Our army of volunteer stewards are the backbone of the festival
Applications for 2020 stewards are now open!
Our volunteer stewards have a great time at Shrewsbury! They enjoy the benefits of an incredible 4-day folk festival programme, superb festival facilities and the opportunity to make new friends or meet up with old friends. Come and join us. As a volunteer steward you will be given a free weekend ticket, camping and car parking, and a festival souvenir programme. In return we ask you to work 16 hours (32 hours if non-festival days) on a rota basis and as directed by your team leader.
We welcome applications from volunteers who are at least 18 years old on the first day of working for the festival, who are reasonably fit and don’t mind some bending and lifting.
How to apply to be a steward
The stewards’ application form is available to download. Don’t hesitate to send in your completed form by email or post.
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.
Please email your completed application form to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you wish you can print off a copy of the form, completing it by hand, and pop it in the post back to the Festival Office (don’t do both!).
All stewarding applications will be acknowledged only by email so please keep an eye on your inbox and/or junk mail box.
