Volunteer for Brockley Max

Brockley Max is a non-for-profit festival put on by local people for local people, so it can’t happen without your help!


This is a very special year for Brockley Max as we will be celebrating its 20th birthday. We are very excited to bring the festival back with nine days filled with community events ranging from exhibitions, art trails, poetry events and our first live streaming Opening Night! The festival will  go a lot more digital this time with plans of having some outdoor events organised in a Covid safe way.

We are looking for volunteers to be part of this special edition of Brockley Max; to see a different side of the festival, be part of a great team, try something new and be involved in your local community.

You will be contributing your time to help make the festival run smoothly, for example, by handing out flyers, setting up outdoor events, being a festival ambassador or raising funds. You’ll be an essential part of Brockley Max, helping to create a special atmosphere, perfect for those looking for work experience or meeting new people.

In return for your time, you will receive support and supervision, a highly sought after Brockley Max T-shirt,  a special 20th birthday edition’s tote bag as well as travel expenses and a reference letter if required.  In addition, you'll receive a Lewisham Local Contributor card giving discounts at businesses all over Lewisham. And if that is not enough, you will work with a great and experienced team of local people, make new friends, connect into the community and have a great time!

You can volunteer as much or as little of your time as you like; there’s plenty of variety and flexibility. If you have a spare few hours in May and June and can help out with, here’s more information on our opportunities.


Apply via our Volunteer Form and our Volunteer Co-ordinator, Emma will be in touch soon. If you have any specific questions please email volunteer@brockleymax.co.uk

We always welcome new Board members to support the direction of the festival.

And for 2021, we need help in particular with:
· Press - are you a press officer who'd like to manage our print press outreach?
· Event scheduling -  Our events manager needs support  with festival event planning and delivery.
· Admin tasks - If you'd like to learn how a festival is scheduled or already know and want to help Moira, the director, please get in touch.

In 2019, amazing groups such as The Three C's charity and the Police Cadets helped us- get in touch if your organisation could be part of Brockley Max.

In return Brockley Max has partnered with Lewisham Local for their volunteers to be eligible for our free Community Contributor Card, giving them access to great deals from local independent traders across Lewisham!
