Fat Tuesday needs you!

Hastings Fat Tuesday are on the lookout for volunteers. We need YOU! says recruiting sergeant John Knowles.

Fat Tuesday is our annual mardi-gras music festival, a (mainly) free event over five days with celebration and music at its heart, from 9 to 13 February.

We need volunteers to do a variety of jobs:

  • Handing out flyers and programmes at events
  • Front of house greeters
  • Audience survey data collectors
  • Marshals for the Umbrella Parade
  • Event support at the Mardi Gras Ball, Unplugged Saturday and the famous Fat Tuesday Tour.

This is a fabulous learning experience and a great event to have on your CV!

In return Fat Tuesday are offering:

  • Entry to the best music events in town during the week!
  • Two volunteer training sessions: one to prepare you for being a public face of Fat Tuesday. The second is a workshop guide to ‘working with the public’
  • Guidance from the Fat Tuesday team for those of you interested in working in music/events industry
  • Reference letters for future employees or colleges
  • Travel expenses, so that you are not out of pocket by helping us.
