Beer Festival 2024 - Volunteer Information

Kidderminster Beer and Cider Festival - Thurs 7th to Sat 9th November 2024

This Festival Abides by the CAMRA Volunteer Charter

The Kidderminster Beer and Cider Festival (KBCF) needs helpers! This year, the festival takes place Thu 7th to Sat 9th November.

We run entirely by volunteers. It takes organising and a large team to run it. There’s work needed to set up in the days before opening and to take everything down on the day afterwards, plus a team of bar staff and other helpers needed during each shift that we’re open.

Ideally, volunteers are CAMRA members but friends of the branch are also welcome. If you are not yet a member, consider joining to receive the year-round benefits that membership brings. Join CAMRA online here or at the Festival!

Please fill in the form below to indicate how you would like to become involved, and when you can help.
