We need a small army of volunteers to help with the festival by stewarding. This year we have all the volunteers we need. If you are interested in getting involved next year then read on.
What we offer
We offer a full weekend ticket + free camping in exchange for two 4 hour stints of duty. All stewards must be 18 or more years of age.
What we need
In order to run the festival successfully we require a number of volunteer stewards to provide the back-up to the folk festival committee on the days of the festival. The main areas in which we will need help are:
- Site Crew Team – Generally available to do all the setting up of fences, seating etc. Busy times will be on the Thursday and Friday during the day, and on the Monday. We are now offering the opportunity for some site crew to work both shifts on the Monday leaving the rest of their weekend free. If you are interested please make a note in your application. (Please note, work will involve manual labour which may be inside or outside. Appplicant must be fit and able).
- Venue Team (Concert Marquees, Dance Marquee, Childrens’ Marquee, Village Hall, Workshops) – Admission Stewards & Safety Stewards. (there may be light cleaning activities) – normally the most popular and will therefore be full very quickly.
- Car Parking Team – Throughout the weekend from 1pm Friday to 5pm Sunday. Busiest time will be during the day Saturday (working outside, please bring clothing appropriate for the weather).
- Camping Team – From Thursday throughout the weekend (working outside, please bring clothing appropriate for the weather).
We do have some site crew opportunities on the Wednesday before the festival, or all day shifts available on the Monday in the clear up. If you are fit and able and want to get your duties all done outside the festival running time tell us about it in the comments box on your application.
All Stewards must have a valid e-mail address and contact phone number.
If you have read all this and fancy becoming part of the team for 2018 then we normally start recruiting around December. Remember, the earlier you apply the more likely we can give you the shifts you want.
