The fourth annual Ageing Well Festival is coming very soon (Saturday 20th October, 10am-6pm, Paignton Community and Sports Academy in Borough Road) and there are several ways you can play a part .
For a start, Ageing Well are looking for poets, budding and established, to perform their work during the festival and if you would like a little help with your work, they say, ‘Come along to our free workshop at the Bright Bean Coffee Shop, 319 Torquay Road, between 2 and 4 pm on October 11th – emailing Melanie Crump on firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more detail.’
Anyone interested in helping out at the event is also more than welcome to come along and volunteer as there are all sorts of roles up for grabs to help the year festival run smoothly:
Helping set up on Friday 19th
Welcoming festival attendees
Helping in one of the spaces hosting activities and performances
Helping performers and speakers to arrive and set up
Helping with marshalling car park
Helping with pack down on Sunday
They’re asking volunteers to commit to minimum 3 hour sessions if possible (but ‘If you can’t do as many as 3 hours please just let us know,’ they add). They will recompense £10 – cash given on the day – while hot drinks and biscuits will be freely available.
If you’re interested in volunteering, please fill out our Google Form (found at the link below) or for more info, email email@example.comfirstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01803 212638.
