Show Volunteers

Show Volunteers
Weeton Show
Description of the role:

We welcome community-spirited volunteers all ages and abilities to assist in a variety of tasks from setting up for the show, car park marshalling, checking tickets at the gate, dismantling after the show and ensuring the grounds are free of litter. It's a fantastic opportunity to meet other people, have lots of fun and contribute to the smooth running and success of 'The Greatest Little Show in Yorkshire'

Skills and qualities needed for the role:

No specific skills required - just enthusiasm and a willingness to have fun!
If you do have any particular skills, we would love to hear about them.

Practical information:

There are activities that need to be done in the run up to the show (which is the last weekend in July), some on the day and further activities for a couple of days after the show. We appreciate that volunteers may have other commitments and we do not expect them to be available for the whole duration (unless they want to!) A few hours, a day or two, or even more would help the show committee enormously.
It's never too early to register your interest by email:

Organisation Information

All the usual classics - Punch and Judy, brass bands, ferret racing, candyfloss, ice cream and pints of Weeton Wiggle. Watch riders in the show jumping arena. Be entertained by carriage driving, hounds and beagles and shows throughout the day on the main event field. Indulge in a bit of light shopping in local food, trade and craft stalls. Or if you are feeling athletic take part in the Rougemont Chase! Bring a pet to one of the small animal classes. Have some fun in the produce tent, challenging friends and neighbours to claim a coveted rosette in a bake off challenge, or local art, craft, horticulture exhibits or children's classes. And don't forget, with over twenty trophies available for the very best exhibitors, there's a chance of taking some silverware home for the mantelpiece. All proceeds are for the benefit of the community. Each year we choose a local charity to donate show proceeds to.
