Volunteering opportunities at Imperial Festival 2018


Applications are open for all to volunteer at Imperial Festival - the College's flagship celebration of science, engineering and creativity.

Each year hundreds of volunteers lend their time, enthusiasm and skills to the Imperial Festival helping make it a major event in London’s cultural and educational calendars. Anyone can volunteer, whether a staff member, a student or a member of the public who would like to support the College.

More than 250 people from inside and outside the Imperial community sign up to fill a huge variety of volunteer roles, from tour guides to zone assistants, balloon assistants, social media officers and more.
