Get Involved with Ports Fest

Community Programme

Every year, we offer the community the chance to get involved with Ports Fest. This is open to all community groups who would like to showcase their talents to the public. This can be in the form of dance, theatre, music, spoken word, comedy or other art forms.

Get notified for the call out to apply to be a part of Ports Fest by signing up to our mailshot below.


Volunteering Opportunities

We rely on volunteers every year to assist at our events. We will be opening up our call to volunteers from May 2021 so check back then.


This year, Ports Fest will be held from the 2nd-4th July; many events will take place outside, and all will be run in accordance with government COVID-19 safety measures. Needless to say, the safety of our audience members, participants and artists is our number one priority.
