PBF 2022 Volunteers Required
As we start moving into Spring it’s time to start thinking about staffing the Beer Festival. As with all CAMRA festivals in the UK we are totally dependent on our core of VOLUNTEER STAFF to ensure the continued success of the festival and our ability to serve everyone in a reasonable time with help from our knowledgeable staff. There are dozens of different jobs from festival build, through to the festival operation and on to the festival take down that need to be covered, not the least of which is having sufficient bar staff available throughout the festival. This is an area where we would encourage volunteers to step forward and help us achieve our target of around 300 beer festival staff for this year’s festival. We are pretty much open to the public for 12 hours EVERY day for FIVE consecutive days and need sufficient bar staff to cover two 6 hour periods each day from 12 midday to 6 pm and then from 6 pm to midnight. Yes, you get breaks, yes, you will be offered subsidised food, yes, you will be rewarded with some free drinks and yes you will meet some amazing co-workers. Please, if you are able, consider Friday and Saturday evenings as these are our busiest times. Our Volunteer Form offers you a range of different areas of skills/expertise but essentially the more accurately you can fill out the form, then the better we can look after you on site and make sure you are in a comfortable working environment. Peterborough Beer Festival would prefer that all of our volunteers are CAMRA members, but this is not feasible or mandatory. We are quite happy to take on non-member volunteers, providing that they are sponsored by a current CAMRA member. All is clear on the Volunteer Form.
Please do help us to make this year’s festival the success it deserves to be by offering us as little, or as much of your time as you are able, thanks. Here's the link:
