2019 Amber Valley Beer & Cider Festival

Date: 26 September 2019 to 28 September 2019
Summary: Strutts Centre, Belper

This is Amber Valley CAMRA's main event of the year and to run it we need volunteers to help us out over a total of 8 days. I hope you will consider giving us some of your time and support -

Starting with collection and loading of equipment Monday 23rd September.
Setup will start Tuesday and continue Wednesday.
The festival itself will be open to the public from 12 noon - 11pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday
Take-down will commence on Sunday. NOTE: There will be no Sunday opening to the public
Concludes with the remaining take-down and return of equipment on Monday 30th September.

For volunteers helping with loading & unloading on the two Mondays, the branch will provide some food and beverages.

Please let me know if you can help, even if only for a few hours - every bit helps! We could not run this festival without volunteers generously donating their time and you will be rewarded with:

Staff tokens which can be used for beer, cider, perry or gin at the festival.
An invitation to the post-festival staff party in December.
Food voucher(s) for those working a minimum of 6 consecutive hours.

You can complete a staffing form online using the link below. If you have any problems with the form please get in touch.

Online Staffing Form

Please be as accurate as you can with times, especially if you have to leave early to catch your bus or if you will be going home at mealtimes.

Shared taxis home will be provided for those working until the end (11pm) on Friday and Saturday nights. Please note these will only be travelling a limited distance, i.e not as far as Derby or Nottingham and the like. If in doubt please ask if your destination can be included.

If you have friends or family members who are trustworthy, reliable and would like to work then please pass this on to them. CAMRA membership is not mandatory to work at the festival and we welcome members and non-members alike.
