CBA Festival of Archaeology – Volunteer Event Moderator

The CBA Festival of Archaeology is the UK’s largest celebration of archaeology, and in 2024 we will host the 32nd Festival from 13-28 July, this is also the 80th Anniversary of the Council for British Archaeology. The Festival is co-ordinated by the CBA and made possible by the collaboration of event organisers, large and small. These range from community archaeology groups and individuals to museum services and national organisations. In 2024 we expect there to be around 700 Festival events reaching a quarter of a million people.   

As a Festival Event Moderator, you will be helping to moderate and manage registration of Festival events on our website and respond to enquiries from event organisers. We will also be hosting our digital events A Day in Archaeology and the Twitter based #AskAnArchaeologist Day and you will have the opportunity to get involved in the delivery of these. In return, you will get the chance to develop your IT and communication skills, learn about the work of a UK-wide charity and develop your passion and interest in archaeology and heritage. You will also have the chance to attend a Festival event to meet some of our Festival organisers, see the impact of your work and be part of the evaluation process.
