York Beer Festival Staffing Form

The York CAMRA Beer and Cider Festival is staffed by volunteers. If you would like to join us please read the information on this page and fill out our volunteer staffing form. Camping is available for volunteers only.

We have a wide range of roles available, before, during and after the festival and need people with a wide range of skills. No experience is necessary as full training will be provided.

Please be prepared to work in other areas besides bar work for at least part of the time (but if you really don't want to work somewhere, no one will try to force you). We struggle to recruit sufficient volunteers in those areas (e.g. stewards, entrance) and these are as essential to the festival as serving the drinks.

Take down is also poorly supported which makes it harder, longer and more stressful for the volunteers we do get. Please consider helping with this, particularly on the Sunday afternoon.

T shirts are available for all staff who register before 23rd August. We will try to provide a T shirt for people who register after this date but cannot guarantee this.

Before you fill in the staffing form please can you download and read the information for staff available at this link.

Once you have read the information the staffing form is available here.

If you would like to camp at the festival (staff only) then please fill in the form here. Please only fill in one form per tent / caravan.

CAMRA also produce a Heath and Safety handbook which is available here.

We look forward to seeing you at the festival!
