Morecambe’s First Beer Festival seeks volunteers

The Lunesdale branch of the Campaign for Real Ale is organising the first ever Morecambe Beer Festival, aiming to present fifty real ales plus ten ciders in tip top condition, served with proper food and live entertainment at most sessions. But they need some help running the event in August.

"We’re holding the event in the recently reopened and iconic Winter Gardens in Morecambe," they tell us. What better venue to sample some of the country’s finest beverages.

The event will run from Thursday 23rd August until Saturday 25th August but in the run up to that they need help, loads of it. On Monday 20th all the beers, glasses, bar, cooling system and so on arrive at the Winter Gardens and the team need assistance putting them in place.

"It will be a long hard day and the more volunteers we can get, the easier it will be," says Festival Co-ordinator George Palmer.

At each of the sessions CAMRA will also need about 20 staff (including the committee members). Volunteers will get a beer allowance and some food.

If you can help out at any of these sessions you’ll have to be there an hour before and help with clearing up afterwards would be appreciated.
