The Birmingham St. Patrick’s Festival and Parade have put a call out for Float Stewards who make sure nobody gets on and off a float during the parade, to Walking Group Stewards who ensure that health and safety is upheld throughout the day. Chief Steward roles are also required, these volunteers will be needed for the whole day and are in charge of liaising with the emergency services,.

Chair of the Birmingham St Patrick’s Festival, Anne Tighe, said: “Every year the local community come out in force to offer their time to help support the Parade and be part of days events as a walking group or volunteering on the day as stewards.”

“We are really grateful to everyone who helps make the St. Patrick’s day parade such a key calendar event in supporting us, submissions are open for volunteers, floats, bands and artists to register their interest in being part of the day.”
