All CAMRA festivals are staffed by dedicated and invaluable CAMRA members, and the Great British Beer Festival is no different. Taking part in a CAMRA festival is a great way to meet new people, learn new things and expand your CV, all the while bringing the festival to life for our visitors.

We value each and every member of the festival team, and offer a range of incentives to each volunteer:

Free Festival glass
Free Festival guide
Free entry to a session at the festival
Use of the free staff bar The Volunteer Arms, and discounts on beers available to the public
Subsidised canteen
Discounts on some of the stalls within the festival
Free accommodation or a subsidy on hotel nights, depending on hours worked

If you would like a paper copy of the staffing form to complete please email staffing@gbbf.org.uk with your details and they will send one out to you.

If you have any problems or questions about volunteering, then email staffing@gbbf.org.uk where Laura or Liz will be happy to answer your query.
