Flowerfest Volunteer

Castlebank Park, Lanark, ML11 9EG

10th - 12th May

  • Help Flowerfest run smoothly over the 3 days of the festival
  • Enjoy the fresh air, meet new people, learn new skills
  • Support Lanark Community Development Trust, the festival's organisers


In May 2018, the first ‘Lanark Flowerfest’ was hosted in Castlebank Park. Coordinated by Lanark Community Development Trust, the 3-day event celebrated Lanark and the Clyde Valley’s horticultural heritage, local culture and everything fantastic about flowers.

Flowerfest will bloom again from 10-12 May 2019. Event volunteers are sought to help with the smooth running of the event. Volunteer duties will be varied, but will mainly involve greeting visitors and dealing with ticket payments / wristband issuing. 

Volunteer shifts will be available in 2 hour blocks across the three days of the festival. 

Volunteers will be given a Flowerfest ticket valid for the date of their volunteering session so they can enjoy the event once they have finished their volunteering shift.
