As a not-for-profit organisation, Hidden Door is only possible thanks to dozens of volunteers giving their skills, time, energy and enthusiasm. There is a core team of around 30 individuals – all unpaid – contributing their time and skills to make the festival happen.

In addition to the core team, we’ve got about 100 volunteers signed up to help us during the festival.
