Get involved

Ramsgate Arts runs its annual arts festival and other events throughout the year as funding and opportunity allow. Running the organisation, its planning, administration and promotion is all done by the voluntary team. Only the artists, facilitators and other costs for actual events are funded.

We currently run the Ramsgate summer arts festival (A Summer Squall has become the Ramsgate Festival) and Looping the Loop festival.

Our events are organised by our core group of volunteers with people contributing whatever they can.   We are not a closed shop and we don’t have any paid workers, so we need your contribution – however small – it will all go to creating something really vital for the area. If you have a little time, energy, enthusiasm or money – however little – we can find a role for you.  You can join the team and be reassured that your contribution will be valued.

Ramsgate Festival: We always need lots of helpers now and over the festival period, as well as to set up and get out. Our current festival is 21-30 July 2018 and we’ll need stewards and event helpers and people to answer the phones and give out leaflets and information. It could be you! If you would like to get involved in any of these ways, then please contact us.

Volunteering: we always need extra help ‘on the day’ at events, or for general administration and planning. We are also keen to adopt new Trustees, so please email
