Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Brighton WonderFest, a one-day festival celebrating the wonder of the world around us.


Brighton WonderFest is organised and run entirely by volunteers from Curiosity Sussex, a registered CIO. We want to bring people together to share ideas, and we know how much of an impact volunteers have on making events a success!

We are looking for volunteers to help at the event in a variety of roles:

- Helping exhibitors set-up and run stands

- Welcoming visitors

- Escorting visitors around the exhibits

- Running creative stands

- Collecting evaluation data

...and more!


Our volunteers are really important to us, and we are really grateful for your support. Whether you have experience in running hands-on activities, organising events, or are purely keen to support a charity, you are welcome at Brighton WonderFest.


Our aim is to make WonderFest as accessible as possible: the main entrance is accessible by ramp, we will have hearing loops available and be running a quiet hour at the start of the event, open to anyone who prefers a quieter atmosphere. 

We will have a range of roles you can help with, and we'll rotate activities so you can experience a variety of activities. To apply, please fill in the form here.


Volunteer call opens: 16 September

Volunteer call closes: 18 October

Details emailed: 23 October

If you have any questions, do get in touch: at hello@curiositysussex.org.uk


Everyone is invited to explore Brighton WonderFest because we believe that diverse contributions lead to richer debates and knowledge generation. We expect our volunteers to enable people from all backgrounds and with different experiences to feel represented and included. We also aim to provide any reasonable adjustments for volunteer providers. Anyone acting against our expectations will be asked to leave. 

To volunteer, you have to be over the age of 18.
