The Cumnock Tryst is appealing for local volunteers to help with the running of their upcoming festival which kicks off next month.

The event will run from Thursday, September 30 – Sunday, October 3 with a line-up featuring acts such as Karen Cargill, Sir James MacMillan and Tenebrae.

Taking place at venues across Cumnock, this year’s festival builds on the strong community relationships built and maintained digitally over lockdown.

Volunteers undertake a number of roles including Front of House, box office duties, checking tickets and ushering audience members.

There may be other volunteer roles available, too, depending on interest and previous experience.
