Volunteers needed for bOing! 2017
Gulbenkian
The festival organisers are urgently looking for volunteers to help the event run smoothly – and have some brilliant opportunities.

bOing! is fast becoming one of the UK's leading family arts festivals, with up to 11,000 people visiting in 2016. The festival organisers are urgently looking for volunteers to help the event run smoothly – and have some brilliant opportunities.

One of the stars of bOing!2017 is the PENTALUM LUMINARIUM, a huge, inflatable structure of extraordinary beauty which audiences can walk through, explore and enjoy. The Luminarium is manned by a group of enthusiastic volunteers, who greet the audience and help guide them round this incredible experience.

Gulbenkian Director, Liz Moran explains;

"Since Architects of Air formed over 20 years ago, their Luminaria have travelled to 37 countries and wowed audiences across the globe. They came to bOing! last year with Mirazozo Luminarium and due to such incredible demand we are very excited to be bringing them back with a new Luminarium - called Pentalum - as part of bOing! and that they want members of our community to be involved with running it.

We want everyone to have the chance to be part of bOing! and volunteering is a brilliant way to get involved. Joining the Luminarium team is just one way volunteers can help, so if you want to do something brilliant and totally different this August please get in contact with us."

Organisers promise that as a bOing! volunteer you will gain extraordinary insight into the running of the event, develop new skills and meet others with a shared passion.  As a thank you, you will leave with complimentary tickets to future shows and films at Gulbenkian.

bOing! International Family Festival takes place on Saturday, August 26 and Sunday, August 27, on the beautiful University of Kent campus in Canterbury and is an amazing weekend of the very best in theatre, dance, music, films and fun for all the family, packed with magical performances and experiences.
