Volunteer at Big Walkies Live

Every year, volunteers play a crucial role in making Big Walkies Live happen. They assist with the setup, running and packing up of the event.

Volunteers will need to arrive at 7.30am on the day and the village will close at 2.30pm.

We'd love you to stay for as long as you can to help us with packing up the event village after the event.
