Call for Volunteers

We’re getting ready for another Hidden Door Festival and we need your help to build and run it!

Hidden Door Festival showcases theatre, cinema, spoken word, visual art, dance and music by local and international artists, and aims to create a platform showcasing the arts to a wide audience. This year the festival will take place from the 25th of May until the 3rd of June. We are really excited to be returning to the spectacular Old Leith Theatre for Hidden Door Festival 2018, as well as expanding to a second venue, the former State Cinema which is just around the corner.

So that’s where you come in! Hidden Door Festival is completely volunteer led so we need your help to make it happen. Once again we are looking for friendly faces to help us with a range of tasks and activities, and make this the most exciting Hidden Door Festival yet.

We’re looking for self-motivated team members for a range of duties before, during and after the festival such as:
