    If you’ve already been in touch to volunteer – thank you! If you haven’t, please do consider doing so. Everyone is welcome - you don’t need any special skills or experience – just a willing attitude and, ideally, a taste for real ale and/or cider. The more people that can help the easier and more fun it is for everyone.

    Volunteering sessions are in blocks of 3 hours during festival opening and 1 hour for set up and take down. If you can help for even one session that would be great!

    As ever, we are especially in need of fit and strong people to help with the take down on Sunday 26th as we all get rather tired by that point! You don’t have to come along for the whole of take down – even an hour would be fine.

    If you’d like to talk about what it might be like to volunteer, please do email Sue ku.gro.armac.ees@gniffats().

    The benefits of volunteering (apart from the satisfaction it brings) are:
    Beer provided at the festival
    Food provided when you work for 6 hours or more in a day
    Reduced cost to attend a post-Festival party (usually held in December or January) - free if you work shifts totalling 18 hours or more.
