About the event
Apple Day Brighton is our biggest annual event, and we need your help!
We need a team of 100 volunteers to help us run the event. One of them could be you!
Given the size of the event we also need help the day before and the day after. You don’t have to work all three days. You can tell us which days you want to work, and whether you want to work in the morning or afternoon. You can also specify the tasks you prefer.
Setting up the park the day before is a lot of work and absolutely vital for the smooth running of the event on Sunday. The more help we have, the quicker we can get it set up! Tasks include preparing fresh apple juice, setting up stall spaces on the green, putting up signs/decorating, and so forth.
On the day of the event, we will need help across all areas, from juicing apples to helping on stalls and behind the bar. The sign-up form itself lists some of the our main needs, and we particularly appreciate it when people tick the box that says ‘help wherever needed,’ as it does give us more flexibility in planning.
The day after is all about making sure the park is clean and tidy and sorting out all the equipment that we used, as well as cleaning and tidying our barn space.
What you need to know
As with all of our courses and events, we could not run this successfully without your help. It does require enthusiasm and commitment to make this event happen, and we really hope you’ll rise to the occasion and join us!
No experience is necessary, and new volunteers are very welcome.
We are a very small team, but, with your help, we can be a very big team that will really make a difference in the running of this event!
