Events returning throughout October 2020

IF Oxford relies on dozens of brilliant volunteers: without them, the Festival would not be able to take place

Thousands of people visit the Festival each year and our volunteers help to make sure events go smoothly for everyone, from setting up events and stewarding the public to helping with evaluation or social media monitoring. See them all over Oxford wearing bright yellow Festival T-shirts.
