Our army of volunteer stewards are the backbone of the festival.
All volunteers who’ve previously worked at the festival will be emailed a link to the 2018 steward’s application form in December.
Please read all the accompanying notes carefully and return your application form immediately via email. You can, if you wish, post it to us by Royal Mail but do not do both as you may end up on two teams.
As many volunteer teams fill up fast these days you may miss out on your desired place if your application is not received early enough. 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. All applications will be acknowledged via email.
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 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 is available to download here.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any queries, please email email@example.com or call the festival office on 01743 892 800.
