Bristol Festival of Puppetry

We are looking for a dedicated volunteer team to help us in making this year’s festival the best ever.  We are seeking out people who enjoy thinking on their feet, chatting with the public, find a quiet enjoyment in sticking labels on envelopes (not too much of this), want to hone their photography and filming skills, can put together a pithy tweet, and really, really enjoy keeping a parade of carnival creatures on the road…they can get a bit unruly!
