Join our Team

Did you know that the Wells Food Festival relies on volunteers to run? We have a dedicated committee that works hard behind the scenes, but we also have a great bunch of people who help on the day – without whom it just wouldn’t happen!

We’re a friendly and passionate bunch and are always looking for people to join the team – whether it’s on a regular basis or just for a couple of hours on the event day. Read on to find out how you can help.

Event Day

Welcoming and orientating traders
Setting up and breaking down communal areas
Marshalling trader traffic
Stewarding – marquee gatekeeping/patrolling

Lead Stewards

The Lead Stewards oversee a specific area on the event day, managing the area’s stewards and troubleshooting. You would likely understudy an existing Lead Steward for your first event.


If you have experience and skills in any area of event management or are passionate about food, why not join the committee and help to organise the festival?

We’re a great team to be a part of, as confirmed by one of the volunteers at last year’s festival:

We thoroughly enjoyed the ‘buzz’ and the experience of being involved on the day and were impressed with the level of organisation and planning involved in pulling all the volunteers together to make the day run like clockwork.
