Helping at the Festival

Our beer festival is organised and run by unpaid volunteers and we are always looking for more volunteers, old and new to join us. So if you would like to help out, whether for a few hours one evening or throughout the beer festival, you will be made most welcome. Don't worry, you do not need any experience. The only condition for being a volunteer is that you are a CAMRA member.
Remember, without Volunteers there would be no Beer Festival
If you can help, please visit www.camra-afrm.org.uk or email details of your availability to [email protected]
