The Durham Book Festival will be held 7 - 15 October 2017 and features a host of prominent writers, poets and political minds such as Roddy Doyle, Lionel Shriver, Robert Webb, Ala Hollinghurst, June Sarpong, Tracy Chevalier, Andrew McMillan and David Almond. The festival is looking for volunteers to help with the running of events.

As a volunteer, you’ll be allowed free entry to all Durham Book Festival events and have the chance to meet some of the authors. You’ll also get a free t-shirt. Volunteer roles might include ticket-selling, ushering, dealing with enquiries from the public, assisting authors and publishers, or set moving and cleaning. If interested, please apply here by Monday 19 September.
