The 2017 Crystal Palace Overground Festival will be staged from June 12 to 18.

The event was first staged in 2006 and had, after a series of successful years, outgrown the smaller locations used in the past, including Westow Park for the eclectic mix of music, comedy, dance and community entertainment. The move into Crystal Palace Park will allow the Overground Festival to accommodate nearly twice as many visitors to its week-long events, with 10,000 hoped to attend in 2017.

And that means that the organisers are keen to recruit as many volunteer helpers as possible.

“There are many ways to get involved in the festival and we respectfully ask if you can please register your interest through some short Expression of Interest forms as this will really help us manage our workload,” they say.

“We look forward to hearing from you and working together to bring about the best festival yet.”
