Manchester Literature Festival 2011 – Volunteer Open Evening

There’s going to be an open evening this Wednesday (13th July) for anyone who’s interested in becoming a volunteer for this year’s Manchester Literature Festival. The Poplar Tree was a volunteer at 6 events last year and had a great time – see the post a few below this one for full details.

The line up for the 2011 festival isn’t being announced until August, but it’s well worth attending the open evening to find out more about it. The organisers Jon Atkin and Cathy Bolton are really friendly and they’ll give you the complete low down on what to expect if you become a volunteer.

The meeting is being held at City Library on Deansgate from 6pm and will take place  in the Becker Room on the first floor.

Manchester Literature Festival 2011: Call for Volunteers

Last week the Manchester International Festival announced its lineup for the summer, but they’re not the only ones to get the festival bug this spring.

The Manchester Literature Festival has begun its search for volunteers to help out at events across the city in October. The Poplar Tree had a brilliant time as a volunteer at last year’s festival, and you can read about all the things it got up to by clicking on the image below. If it inspires you, visit the Manchester Lit Festival website where you can list your details and volunteer for this year’s events:
