Volunteer with us

The Jane Austen Festival relies on a team of wonderful volunteers to help set up and steward events throughout the ten days of the Festival.

These volunteers work hard in all sorts of capacities: welcoming guests, checking tickets, helping our speakers and performers set up equipment and staging, moving furniture, accompanying walking tours, taking photos and all-round helping our Festival visitors make wonderful memories. The Festival simply wouldn't happen without the wonderful volunteer stewards.

If you would like to be considered for the 2024 Jane Austen festival, are over 18, can supply your own Regency costume, (stewards must be in costume), speak English to a good level, and understand the currency, please complete the application form. 

For the 2024 Jane Austen Festival we are looking for stewards to either work for the full 10 days, or stewards who just work over the two weekends (Saturdays & Sundays).

Jane Austen Festival 2024 - 13th to 22nd September 2024

Steward applications currently paused for the 2024 Jane Austen Festival while we process those received

What previous volunteers said about the Festival

"Stewarding the Jane Austen Festival has become a highlight of my year, and something I look forward to time and time again. It’s not just the amazing events and costumes that keep me coming back, it’s also the people – the friends I have made here, and the feeling of being part of a warm, supportive, silly, but efficient and trusting ‘family’."

"Stewarding the festival was so much fun! I met some wonderful people and was made to feel so welcome, despite being the only man on the team! Would definitely do it again."

“It’s no exaggeration to say that stewarding the Jane Austen Festival has changed my life. I’ve made so many great friends, have grown so much in confidence and have found where I belong. It’s a wonderful experience and I keep coming back year after year!"

“Stewarding the festival was one of the most incredible experiences in my life. It was like going through a door to a different magical world. A world full of kindness, beauty and new friends to know.’"
Julia, Spain

"Ten busy days of fun and interesting events, making new friends for life, getting to explore the beautiful city of Bath, while wearing Regency dress, and all in the name of one of the greatest English writers ever!"
Tasha, Australia
