Be part of the action!
The Dartmoor Folk Festival couldn’t happen without its team of enthusiastic volunteer stewards.
Volunteer stewards are a vital part of the Festival’s organisation. We warmly welcome new stewards as well as the return of those who have been helping out for many years and become real friends of the Festival. Stewarding is a great way to experience the Festival. It’s good fun, with a mixture of lovely people and you get to be part of the team that puts together a truly memorable event.
We always try to take account of your preferences, but the more flexible you can be the better. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate everyone who wants to be a steward, so contacting us early is a good move.
What we offer
In exchange for your time (roughly 8-10 hours) we will provide one weekend ticket with camping and all the support you need to do a great job, and help our customers have a safe and fun Festival! Due to the way the rota works, your duties may be split into different amounts per day but the total over the weekend will be about 8 hours. All stewards must be at least 18 years of age.
If you want to join our happy band of helpers please fill out the form and click on the link at the bottom of the page. (Please note that each person must complete a separate form.) Our stewarding coordinator will then contact you as soon as possible.
What might you do?
The main areas in which we will need help include: site set up, venue doors, checking tickets, giving information, car parking and campsite. The way we try to work as a Festival is that, when you are stewarding, you are still part of the events. For example, door stewards are inside the venue rather than outside behind a closed door!
Please spread the word. If you have friends who would like to volunteer then please ask them to fill out the form and join the team.
All stewards must provide a valid email address and contact phone number. Please take a few minutes to read through our TERMS & CONDITIONS before completing your application form below. If you require any more information not covered here, please email us at [email protected]
