Stewards are essential for any event in creating a memorable and enriching experience for everyone. They provide helpful information points for the general public, keep the site clean, meet and greet people with a smile as they arrive at the events, help people to park their vehicles and help to keep the events safe, friendly and enjoyable.


We have a fantastic team of stewards and are looking for others to join our teams this Summer in:

Leeds, Harrogate, Ilkley, Manchester, Wetherby and Ripley Castle.

All positions are paid roles.

Steward feedback from last year:

 ‘It has been so much fun and I have met such lovely people. I have definitely made some new friends today’

 ‘I have worked so hard before but it’s been so rewarding seeing everyone at the festival enjoy themselves so much’
