LookFest 2020 Has Been Postponed
After the huge success of LookFest 2019, we are doing it all over again in July 2020.
Join us in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside for a fun-filled weekend with the #LookFamily.
From forest school to festival art, sand pits and slip-n-slides, circus skills to Ceilidh dancing. A full programme of activities will be announced soon.
Designed by VI People, for VI People!
The LookFest site is made accessible with guide ropes, tactile markers and audio clues. Hand-made tactile maps are dotted around the site in key areas, and our friendly team of volunteers are always happy to help.
Meet The #Look Family
Our team of hard-working volunteers includes fully sighted volunteers and VI Look mentors.
Our mentors are VI young adults who are committed to sharing their experience to provide role models for their younger peers.
Volunteering at LOOKFest 2020
Whether you are VI or sighted, there are plenty of jobs to do at LOOKFest! and we need your help. Our volunteers had a great time volunteering at LOOKFest in 2019 – and we guarantee it will be even better in 2020!
“I felt a great sense of achievement after volunteering at LOOKFest. This was my first ever camping experience and I was extremely anxious, not knowing what to expect. Connecting with the families and seeing them enjoying the event gave me a much-needed confidence boost.”
We are a supportive and welcoming community. It is also rewarding! Supporting others and being part of a team feels great and gives your CV a real boost to boot!
“I think my experience volunteering at LOOKFest will support me when I am seeking employment and work experience in the future because it has improved several life skills which are universally useful and transferable.”
We want to give all our volunteers a chance to develop their skills and try new things, and there are plenty of important roles for everyone.
Please come along and get involved!
When are volunteers needed on-site?
Volunteers will be required to join us on-site from Thursday 16 July and leave on Monday 20 July. This is to give everyone time to settle in, get to know each other and the site before the event. There will be plenty of jobs to do in preparing the site for our guests and plenty of clearing up to do afterwards.
Food and accommodation
Volunteers will be provided with shared camping accommodation and meals throughout their stay on-site from Thursday 16 July to Monday 20 July.
From assisting at activities, to working at the LOOKFest café, there are plenty of roles for you to get involved in. Please read our volunteer roles and conduct page before applying.
