Volunteers needed!

The Festival is staffed entirely by volunteers. If you'd like to help out, whether just for a few hours one evening or throughout the Festival, you will be made most welcome. As a volunteer you get cheap beer and food.

The printed edition of ALE No. 315 newsletter includes a staffing form, or use the Web form.

Set-up is on Tuesday 25th January (afternoon and evening) and clear-up is on Sunday 30th January.

Staffing contact.


The Club will provide hot & cold food at lunchtimes and in the evening.

The normal Club bar will also be open, with soft drinks available.
