Volunteering Opportunities

Would you like to take part in the Food and Drink Festival in a more hands on way?

Volunteering with us is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in one of Leamington’s biggest calendar events with over 25,000 people visiting the site over the two days.

Being a volunteer is a lot of fun – you get to meet new people, be part of a hard working team and of course get to sample lots of delicious food and drink!

Green News

There is a strong push towards making events greener and festivals, both large and small, have made huge strides towards reducing waste, incentivising greater sustainability and ethical sourcing.
In 2016 we’re doing our best to make the Leamington Food & Drink Festival a greener event and would like to encourage everyone to assist us in our move towards this.

We have a list of suggestions for stall holders on our Exhibitors page.

For visitors:

  • Please help our Green Steward Volunteers to recycle as much as possible throughout the weekend. Bins will be provided on site for you to recycle cardboard, cans, glass and plastics. Please read the signs carefully. For a full list of what Warwick District Council can/cannot recycling please download the leaflet here: Guide to Recycling WDC.
  • We encourage the use of public transport to the Food & Drink Festival. The Pump Room Gardens is located a 5 minute walk from Leamington Railway Station and a 2 minute walk from Parade which is served regularly by buses. The Pump Rooms has a bicycle rack for those wishing to cycle to the event. And if possible – please walk down to the Pump Room Gardens!
