Stewarding at Ely Folk Festival

Our team of around 200 volunteer stewards are the backbone of Ely Folk Festival. Without them it just couldn’t happen. We are very pleased that so many of those who stewarded at the 2020 and 2021 festivals have been in touch with us to say that they would like to rollover their applications and steward at the 2022 festival. A huge thanks to you. 

We are going to keep the steward application process open so, if you are interested in stewarding at the 2022 festival, read on….
Have a look at our note about Being at Steward at Ely Folk Festival which sets out stewarding essentials, the range of stewarding duties available and details about how to apply. You’ll spot a common theme in the Useful Skills lists – friendly and helpful – we aim to ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable festival that is memorable for all the right reasons, and you’ll play a key part in that. Being a Steward 2022[15657]
