Volunteer stewards wanted for spectacular fire and music installation event in Oxford
A chance to take part in Luminox, a spectacular night-time fire installation in
Oxford's historic Broad Street from 15-17 March featuring Carabosse, an acclaimed
company of French artists and a specially curated programme of live music.
Volunteers will help support a professional stewarding and event team to ensure
public welfare and provide event information. You'll also get to wear a natty
green jacket and use a radio if that sort of thing appeals to you!
If you have some previous event stewarding experience and would like to be
involved please email mailto:simon_at_simonchatterton_dot_co_dot_uk
We can cover reasonable local travel costs and evening meal/drinks.
