Volunteer at The Great Fête


Get involved and volunteer with us!

We want to make The Great Fête a truly memorable event and we need your help.

With over 196 acres of parkland and 7 acres of building, it takes a small army to keep Alexandra Palace running and open for all to enjoy. Central to our work at the Palace is our team of dedicated volunteers. Volunteers are involved in all aspects of life at the Palace, from helping maintain the award-winning Park and conducting tours to stewarding and supporting our Creative Learning team. Volunteers play a key role as they help us developing our programmes, plan for events and deliver the activities. Most importantly, they have an infectious passion for welcoming everyone at the Palace and support each other, and our community events would not be the same without them!

Be a part of The Great Fête

Volunteering at The Great Fête is an incredible opportunity for everyone, and everyone is welcomed. From supporting our Creative Learning team to welcome all the community participants, to help out at family workshops to be a team leader for younger volunteers. From getting stuck into set-up of the site, or planning for the event, to supporting the stage management of the People’s Stage, to liaising with professional and community artists, volunteering at this event can and will give you a great insight of how festivals of large scale are planned and organised. This is perfect for anyone who wants to support Ally Pally or experience the running of an event.

We do strive to support our volunteers throughout their time here at Alexandra Palace. If you are interested to help, please tell us a bit more about what makes your heart sing – we will do our best to make your volunteering experience a relevant and meangingful one.
