  1. I also sent you guys this message via email, but wanted to ensure you got it so I am posting it here also, I would really appreciate a reply as son as possible, thanks:

    Hello,
    My name is Ross Sullivan and I applied to volunteer at Maker Faire on Saturday the 25th and Sunday the 26th of April, however I have yet to receive a reply. I am emailing you as I need confirmation that I can attend and volunteer for the Faire for both the days, as my application stated. I have bought train tickets to attend and would appreciate if you could confirm whether or not my application has been accepted, as I currently don’t know where I stand. I am 16 years old and very much looking forward to contributing at the Faire, and have made arrangements to do so in advance.

    Awaiting your reply,
    Ross Sullivan

  4. Hi,

    We’d be happy to do some launch promotion on Makerflux. We’re planning to come up again for the weekend to promote the event and interview makers.

    Please feel free to get in touch if you have something we can shout out.

    Steven,

      Thats great thanks! We’ll be putting most of the information about Makers and such here on the website, but if you do want more information about anything then feel free to email me on chris(.)snowden(at)life(.)org(.)uk and I’ll do my best to help.

      Thanks

  5. I am 15 years old and from Newcastle! I would love to be one of the friendly faces of Maker Fairer, introducing people to the event. I am very confident, outgoing and friendly. I have also had experience working in a cafe so I would feel very comfortable doing the job :)

    • Hi Zara,

      We’re not recruiting for volunteers yet, but we will be soon! So keep an eye out for when the call for volunteers comes up and sign up for it!
