May Heydays at Evesham:   Stewards

Volunteers to steward for the festival are welcome at a reduced ticket price which includes free indoor or outdoor camping — and a great experience. The number of stewards is limited but more hands may indeed make our work lighter.

Please check again in 2023 when we will be planning the next festival and will need your help as usual.

Meg Winters stewardingAs a steward, you will be asked to work up to 3 sessions (one full morning, afternoon and evening) and help with either setting up on Friday or clearing up on Monday.  Your stewarding slots will be arranged in consultation with you, so you get to steward at events you enjoy.  While we want you to host the event that you are stewarding and look after the performers and dancers, we do not expect our stewards to miss out on the dancing.  On the contrary, we encourage them to join in as much as possible.  We believe that engaged stewards make the best stewards!

Stewards may elect to work double sessions (6) in return for a full free weekend ticket (including camping).

Stewards will receive a free T-shirt, which each year will be advertising the next year's festival, and free hot drinks in the stewards' office — bring your own mug!
