Galway Theatre Festival 3- 11th May 2019


Galway Theatre Festival features 9 days of exciting theatre, circus, spectacle, and storytelling, showcasing the vibrant performance culture of Ireland’s festival city. The goal of Galway Theatre Festival is to bring a fresh and lively programme of performance to the streets and venues of Galway, evoking a raw energy and adventurous spirit in our audiences. Now in its 11th year, Galway Theatre Festival draws on Galway’s unique theatrical heritage, and is one of Ireland’s only festivals dedicated to theatre and performance. The Festival provides a platform for national artists and artists based in the West of Ireland, bringing together a high-quality programme that showcases the best and newest talents in theatre, spectacle, circus, storytelling and immersive performance.

Galway Theatre festival is run by a small team of staff, we couldn’t do it without the help of amazing volunteers who assist us with many different aspects of running the festival.

Volunteers work in pairs or small groups with the support of GTF staff. Shifts usually last 2-3 hours and volunteers can work as many or little shifts as they like. There are many different volunteer roles available at GTF including customer service, ticketing, promotion, surveying, and stewarding.

In the run up to the festival we are looking for volunteers to join our Pre- Festival Team. Pre-festival team volunteers focus on Distribution & Marketing, we pair volunteers into groups of two or three with the teams of volunteers distributing programmes, promoting events and putting up Festival and Artist posters. This is important in making sure the word gets out and creating a good buzz about the festival.

Joining the pre-festival team is a great way to meet new people, get out and about see more of the city. You'll also be able to avail of some great GTF rewards.
