Organisers of Devizes Carnival are looking for volunteers to make this year’s event a success.

Festival makers, as they are called, are needed for a wide range of roles including welcoming artists, working at an information stand, stewarding and market research.

Devizes Outdoor Celebra-tory Arts is holding a get together on July 3 at the Crown Centre, Devizes, at 6.30pm for people to find out more.

Jo Beal, artistic director of DOCA, said: “Festival Makers are the most important element of all our events and valued members of the DOCA team. Being a Festival Maker is a great way to gain work experience to add to a CV, give back to the community, and be part of something special.

“No previous experience is needed, and you can give as little or as much time as suits you – from two hours to the whole weekend or in the run up to the Festival itself.”

If you are interested in attending the get together call Jo Beal on 07880 239598 or email
