Want to help with PANOPTICON 2019?
How old do you have to be?
You MUST be at least 18 years of age.
Are there any "perks" to volunteering?
Absolutely – subject to proper performance of all duties, each PANOPTICON volunteer will receive a free t-shirt and a copy of the event brochure. We will do our best to schedule special opportunities to have time with Guests and obtain autographs. But most importantly, you become part of our family/team, putting on arguably the best Doctor Who event in the world!
Will I be able to meet the celebrities and attend panels or autograph/photograph sessions?
Only if this does not conflict with your scheduled duties (including ‘Ad Hoc’ tasks). Because each volunteer is important to the success of our event, that role MUST take precedence over attending and participating in event activities. That said, some volunteer roles do include interaction with our celebrity guests, and offer an incredible look behind-the scenes at the event!
If Guest photo/autographs, attending panels or other event activities are your priority, Volunteering is not for you. We suggest that you instead purchase a ticket and join us an as attendee. You’ll have a blast either way!
You will need to fill out this form both to request any specific area of involvement and in order for us to assess your suitability as a Volunteer. Notwithstanding any specific request on your part, we will assign duties to successful applicants based on that information but in our complete, unfettered, discretion. PLEASE NOTE that currently we have NO guest liaison jobs to fill. Please do not ask.
