More than 250 volunteers from Team London used their local expertise and knowledge of the artworks to help make Lumiere London a success.

Working with London's major sporting and cultural events

Our Major Events Programme supports large scale sporting, music, arts and cultural events in London by harnessing the unique value of volunteering.

We provide volunteers who reflect the diversity of London and are happy to share their knowledge, pride and enthusiasm on behalf of the Mayor of London, helping to create an unrivalled welcome. In turn, we support Londoners to be active citizens by offering the most exciting and varied volunteering opportunities across the capital’s programme of major events.

Since 2012, Team London has brokered over 8,000 volunteering opportunities for over 80 Major Events, supporting Lumiere London, London Marathon, Great Fire 350, Prudential Ride London and the 2017 World Para Athletics Championships and IAAF World Championships.

Volunteer Feedback

I felt a sense of pride knowing that my contribution would help make the event a success.  It was the first time I had volunteered and I was impressed with how well it was organised.  I will definitely be applying for more volunteering roles with Team London.

I am proud to have been a part of London 2017 and I have come away from the experience knowing I made a difference. Many new friendships have been cemented and amazing memories made. THANK YOU!

On the IAAF World Championships 2017

This was my first-year volunteering at the iconic event and I loved every minute of it, to be out helping people on the night either with their own ticket access or helping others make other plans it was great to be a part of. I really felt like I was involved in the event and will be back for years to come.
