Chinese New Year - volunteering opportunity

By JForrester 13 Jan 2020

Volunteering is one of the most rewarding things you can do. It can help you gain new skills, meet new friends and support your community. UWE Bristol has an exciting and fun opportunity for you to get involved and support one of the most spectacular events in Bristol.



Bristol Museum & Art Gallery is hosting Chinese New Year - Year of the Rat on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd February 2020. UWE Bristol is one of the official sponsors of this extraordinary event.



This event is the largest in the museum’s calendar and they always have loads of different activities for volunteers to get involved with such as:



•                     Chinese culture stalls

•                     Calligraphy

•                     Paper folding

•                     Information

•                     Family crafts

•                     And…Dressing as Giant Pandas!



Lunch for volunteers will be provided on both days of the event.

We are also looking for performers for the event

Are you a singer, dancer, play an instrument, martial artist? Please let us know and we can see if we can add you to the schedule for the weekend! We are also looking for a photographer if anyone is interested.

Training and induction sessions will be on:

·         Tuesday 28th January at 10:30 pm

·         Wednesday 29th January at 3 pm

·         Thursday 30th January at 3 pm



It is recommended that you attend one of these sessions if you have not volunteered in the Bristol Museum before or if you would like to re-familiarise yourself with the building.



Please contact museum.volunteering@bristol.gov.uk to sign up or find out more. Please make sure to state that you are UWE Bristol student in your email.  Volunteers will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.
