Rochford Beer & Cider Festival Programme

CAMRA MEMBERS! 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 2.5 hours during festival opening and we also need help for 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 24th 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 ku.gro.armac.ees@riahc
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 January) - free if you work shifts totalling 18 hours or more.
If you can help, please email ku.gro.armac.ees@riahc with details of which sessions you can cover on which days – the sessions are:
During opening days (Wed to Sat) the jobs we need help with are: · Real Ale Bars · Foreign Beer Bar · Cider & Perry · Craft Beer · Glass washing (glass washing mostly needed Thursday to Saturday MORNINGS)
Please let us know if you have a preference and we’ll do our best to meet it.
