We are lucky and proud to have had many wonderful people volunteering with us so far. We could not run things without the fantastic support we receive from dedicated volunteers, and would like to offer the opportunity for others to become part of this exciting on-going process. There is always a chance to help out – from becoming one of our regular team to joining in for a single event.

Here are just a few things that have been said about people’s experiences along the way:

‘I really enjoyed assisting at the event itself during the festival… preparing and setting up was equally exciting’
‘I felt truly welcomed by a wonderful group of people’
‘Invaluable experience’
‘I really got a good idea of event management and the teamwork needed to organise such events’

Metal’s events
We hold many other types of occasions when we sometimes require others to lend a hand: our annual Village Green art and music festival at Chalkwell Park, evening events such as the popular Pecha Kucha nights; also Salon and Future Park, to name a few regulars. Helping at these events will again give an insight into this particular area of the creative industry, and you would be working very much as part of a small and dedicated team.



We are looking for volunteers to help us across the Southend programme; supporting our mental wellbeing groups, educational projects, event support and lots of other opportunities! Please email chalkwell@metalculture.com for more details.
