Like all festivals Willowman need keen volunteers to help run things smoothly. In exchange for working two 4 hour shifts over the weekend volunteers will receive free entry to the festival. General volunteers, car parking helpers, and campsite wardens are needed.
Willowman Festival has fun for all the family, with a bouncy castle, face painting, junior arts and crafts, plus a funfair too, and all kids activities are free unless stated otherwise.
