Once again we are looking for over 120 willing volunteers to take on the full range of jobs at the festival. Without you we could not have the festival.Here is a volunteer form or one in RTFformat which includes an explanation of job roles. PLEASE fill in ALL the details on the form. It is important that we have this chance to check and update our records. You can return it either as an email attachment or in the post.We welcome all help. In particular we very much look for help in the setting up and taking down period so do consider if you could be available. We are also looking at anyone who might be interested in helping Team Tango with stewarding duties. Finally, there are a couple of periods where we also need more volunteers. These are Friday evening (our busiest time) and Saturday daytime. Therefore even if you cannot help on other days but can on these then that would be very much appreciated.If you haven’t worked at a Beer Festival before, why not give it a go? Although working at the festival is hard work, it can also be fun with the chance to engage with our many visitors to the festival. Volunteers are allowed free beer (within reason) and also receive food vouchers to use at the food concessions at the festival. You will get training for any role you choose and there will be plenty of experienced people about.Please think about volunteering, you will be made most welcome!
