Celebration of Entrepreneurship

Volunteering

The Somerset Celebration of Entrepreneurship will be held at the College from Monday 15 October to Wednesday 17 October 2018. This is only the Festival’s second year. It returns in 2018, based on the success of the 2017 event for which over 5000 tickets were sold.

For new parents especially, to be a volunteer will give you the opportunity to meet and mix with other parents, while contributing to the success of the Festival. Any time you have available to support the Celebration of Entrepreneurship will be greatly appreciated.
