Our Festival Assistants (FAs) are enthusiastic, dedicated and hard-working individuals who are responsible for the day-to-day running of the Festival and play a vital role in the overall success of the Festival. Our FAs work as a team on a range of administrative and front-of-house duties and are additionally responsible for a specific aspect of the Festival. These paid positions are ideally suited to someone looking to gain experience in arts administration and events management: past FAs have gone on to careers in venue, events, and artist management and in hospitality. The FAs will need to be available throughout October, and will need to be resident in or near Oxford during that time.

Further details about these positions can be found here.
All positions have been filled except the Marketing Festival Assistant role. To apply, please send Taya Smith ([email protected]) a CV and cover letter or contact us with any queries.


We are looking for volunteers to help make the Festival a success. There are many ways you can get involved – stewarding concerts, page-turning, proof reading programmes, helping with Festival marketing and administration, providing airport transfers for our international artists. In exchange, you will get to experience some exceptional concerts for free. If you're interested, please contact Taya Smith ([email protected]) with your availability.
