Working at Hay Festival

The festival is put together by hundreds of people coming together to build the site, produce the show, welcome our guests and spread the word. If you'd like to be part of it all, please join in.

Staff jobs are advertised here and promoted through social and employment media channels.

Hay Festival Wales runs from 24 May - 3 June 2018.

Help as a steward

All the events at Hay Festival Wales are stewarded by teams of between four and ten. The main job is to make sure the audiences are safe and happy before, during, and after each event.

Stewards work shifts of three to four hours. It’s voluntary but fun and you’ll make lots of good friends.

If you are interested in stewarding at Hay Festival 2018 in Wales, please complete our online form to let us know which days you are available to help.

If you have any queries, please email Jan, our Deputy Head Steward.
