Festival Town Hall Logo

Kidderminster Beer and Cider Festival - Thurs 7th to Sat 9th November 2019

This Festival Abides by the CAMRA Volunteer Charter

The Kidderminster Beer and Cider Festival (KBCF) needs your help! This year, the festival takes place in November (7th – 9th) – less than a month away!

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

If you'd like to volunteer and you're not already a CAMRA member, then you can join online here or at the festival! As a CAMRA member you have admission to the Thursday 12 - 2pm Preview session.

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