Name of Event: Taste of London: The Festive Edition

Volunteer Role: Taste of London: The Festive Edition is the perfect way to kick off the Christmas season in style. Between 15 – 18 November 2018 East London’s stunning Tobacco Dock will be transformed into a foodie wonderland brimming with London’s tastiest food, festive tipples, a fantastic chef line-up, loads of masterclasses to get involved with and all the shopping you need to get set for the Christmas season.

We will be running a pop-up restaurant and this year the theme is tacos! We are pleased to present five unique recipes, each designed by one of our brilliant chefs - Hus Vedat, Jack Stein, Jason Atherton, Romy Gill and Tom Hunt.

We are currently looking for volunteers to work with us at the event to help raise awareness about the charity, whilst also fundraising for our lifesaving programmes around the world.

The volunteering roles include:

  • Selling raffle tickets
  • Greeting visitors
  • Running the cloakroom 
  • Handling collections

This role will require you to actively engage with members of the general public and other volunteers and so it would be a great opportunity to develop communication and teamwork skills.

Volunteers will be provided some time on the day that they volunteer to use their staff wristband to explore the rest of the festival. We will pay for travel within London zones 1-6, and will also provide food during your shift.

Although technically Tobacco Dock is an indoor venue, it is slightly open to the elements and volunteers would be working outside some of the time, so they would need to wrap up warmly!

When: The volunteer shifts currently available are as followsThursday 15 November: 17:00-23:00, Friday 16 November: 17:00-23:00 and Saturday 17 November: 17:00-23:00

Where: Tobacco Dock, Wapping Lane, St Katherine’s and Wapping, London E1W 2SF.

Volunteer Places: Up to 20, split across the different sessions.
