Chorlton Beer & Cider Festival is entirely staffed by volunteers.
Generally volunteers for the main gate, tokens, stewarding, cleaning & world beers are from St Clements congregation and supporters while CAMRA volunteers work on the UK cask & keg beers and cider bar. However, you can volunteer for where you would like to work and we’ll try to accommodate your preferences.
