We are looking for people to help out at Essex Book Festival 2022. Our team of volunteers, or “Festival Bookies’, play a crucial role in the smooth running of the festival. Join the festival family and be part of the buzz at some of our key events.

Could you be a Festival Bookie?

To be a Bookie you will need to be enthusiastic and friendly and love books. There is a large variety of tasks we need help with from distributing brochures, setting up venues and ushering audiences to serving refreshments and looking after authors so there is something to suit everyone. In return for your help you will receive perks including attending some festival events for free and free festival books (subject to availability).

If you are interested in becoming a Festival Bookie and would like to find out more please email [email protected] with Festival Bookies in the subject line.
