At London Comic Con, we rely on our fantastic volunteers to help us provide an unforgettable experience for everyone who attends the show. And, of course, we also want to make sure we provide you with an incredible volunteer experience.
As a volunteer with London Comic Con, there are several different teams you may have the opportunity to join. You could work with Front of House, assisting with things like ticket scanning and access control. You may be asked to help with line control at the front entrance or in the Autograph and Photo Op areas. You might also be given a position as a stagehand assisting the Stage Manager with Main Stage events or as a runner assisting the On-Site Volunteer Coordinator and the Floor Manager with various tasks throughout the show. Not all volunteer positions are glamorous, but they are all essential to delivering an incredible London Comic Con experience.
When you’re off duty, you’ll have access to enjoy the show and you’ll also receive a commemorative London Comic Con T-Shirt.
If you’re interested in applying, please read the London Comic Con Volunteer Agreement 2023 and apply below! If you are under the age of 16, the additional Parental Waiver and Release Form can be found here.
