Summary

The EU Express Days visit local schools in our minibus, with a small group of our members and perform to the students (2 schools a day - morning and afternoon)

Detailed description

With all our sessions and activities, we need volunteers to 


  • Engage and encourage member involvement
  • Support the session leader(s) and staff
  • Get to know our members (and whoever accompanies them) - what do they like? What are they not keen on?
  • Model Electric Umbrella behaviour at all times (enthusiasm, engagement, openness)


After an initial trial period, we ask all volunteers to undergo a DBS and reference(s) check.


Leaving from the Pump House, Watford, on Mondays and Thursdays, and travelling to local schools on our Big Yellow Minibus, the EU Express Days visit local schools, with a small group of our members and perform to the students (2 schools a day - morning and/or afternoon sessions). No musical or performing experience is needed! Just a positive, 'can do' attitude


What we need help with….

  • Engaging and encouraging members
  • Supporting the session leaders in the performance and session delivery
  • Assisting with the setting up and packing away of equipment
  • Reporting any concerns to staff


You do not need to be able to do both days, or all day, but if you are not travelling on our minibus - which leaves from and returns to the Pump House - then you must be able to make your own travel arrangements.


All volunteers must be aged 18 or over
