  • visitor support
  • artist assistant
  • photography/videography
  • social media

The deadline for applying for this year’s Light Night has now passed.

In 2019 our dedicated volunteers developed teamwork, confidence and communication skills, as well as getting the chance to boost their CV and make new friends.

I've volunteered at Light Night for the last two years and it's always such a wonderful, exciting and fun experience every time. It really is such an incredible event that brings art and people together in the most amazing way. Not only do you get a behind the scenes look at some of the most intense and passionate work from the creative world’s finest artists, but you also get to be there to interact with the public and witness their excitement and be excited with them
