Join Our Red Shirts!

Since it began in 2013, the Lakes International Comic Art Festival has relied on a trusty and experienced team of volunteers, known as The Red Shirt Brigade. We are always looking for new volunteers to join us over our annual weekend (29th September - 1st October 2023) - and if you think you might be interested, we would love to hear from you!

You can give as much or as little time as you would like, from the Friday to Sunday of the festival. There are lots of volunteer roles available - setting up venues, helping guests and visitors, managing queues, making tea, and so on.

We hold two volunteer meetings before the Festival, where you can meet our team.
