Call for volunteers


It’s that time of the year again – we are looking for volunteers to help run this year’s Hidden Door Festival!

Hidden Door Festival showcases theatre, cinema, spoken word, visual art and music by local and international artists and aims to create a platform showcasing the arts to a wide ranging audience. This year the festival will take place from the 26th of May until the 4th of June and we are really excited to be moving to the renowned Old Leith Theatre as a venue for Hidden Door Festival 2017. The building is currently derelict as it has been closed since 1988 so there’s a lot to do!

So this is where you come in! Hidden Door Festival is 100% run by volunteers so we need your help to make it happen! We are looking for friendly and happy faces to help us with a range of jobs and make this the most exciting Hidden Door Festival we have ever had.


Why volunteer?

We’re looking for self-motivated team members for a range of duties before, during and after the festival. Duties might include helping with construction and build, clearing up the venue, event stewarding and crowd control, invigilating on site artwork etc.

If you are interested in being part of the Hidden Door Festival, please send us an email with the duties that you would like to get involved in, why you’d like to volunteer and any relevant experience to Please note there may be some late shifts and weekend working over the festival.

We are really excited to hear from anyone interested and we’re looking forward to meeting you!
