BunkFest is now firmly established as a leading event on the nationwide folk and roots music scene, with fabulous concerts, dance displays, ceilidhs, sessions, workshops, new Green Fair, Community Street Fair, and trader fair, an enormous beer festival, music on the river and a singing train. It is a major event for the benefit of communities in the town and surrounding villages. This year's BunkFest will be one of the best yet!

There is a tremendous amount of work involved in setting up BunkFest. Everyone who helps put on this festival is a volunteer and we need more!

We need volunteers to help out with the enormous number of jobs that need to be done before, during and after the Festival. Helpers can spend as much or as little time as they wish in Festival jobs, leaving as much time as they desire to go to events.
