Cotswolds Beer Festival - Volunteer Sign up!
All of us at Postlip are forever grateful for the dedication of our lovely Cotswold Beer Festival volunteers!
If you would like to help this year (our 42nd!) please fill in the form below (or send good-ol'-fashioned email responses
Dates: Friday 20 - Sunday 22th July 2018.
As always it’s a great atmosphere and in return for your sterling efforts we will be offering the usual goody bag with beer tokens.
There are 3 sessions in total
Fri, 20 July - Evening session - 4:30pm - 12-1am
Sat, 21 July - All-day session - 9:20am - 10:30pm
Sun, 22 July - Lunchtime session - 9:20am - 4:30pm
Volunteers are usually asked to work for no more than 2 hours straight (we call this a
). And you might do 2 or 3 shifts per
, with breaks between shifts.
And yes, you read it right, this year there we are running an all day session on Saturday! Whilst this may mean less familiar shift patterns, it also means an early(ier!) night on Saturday for socialising. Or maybe falling onto a sofa with a foot spa!!
So the main things we’d like to know at this stage, should you fancy joining and helping us this year are:

How many are there of you? (coming on your own or with friends?)
Will you have children/babies in with you?
if so we'll make sure at least one member of your group free to do childcare in any given shift

*Please note, if you can do the first or last shifts of each session, you won’t be able to use the CBF coach service
**Vehicle management and stewarding includes directing people to and from their cars, help with turning coaches and general stewarding. We ensure those experienced with coach turning at the festival are in lead position for that.
†The barbecue includes cooking (burgers, bacon, sausages and onions) and serving food for our lovely punters.
