The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

OR­GAN­IS­ERS of a live mu­sic fes­ti­val tak­ing place in Peter­bor­ough are re­cruit­ing vol­un­teers.

The Wil­low Fes­ti­val will be the largest live mu­sic event in Peter­bor­ough in 2012 with 123 bands from all over the UK play­ing across six stages.

It ran from 1998 to 2003 and is re­turn­ing this year to once again be­come an an­nual event in the city.

This year’s event will take place from Fri­day, May 25 to Sun­day, May 27 on the city’s Em­bank­ment.

Fes­ti­val or­gan­is­ers need to re­cruit 330 vol­un­teers to work be­fore, af­ter and dur­ing the three-day fes­ti­val.

Vol­un­teers are needed for a range of du­ties in­clud­ing help­ing to look af­ter the VIP sec­tion, stage hands, lit­ter pick­ing and man­ning in­for­ma­tion points.

Fes­ti­val or­gan­is­ers will also be re­cruit­ing a smaller num­ber of key vol­un­teers that will co­or­di­nate some of the ac­tiv­i­ties on site.

A spokesman for the event said: “The Wil­low Fes­ti­val is a free fes­ti­val and re­lies on sup­port from the com­mu­nity in the form of vol­un­teers and lo­cal busi­nesses to re­main free to the public.

“Vol­un­teers can take part for the whole day or as part of a shift pat­tern.”
