Each festival, hundreds of people take part in Mayfest. There are lots of ways to get involved. You could volunteer to help stage the shows in the festival, take part in workshops, and sometimes even perform in a show. 

Many Mayfest placements and volunteers are now in senior leadership roles in cultural organisations all over the UK, including the BBC, Royal Court, Wales Millennium Centre, Bristol Old Vic, Colston Hall and many more. 

On this page we post all our job and placement opportunities for Mayfest. You can also see other opportunities to work with us outside of Mayfest on the MAYK website.

"Had I not been given the opportunity to work on Mayfest, I'm not sure I would have even known that arts marketing was even a career option, let alone chosen to pursue it! I'm now Marketing Manager at the Royal Court, and I think my passion for the brave, contemporary theatre I work on now can definitely be traced back to my time with the Mayfest team." Dion Wilson
