Be a Shakeout Shaker Maker

Big Shakeout 2017

Volunteer at the Big Shakeout

Be a Shaker Maker and volunteer at the Big Shakeout

Volunteering is a great way to get involved with the Big Shakeout and without our Shaker Makers the festival just wouldn’t be what it is. As a Shaker Maker you’ll ensure guests leave the festival having experienced an unforgettable event.  You’ll be part of a small team ensuring the cogs of the festival keep turning and could find yourself getting involved with anything from parking cars to changing a loo roll to pulling a pint.  

The kind of work includes welcoming people on site, being a steward, help with litter picking or work in one of our bars. If you're fully licensed to drive a 17 seater minibus with MiDAS training all the better and you can help cut down on car travel and drop take people to/from activities and Grindleford station.  

Volunteers are only on duty for a few shifts across the entire festival weekend.  Expect to work 7 hours which will leave loads of time to enjoy the bands, talks, films and event activities. As a Shaker Maker you'll get a free festival ticket, one free meal per shift and a free SofA course (subject to availability).

If you would like to become a Shaker Maker, please download the application PDF, complete the required details, list the shifts you’d ideally like to work and indicate which course you would like to take part in.

Please post your completed application to us at: BSO Shaker Maker Application, Alpkit Ltd, Units 12-14 Oak House, Moorgreen Industrial Park, Engine Lane, Newthorpe. Nottingham. NG16 3QU or alternatively email it to us at
