Volunteers Needed

We’re gearing up for the busiest time of the year and would love to have some enthusiastic volunteers for our biggest events.  Please see below for upcoming opportunities – contact victoriapark@towerhamlets.gov.uk if you are interested:

Are you creative?
We’re looking for volunteers who have a creative side to help us with our Re:Cycle Fashion Show on 22 July.  You’ll be spending the day helping children craft a fantastic outfit out of recycled materials before they strut their stuff down our catwalk.

Great Day Out: 1st August
The Great Day Out is our flagship event and is attended by over 10000 people, and the more help we have the better!  We need a number of volunteers to help with general stewarding duties, such as letting vehicles in and out of the park and helping visitors with directions and other general queries.

Halloween: 30 October
We run a special children’s event on Halloween where we open the park ‘after dark’.  We need volunteers during the day to help make the park as spooky as possible, plus other volunteers during the event itself (from about 5pm – 10pm)
Saturday 25 July | Butterfly Walk | 10.30am – 12.30pm
Learn about the lifecycles of butterflies, what they eat, where they can be found and how to identify different species. We’ll have a go at catching some butterflies using nets, and then identifying them in hand. Book a place

Sunday 26 July | Memoryscape History Walk | 10am – 12.30pm
Take a trip down memory lane and join the Community Park Rangers on a recorded audio trail around the park. Limited spaces available.  Book a place.  Meet at the Pavilion Cafe.

Saturday 1 August | Great Day Out | 11am – 4pm
A Victoria Park institution!  Truly a great day out for all the family to enjoy.  A fun-filled festival with many games and activities happening throughout the day.  Located around the bandstand.
