As a volunteer

Volunteer at The Melbourne Magic Festival


This year, the Melbourne Magic Festival Hub venue is at “Arrow on Swanston”. We have performances and events onsite from July 3 to July 8. All volunteers will be working at our Hub.

As a volunteer you will help to make the Melbourne Magic Festival engaging and welcoming, either as a Greeter in Magic Central, welcoming patrons, or as an Usher in one of our four hub theatres (Houdini Theatre, Cardini Cabaret, Slydini Showroom, and The Close Up Gallery).

There will be some Training and Orientation which you will be required to complete in order to be a volunteer at MMF. Details will be sent to you after you have applied.

As part of the Festival’s Child Safe Policy, all Hub Volunteers must be over 18 by the time of their first shift.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator Em Chandler via



Not only do Volunteers get to help make the Melbourne Magic Festival a success, but they also:

  • Receive a 50% off pass for TWO to visit THE LANEWAY THEATRE valid for 12 months.
  • If you do TWO or more shifts and you will receive a VOLUNTEER PASS entitling you to free admission to any Hub shows during the Festival (subject to vacancies after all paid guests are admitted).
  • If you do FIVE or more shifts and you get to keep your MMF T-SHIRT as a souvenir
  • And the volunteer who does the most shifts will receive MMF VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR award and a gift certificate!
