AS PASSIONATE ABOUT BEER & CIDER AS US? HELP MAKE OUR FESTIVAL HAPPEN!
Our Steel City Beer & Cider Festival is a popular annual celebration of traditional real ales, international craft beer and artisan cider accompanied by street food, live music and more – all set within the incredibly atmospheric Kelham Island Industrial Museum. It is organised, run and staffed by volunteer CAMRA members who all come together to put the event on to share their passion for good beer and/or cider.
We are now recruiting volunteer staff. Although it is unpaid work there are perks of course – you get in for free and get to try the draught beer and cider for free; you may also even get a free staff t-shirt!
Volunteers are required on site from Monday morning onwards to help with the build and set up of the festival, staff it when we are open Wednesday to Saturday and help take it all to bits and transport the kit back to storage on the Sunday.
There are a variety of roles available staffing the festival whilst it is open for business – not just the obvious serving drinks on the bars but also working on admissions, selling beer tokens and programmes, hosting the games, promoting CAMRA membership, working on the glass return desk (including glass washing), cellar work, health & safety support, administrative and financial roles, sign writing and more.
Although volunteering at the beer festival can be hard work at times, it is also fun and generally quite rewarding.
If you’d like to help out, please keep an eye out for the staffing form coming soon on our website, sheffield.camra.org.uk/festival.
