Would you like to be a part of one of the world’s most dynamic and adventurous cultural festivals?

We couldn’t run MIF without the dedication, energy and enthusiasm of our amazing volunteers. From helping our in our city-centre offices to greeting the public at our events, our diverse and supportive community of volunteers are one of our greatest assets – passionate about the arts, the Festival and our city.

If you’d like to be a part of this community, helping us to stage the Festival while learning new skills along the way, you’re in luck – we’ll soon begin recruiting volunteers for MIF19. We’ll be looking for up to 500 people to fulfil a variety of roles in the run-up to and during the Festival, which takes place 4–21 July 2019.

For more information on how and when to apply, check this page in early 2019 or look out for an announcement on Facebook or Twitter. In the meantime, if you have any questions about volunteering at MIF, please email volunteering@mif.co.uk or call the team on 0161 817 4500.
