Volunteer registration

York Beer and Cider Festival is staffed by volunteers. If you would like to join the team please fill in the on line staffing form or email if you need any more information. If you wish to camp (staff only) please also fill in the camping form (one per tent / caravan).

The staffing form will ask you for your CAMRA membership number. Please enter this and remember to bring your membership card with you.

The festival is moving to a new site, still on the Knavemsire but nearer the racecourse. This has led to a few changes for staff.

Due to the position of our camping are there is no vehicle access when the festival is open. If you arrive while we are open you will be able to park outside the site and you will need to carry your camping equipment to the campsite. If you expect to arrive in a caravan while we are open please contact the staffing manager to discuss. We will try to accommodate your caravan for the first nigh so you don’t need to move it after closing time.

For people in tents we will have on site parking but it will not be next to your tent. This is because we cannot have vehicles on the grass.

If you are not staying overnight we aim to have parking for you, but cannot yet guarantee it. There is plenty of parking on the public road near the site.

Before you fill in the staffing form please download the information for staff and volunteer handbook.

Thank you for volunteering to help at the York beer and Cider Festival and have fun!


Advance ticket sales have now finished. There are plenty of tickets for everyone who wants to attend the festival by just paying on the door.
