The Main Hall can accommodate up to 1900 people and is disabled access friendly

Hot and cold food will be available from a food counter and concessionary food stalls in the Queen's Hall as will soft drinks


The Festival is run and staffed by unpaid volunteers and we are always in need more volunteer staff

But don't think that you have to work behind the bar serving the beer and cider - there are plenty of other jobs to be done

Jobs include:

Loading the stillage & preparing the beers
Preparing the stalls, putting up banners, signs & posters
Serving at the ticket and glass stall
Taking down the stillage and tidying up the hall

These are as important a job as the rest
You don't have to give up a whole day or evening - just sparing a hour would be greatly appreciated
Just tell us when you think you can help and what you think you can do

So, if you think you can help in any way then please email Ruth at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to receive a copy of our volunteers form.

We look forward to hearing from you very soon
