The team behind what is set to be the biggest free street theatre event in the UK this year is looking to recruit hundreds of volunteers to be part of the unforgettable experience.


Liverpool’s Dream will see Giants wandering the streets of Liverpool and Wirral for the final time from 4-7 October, and the team behind the spectacular are asking for around 250 people to put themselves forward for a wide variety of roles including:

Benevol Stewards

Becoming part of the human cordon which travels with each Giant. Anyone considering applying needs to be physically fit, be able to walk long distances, have a good level of stamina and be comfortable in large crowds.


Runners/Production Assistants

Flexibility is key for the role which provides vital help for the team during rehearsals and preparation for the show.


Production Drivers

People with full driving licenses are required to drive a variety of different vehicles to assist in rehearsals and the show itself.


Translators

Fluent French speakers are required to translate for the technical team.


Physiotherapists

Qualified physiotherapists and student physiotherapists required to work with the team. They will be needed across the event days. 


Media Assistants

The local, national and international spotlight will be on Liverpool and a number of people are required to assist and manage members of the media throughout the duration of the show. 


Event Ambassadors

It’s essential to extend that renowned warm Liverpool welcome to the hundreds and thousands of people descending on the region for the event. Good, friendly communicators are needed to be on hand to answer any questions or queries from members of the public.

  • Please Note: All the roles are voluntary.

The following Lilliputian position is a paid for role due to the amount of rehearsal time required and the commitment during the duration of the show: 

Lilliputians

Prepare to take centre stage as this role requires you to operate the Giants along the streets. Unsurprisingly this is a physically challenging role so fitness and stamina are essential as well as being a team player. 

Anyone volunteering needs to ensure they are available across the four event days, and some roles will require commitment of several days in the weeks running up to the event for auditions and rehearsals.
