Great British Beer Festival Winter 2024 Volunteer Sign-up Form

Burton Beer and Cider Festival are delighted to be hosting the 2024 National Winter Ales Festival and are seeking volunteers to help with all aspects of the festival. We welcome all volunteers, even if you can only spare a few hours.

Volunteering at CAMRA festivals is great fun and most volunteers come back time and time again. Although we have many long standing volunteers, new volunteers are always welcome.  

We do anticipate a lot of interest in volunteering at this festival and whilst we will endeavour to cater for everyone we cannot guarantee we will be able to fulfill all of the time slots and tasks you specify.

Where would you like to work?

The following is the list of jobs that we have at the festival, if you have experience in an area please let us know. Anyone who does not enter a preference will generally be staffing on one of the bars and assisting with the entrance desk.

Please note the entrance desk is a vital part of the beer festival success and we need a team of enthusiastic volunteers who will be willing to oversee this important area. You may not think it’s as fun as serving beer but you get to meet all the happy punters and watch the main entertainment. We have an entrance staff ‘manager’, who will be overseeing the entrance. Our new custom built entrance stand in 2017 was a success ensuring a more comfortable environment for our volunteers. If you are unsure about what is involved or want to have a go but not for the whole shift, or if you are volunteering with a friend or family member and want to do the same job please contact us.

Whilst we will endeavour to accommodate all reasonable requests for you to work in a particular area(s) this cannot be guaranteed.

Please note you will receive training on the jobs volunteered for and support during the festival.
