Merchandise Volunteers

The 2019 World of WearableArt (WOW) Awards Show takes place from 26 September to 13 October and we are looking for outstanding volunteer merchandise and Souvenir Programme sellers to help create a memorable and lasting customer experience that is out of this world and takes our audience into a breathtaking world of creativity!

The WOW Awards Show is a large scale, internationally renowned theatrical production and our merchandise and programme volunteers are an important part of our team. We are looking for volunteer team members who are enthusiastic, outgoing, customer focused and preferably have retail or customer service experience. If that is you, WOW would love to have you join our team for 2019.

When you join the WOW team you will receive benefits including an Awards Show ticket and exclusive cast and crew t-shirt; you will also benefit from being part of a unique theatrical experience; and have some fun at the same time. Our volunteer shifts are detailed in the application form linked below.

We will provide training in our sales procedures, and support as appropriate.

To register your interest in a volunteer merchandise or Souvenir Programme selling role with WOW in 2019, please apply here.
