Volunteering at the Festivals


Want to join the team?

In 2024, HASSRA will be returning to The University of Warwick to stage the extremely popular and successful HASSRA Festivals.

With 27 events running across the 2 festivals and over 1000 members in attendance, volunteers play a crucial part in the delivery.

Volunteering will not only provide you with a hugely valuable and rewarding experience, but you will also have the opportunity to:

  • Meet new people
  • Gain new and use existing skills
  • Have fun!


The July Festival takes place on Friday 12th – Sunday 14th July.

The September Festival is Friday 6th – Sunday 8th September.

A full list of the events can be found at HASSRA Festivals.
