Volunteers needed for Workers Beer Company at upcoming festivals

It’s that time of the year again, when we can put in for volunteer places at various festivals through the Workers Beer Company. As a volunteer behind the bars you get free entry to the festival, a couple of drinks when your shift is over, and when you are not working (shifts are usually six hours long) you can enjoy the music and the atmosphere of the festival. The money from members working at these events goes to the branch and members decide how it gets spent. Below are the events available for this year.

If you are interested in taking part please email lauren.edwards@unitepsbranch.org with your name, contact details, Unite membership number and which festival/s you want to go to by Friday 27 April . First priority is given to branch members but if you have partners or friends who would be interested in going too please let me know. Please be sure you can go to the festival, as last minute cancellations can’t be replaced with other volunteers and it will count against your participation in future years:

  • Women Chainmakers Festival 9th June – Sandwell W. Midlands (no camping)
  • Crystal Palace Garden Party 23/24th June (no camping)
  • Latitude 12/15th July (travel to site 11th July, leave 16th July -camping)
