Stewarding at Hay

All the Festival events are stewarded by teams of between four and ten. The main job is to make sure the audiences are safe and happy before, during, and after each event.

Stewards must be 18 or over and work shifts of around four to five hours. It’s voluntary but fun and you’ll make lots of good friends.

Steward applications for Hay Festival 2017 are now closed. Applications to steward at Hay Festival 2018 will open here in January.
