The Best Student Life. Bristol SU

Dragon Boat Festival - volunteer at the event

Details Hide[-]

Come along to Bristol Harbourside and help out with light tasks such as showing people where to go, overseeing the people attending etc. 

This event is organised by See Change with a professional Dragon Boat Events company so they run all of the event side - we just need to oversee the general spectator attendance. 

You can help signing people onto their team sheets if you'd like to.

The teams of up to 17 people - 16 rowers and a drummer - will race against each other in heats across the day - up to 250 metre heats. Then at the end of the day there will be a grand finale!

The teams will each have a fun activity in their marquees along the harbourside - so there will be lots going on! 

The event set up will be from 8am and cleared away by around 6pm. So you can volunteer for 2+ hours within these times. If you want to stay all day we will give you lots of breaks and free food and drinks! 

And you can stop off at the Cottage Inn right on the harbour after your volunteering!
