Janmastami Volunteering with CVS

Every year we have the exciting opportunity to celebrate Lord Krishna’s birthday & help bring thousands of people closer to Krishna. This year we want to take things to the next level with our tent having a jaw dropping drama, lots of opportunities to meet and interact with people coming to the Manor for the festivities, Q&A slots and interactive exercises.

Janmastami will be celebrated on Friday 23rd & Sunday 25th August 2019, from morning until LATE!

If you’d like to get involved with the College of Vedic Studies activities, please fill out the below form & we will get in touch with you soon to invite you to the CVS tent training sessions & debriefs. Please note to volunteer with us you must do the Manor Health & Safety training. More details about these training sessions are at the bottom of this page
