Volunteer Opportunities

The Rugby Festival of Culture is in its seventh year and grown in popularity year on year. Once again this year it will provide a wonderful showcase for the rich and diverse range of cultural events within the Borough of Rugby.

2017 will bring a range of art, literature, music, dance, film, food and drink to the market town between the 25th June and 16th of July.

With an event to suit everyone over the three weeks of the festival, once again Rugby will be showcasing local and national talent across the town, but we can’t do it without the help of our volunteers.

We need you!
