Opportunities for Young People (Aged 16-21)

Young Programmers Group and Young Board Members. 

We want young people to have a role in all parts of our work, from helping us make big decisions about the company to deciding what we put in Mayfest. 

We’d like to hear from young people across Bristol, whatever your qualifications, background or work experience. 


We’re always looking to expand our team of casual volunteers who assist with everything from flyering and stewarding, to helping out in the office and even sometimes appearing as extras in our shows! If you’re interested in giving us some of your time to help make Mayfest happen, email with your name, contact details and how you think you can help us out.

Work Experience

As we are such a small team, we are unfortunately not able to respond to requests for work experience. We occasionally advertise internships and placements through specific schemes. Any future placements will be advertised on this page.
