As a volunteer

with The Melbourne Magic Festival



Volunteers are a key part in making the Melbourne Magic Festival run smoothly. They not only provide a friendly face, but they also help give our guests and patrons as an enjoyable and magical experience as possible.

Volunteering gives you event experience and skills that you can add to your resume, widens your social and professional network, and you get to see magic shows free!

In 2021 we are looking for volunteers from JULY 5th to JULY 10th. We will need GREETERS in Magic Central and USHERS in the four theatres at our Hub venue, Arrow on Swanston, 488 Swanston St, Melbourne.

Throughout the Festival there are DAY SHIFTS from 9:30am to 2:30pm and NIGHT SHIFTS from 5:30pm to 10:30pm (exact times and lengths of shifts are subject to confirmation). We are looking for 4-6 volunteers per shift.

Volunteers are required to be at least 16 years of age. Anyone under 18 will need parental permission before they can volunteer. There is no previous experience required. There will be Orientation/Training held before the Festival that volunteers must attended in order to take a shift.



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!
