Volunteers – the heart of our Society.
As a charitable organisation, the Society does not benefit from limitless resources and revenue. Many of our core functions would not be able to run without the dedication, hard work, energy and enthusiasm of our volunteers, particularly in bringing the Royal County of Berkshire Show to life.

Our Board of Management is also made up of volunteers giving up their spare time to help the Society achieve its objectives.

Volunteers help to support our core staff with wide ranging activities:

Day to Day at Newbury Showground

– Maintaining the Showground

– IT support

– Office administration

– Member events

During the Show

– Welcoming attendees to the Show

– Supporting various attractions and sections

– Assisting in the Cookery Theatre

– Stewarding, managing traffic flow and parking

– Selling tickets and show guides

After Events

– Clearing the Showground

– Post Show and event maintenance

– Office administration

Are you interested in volunteering with us?

By volunteering with NADAS, you will be helping the Society to achieve its charitable aims, as well as working with a fabulous team of volunteers, learning new skills and gaining new experiences, all while meeting new friends from your local community.

If you or anyone you know would like to volunteer to help, please contact: office@newburyshowground.co.uk and let us know!

In return for help and support over a Show weekend, Volunteers will receive:

Complimentary tickets to the Show – Volunteer for 4 hours or less you’ll receive a ticket for the day you work. For just 4 (or more) hours of your precious time, you’ll receive a ticket to both days and a free hot meal. You’ll also get to work with a really dedicated team of fellow volunteers who take pride in their work, make new friends and have fun along the way!

Training – while stewarding doesn’t require experience and skills, a training session is provided and is a great development opportunity to learn new skills and gain new experiences as well as meeting members of your local community.
