If you have not helped at a beer festival before, give it a go!

Helping at a beer festival is great fun and very rewarding. Volunteers are normally expected to work at least one session and will receive a staff briefing and safety briefing. There is usually some rotation of volunteers so you experience more of the festival. If you are helping on Friday or Saturday you will receive a festival staff T shirt, festival glass, programme and meal vouchers. This year volunteers who help with the Sunday take down session will be entitled to a pub meal.

You will be made very welcome and you will be able to sample the beers whilst working (within reason). If you would like to help with staffing at the festival please click here or contact David Hoggett via staffing@winchesterbeerfestival.org.uk.
