Volunteer to help

  • We need volunteers to help us in many capacities.
  • Wine pourer at a tutored tasting: involves turning up an hour earlier than customers to help set up the room. helping to pour the wine and then helping to clear the room of glasses and tidy up. (The advantage is that you can taste the wines too) (needed from 6.30pm - 10.30pm on required evenings)
  • Helping with schools activities: We can only accept volunteers who have been CIB checked but this would involve helping setting up the Guildhall for large groups of children to have a cookery workshop and then between 3 such sessions, making sure everything gets washed up and set up for the next set. (needed from 9.30am - 3.30pm on required days)
  • Helping at the Information Point: involves working with a festival member of staff to answer enquiries and be a 'Go for' should equipment / literature need moving between venues. (needed between 9.30am and 4.30pm on some days)
