It’s that time of year again – we’re on the lookout for volunteers to help at manchester jazz festival 2022!

mjf2022 is taking place from Friday 20 May – Sunday 29 May; with events across Escape to Freight Island, St Ann’s Church, Band On The Wall, Matt & Phreds, with NQ Jazz at The Yard and Forsyth’s Music Shop – with further city-wide activity yet to be announced.

mjf volunteers play a crucial and valued role during the festival, often as first point of contact for artists and audiences. If you’d like to be part of the mjf 2022 team please see below for volunteer opportunities and role descriptions.
