Want to get involved again in EYF 2018?

Let us know if you want to participate again in exchange for some cool perks! We always try to create a rota that distributes hours fairly and keeps everybody's time commitment as low as possible to leave plenty of hours to let you enjoy EYF. Simply fill in the form below and we will then create a draft rota. Based on that we will then ask for final commitment for the big weekend. It helps us plan greatly, if you confirm ALL time-slots during which you could possibly participate. If you would like to be part of EYF 2018, please return the form below by Friday, 15th December 2017.

Here's what we offer in return for your help:

  • Weekend Festival ticket for you and a nominated friend
  • Early access to the marketplace for you from 9am alongside class students (general public gets in from 10am) on all three days
  • Copy of our book when it's available (in autumn 2018)
  • M&S sandwiches for lunch
  • Ticket to the evening party on Friday including dinner and the option to buy one additional ticket for a friend.
  • Invite to the new Thursday evening event at the Corn Exchange (details tbc)
  • Designer - lead class after the festival (date/designer tbc) 
  • Christmas Party invite for 2018 ;-)

We will provide M&S sandwiches for lunch for all helpers on the rota during that time. To help us decide mix of fillings, click any options that apply to you.
T-Shirts
We are currently looking into getting new t-shirts and so we can gauge which sizes to order, could you let us know your chest-size in inches? We will order more of all sizes, so there's enough flexibility to go up/down a size, but it helps us to gauge how many to order.
Do you still have the original volunteer t-shirt? *
Please only answer "yes" if the t-shirt still looks ok, it fits and you would be comfortable wearing it. We know they are getting on now! :-)
Who should get your additional ticket?
Every helper receives an additional weekend ticket to pass on to a friend or family member. If you know already who you would like to pass your extra ticket on to, please let us know here and we will send the e-ticket to this person in January. If you haven't decided yet, leave the field blank and we'll give you a wristband in February at the helper meeting.
