All volunteers who’ve previously worked at the festival have been emailed a link to the 2017 steward’s application form – if you haven’t received it (it was sent in December), please check your junk email. If you can’t find it, don’t worry – please just download and fill in the form (details below). Please return your form immediately – do not hesitate to complete and submit the form to us via email or Royal Mail, as many volunteer teams fill up fast these days and you may miss out on your desired place.
From early March onwards we will process ALL the returned applications so that any remaining places can be made available to new stewards. Please note that specific team places cannot be guaranteed but we’ll do our best.
If you have not stewarded at SFF before, we hope you will consider joining our team of experienced stewards. You need to be reliable, confident, and like working with others. As a volunteer steward you can get involved with all sorts of things including site set up and break down, ticket checking, campsite, traffic control, venue management, artists’ reception and litter picking etc.
We often have vacancies for our Pandemonium! Crew
Our children’s festival Pandemonium! is a really important part of Shrewsbury Folk Festival, ensuring there is entertainment for all the family. We have a team of enthusiastic volunteers to assist in the children’s workshops and activities to ensure that everyone gets the best experience and the whole weekend runs smoothly. Previous experience working with children, enthusiasm, patience and a sense of creativity would be a bonus.
How to apply
The stewards’ application form (including Pandemonium! crew) is available to download here.
New applications will NOT be processed until April but please don’t hesitate to send in your forms early. The application form is an editable pdf.
Editing a PDF document the easy way
Open the document and top right of your screen you’ll see Tools, Fill & Sign, Add Text. Options vary depending on which version of Adobe Acrobat you’re using, but most users will typically find tools for adding text and signatures. You can print and post (snail mail) it back to us or you can email it to email@example.com.
