It's coming to the time when the atmospheric and hugely enjoyable CAMRA approved and supported Rail Ale Festival is yet again approaching and I shall again be organising the staffing volunteers.  Without you the Festival would not be the success that it is and we really appreciate the time and work that you all put in.

The shifts are as last year and the bars are the same, as well as there being the CAMRA desk that needs manning. If you have a preference at which bar or the CAMRA desk, please let me know & I shall endeavour, but cannot guarantee, to place you on desired location.

The shifts will be:
Thursday 16th May:
12:00 - 17:00
18:00 - 23:00

Friday 17th May:
12:00 - 17:00
17:00 - 20:00
20:00 - 23:00

Saturday 18th May:
12:00 - 16:00
15:00 - 19:00
19:00 - 23:00

We will also require volunteers for Set Up and Take Down.  When volunteering please provide me with your T shirt size and the shift/shifts that you wish to work,

There is a slight change to that being offered to staff this year with regards to food vouchers.  Regardless of what shift/shifts that you work we will be providing hot drinks and water to all staff as well as sandwiches/rolls for all. When volunteering, if vegetarian, please inform me.

For the Helpers Outing we will be providing transport to Stockport Beer Festival on Saturday June 1st which is held at Stockport County Football Club. I shall be requesting names nearer the time.

Also all volunteers will get:
FREE entry to all the days of the Festival.
Beer allowance - includes those helping with Set Up
Festival T Shirt  (please inform me off your T shirt size when volunteering).
Transport to the Festival if required and working the first shift of each day.
Transport home if required and working the last shift of each day.
You will be able to bring in fess a +1 for each shift that you work. ( I will request names and the day that each +1 is visiting nearer the Festival).
Food and beer is provided for those helping with Take Down.

If anyone has had experience of being a bar manager at a Festival and would like to be considered for this role then please inform me.

When responding please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and not any group email address.

Please let your friends know about this as well in case they may wish to volunteer as well.
