Would you like to volunteer at BunkFest in 2024? click here to register

We couldn’t run BunkFest without the help of people like you. Volunteers are at the heart of our fantastic festival, and we need hundreds to make it a big success.

We are once again on the lookout for volunteers to help us in running the festival. From bucket collecting, litter picking, stewarding, parking cars to pulling pints in the bar. If you can spare anything from a couple of hours or more either before, during or after the festival, then please follow the link where you can register your interest.

We are also on the lookout for people to help run the bar and a number of beer technicians to help manage the setting up and availability of the beer. Full training will be given, but if you fancy taking on a bit more responsibility and have previous bar experience, then you could be just what we are looking for!

More info about stewarding can be found here.

Every job is vital and we need you!

You will see below more information on the seven main areas that we need volunteers for:

  • Bucket Collecting: Taking a collection bucket around the festival (you will be asked to cover certain areas). Donations from bucket collections are essential to stage the festival and keep the festival free. (18 & above)
  • Bar Staff: You will be serving drinks to the public, taking payment for alcohol. (18 & above)
  • Bar Manager: You will be supervising the bar staff, dealing with public and bar staff queries and ensuring that the bar is running smoothly. Ideally have some bar management experience. (18 & above)
  • Beer Technician: You will be responsible for the tapping of the beer and general support to the staff who are serving the public. (please be aware that this role involves manual handling/lifting of heavy barrels, full training will be given) (18 & above)
  • Glass and Wine Sellers: We will be selling the beer and wine glasses separately to the bar and require a number of people to man the stall, this is quieter and less demanding than the bar. (16 & above with parent or guardian)
