The Creative team for the winter droving

Help us make the Winter Droving a roaring success!

We are looking for a small team of enthusiastic, fun and friendly volunteers to work with us on the day. We are looking for people that can help steward the event at various times of the day on the day (and perhaps before).


Anyone is welcome to volunteer for us providing you are 18 or over, and have a passion for the Winter Droving.

No experience necessary, you just need a friendly, outgoing personality, however if you do have special skills, such as first aid, stage management or events organisation then please let us know!


There will be variety of different jobs to do on the day, including assisting market set up, moving lanterns, welcoming visitors, providing advice on how to get around and where to go; stewarding the procession in the evening and helping with the Drovers Cup events.

You will need to be available to meet the team and do a short training/briefing session on the before,  6.00 – 7.30pm at Penrith Old Fire Station and on the day. The key times we need volunteers are from 7am- 7pm in various shifts.


By being a volunteer at the Winter Droving you will get to be part of an event which puts Penrith in the spotlight, and brings in thousands of visitors to our town, go behind the scenes and learn how this major event is run and build on your skills and experience. You will also be supporting art and culture in Penrith and helping us to make a difference locally.
