Volunteering with Bram Stoker Festival

Why Volunteer?

Bram Stoker Festival is powered by an army of volunteer monsters, ghouls and ghosts, who roam the streets of Dublin City bringing to life our Gothic gathering.

Volunteers can become involved in all aspects of the festival; behind the scenes, ushering at our venues, on social media, assisting with make-up & costume, or acting as ambassadors at our events. There’s something for everyone keen to get involved, or see what it takes to bring a festival of this size to life.

We’ll host an ‘Open Coven’ Recruitment Evening when applications are live, where you can meet other volunteers, find out more about our events, ask questions and even fill out the application form there and then. Date and time will be confirmed soon.
