Newstead Arts Hub and Newstead Live have jumped at the opportunity given by Regional Arts Victoria to present Fred Smith and Band’s amazing Sparrows of Kabul concert (2 June) plus a songwriting workshop (3 June – for students in Year 9 upwards). Both organisations are run by volunteers. We need your help to make these events happen!

There is lots to be done in the lead up to these events, and we will need help on the night of the concert too.

In the lead up, we need to get the word out. Posters need to be put up and flyers distributed. We need to get the word out on social media, in local newspapers and on the radio.

On the day, we need people to help set up the chairs in the hall; check in our ticket holders; and a stage hand would be most welcome.

Volunteers should be over the age of 15, and for the younger folk among you, this is a chance to get behind the scenes of a fully professional event, presented by one of Australia’s most highly regarded singer-songwriters.

Even on the night, most of the work is done before and after the concert or during the interval, so you will have the opportunity to experience this spellbinding and uplifting show.

Register your interest in volunteering on our simple online form and we’ll get back to you soon!
