Be a part of the trail – volunteer with us today!

Rocket Round Leicester is EPIC in scale and this is where we need your help! The trail is a unique opportunity for the city, bringing a chance to restore colour and conversation like never before. Can YOU volunteer and be a part of the action?

Our mission is to recruit a team of volunteers to help us reach for the stars this summer. From assisting in our Trail Hub Shop for a shift or two, to being a part of our Ground Control Street Team – your support makes a world of difference.


Join us in our Trail Hub Shop (Highcross, Leicester):

Develop star-studded customer service skills and retail experience as volunteers will be based in the Rocket Round Leicester Trail Hub Shop. Located in Highcross shopping centre, you can assist in selling merchandise, serving customers and sharing information about LOROS and the incredible trail. At the heart of the event, volunteers will be responsible for creating a clean and tidy environment, restocking merchandise and resolving customer queries with a smile.

The Trail Hub shop will be open for the duration of the trail, which lasts for 10 weeks. We’re looking for friendly and organised individuals to volunteer for the occasional shift or regular weekly slots between 19th July – 26th September.

Shift patterns (may be subject to slight change): Monday to Saturday 9:30am – 1:30pm and 1:30pm – 6:00pm. Sunday 11:00am – 2:00pm, 2:00pm – 5:00pm and 11am – 5pm.


Volunteer and be a part of our Ground Control Street Team (across the city):

Excited for the trail? Passionate about LOROS? Share that enthusiasm with the city and become a key part of Leicester’s biggest ever public art event! We’re looking for confident and spirited individuals to be the public face of LOROS and Rocket Round Leicester as part of our Ground Control Street Team. Here, you’ll soak up and share the trail atmosphere by talking to trail-goers, selling trail maps and being a point-of-contact for trail questions. As a trusted member of the Ground Control team, you will encourage engagement with the sculptures (likely to include selfie taking!) and keep one eye on the sky and the other on keeping our Rocket sculptures in star-studded condition by reporting any damage.

Shift patterns (may be subject to slight change): Monday to Friday 10am – 2pm and 2pm – 6pm. Saturday 9am – 1pm, 1pm – 4pm and 4pm – 7pm. Sunday 10am – 2pm and 2pm – 6pm.


Join us in our mission to raise funds for LOROS and bring colour and conversation back to the city.
