Beer Festival Volunteering

To volunteer to help at the Festival please complete the form below.

There are a variety of jobs to be filled, no prior experience is necessary as training will be provided.

During set-up we will be required to use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This will be provided, but if you do have your own safety shoes it is recommended you bring them with you as sizes are limited.

We appreciate the time and effort put in by our volunteers so as a ‘thank you’ we offer the following benefits:

  • Complimentary beer tokens – if working when the festival is open to the public.
  • Free Lincoln CAMRA polo shirt – if working more than 6 hours in total.
  • Meal subsidy – if working a shift of more than 5 hours.
  • Assistance with taxis – if working until closing time.
  • A post-festival social at the Joiners Arms on the afternoon of Sunday, 26th May.
  • Free travel on the post-festival trip

Full details of the staff benefits will be sent with your confirmation.

Your personal details remain CAMRA confidential at all times and will only be used for Lincoln Beer Festival purposes
