If you like cats why not volunteer at the Edinburgh and East of Scotland Cat Show in Musselburgh. Email: edinburghcatclubshow22@gmail.com

All Volunteer enquires please email the Show Team on edinburghcatclubshow22@gmail.com

All cat shows rely on volunteer help throughout the day. Our show on 17th September 2022 is no different. Having a sufficient number of helpers makes everything runs smoothly. While some exhibitors help when they can most volunteers do not enter the show. Previous experience isn’t required. The only qualification is you like cats! You can learn as you go and there are people on hand to guide you on the day.

For most roles helpers are required to be at venue – Queen Margaret University, Musselburgh before judging commences at 10am sharp. Exceptions might be made by prior arrangement with the Show Manager. Most volunteers arrive between 8-8:30am. Transport link information to get to QMU https://www.qmu.ac.uk/location-and-getting-here/get-to-qmu-by-public-transport/

Help in setting up the show on the Friday afternoon/evening is most welcome.

Help is always required for the following tasks on the day of the show:

  • Working on the entry door dealing with tickets and catalogue
  • Administration table – administration of classes, rosettes and trophies
  • Handing out tally envelopes to exhibitors (pen number etc.)
  • Stewarding of the vetting-in process before the show begins
  • Stewarding for judges – for individuals with previous show experience
  • Show slip runners – pinning slips to the results board
  • Distribution of rosettes• Donations for the raffle and tombola
  • General help on the day
  • Transport for judges returning to stations and airports
  • Clearing the hall after the show

Dress is casual – wear what’s comfortable. With the exception of administration workers most volunteers spend the day on their feet. The show normally finishes between 4-5pm.

Donations for the raffle and tombola are welcome from local businesses right up until the day of the show. We can arrange local collection in and around Edinburgh.
