The beer festival can't run without the dozens of volunteers who give up their time and energy just for the love of beer!!

We are now looking for volunteers to become involved with Paisley Beer festival. To volunteer, please use our staffing form.

Why Volunteer?

Without the work of volunteers the beer festival would not be possible. Therefore working at a beer festival is a way to help ensure that it runs smoothly. Plus, in a friendly environment, the beer festival is also a fun event for socialising.

Who Can Volunteer?

Volunteers must be members of CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale. If you are a member of CAMRA and would like to volunteer, please use the staffing form. If you are not a member but wish to volunteer, please consider joining. You can join CAMRA on their home page.

Types of Work

Festival work falls into the categories of both set-up & takedown and open work. Set-up & Takedown requires some heavy lifting and that volunteers be physically fit, while the open festival work is more varied and can involve, amongst other things, bar work, glass cleaning, ticket counters, and stewarding.

Staff Shirts

Although we will do our best to ensure that volunteers receive a staff shirt, priority will be given to those who register their intent to volunteer before 24th March and who intend to volunteer for upward of six hours during the festival’s opening hours (25th to 28th April).
