we also need volunteers to help us promote the event by delivering flyers and displaying festival posters in workplaces, pubs, cafes, gyms and anywhere else people can see them.

What You Get

For volunteering for a minimum of four hours, you will receive a festival wristband, a festival programme and other perks including drink and food vouchers (food – dependent on your slot time). You’ll also get to meet loads of like-minded people and help raise money for a brilliant local charity.

How to Sign Up

To sign up as a volunteer, please contact the Heavy Pop team on volunteers@heavypop.co.uk

We will have volunteer meet-ups before the festival and volunteer inductions on the day so you know what you’ll be doing on the day.
