Volunteer Team 2023 - Broadstairs Food Festival

Meet the Teams

We'd like you to meet our multi-talented and hard-working Festival Team members, who work throughout the year, combining all their amazing skills, to make each event the best ever!


We couldn't have a festival without our volunteers who work so hard to make sure you enjoy every single moment. From selling raffle ticket, holding PopAPound buckets and directing people around the site, we rely on our extended team to make the event go off without a hitch.

Would you like to donate a few hours of your time to help us at the event? We'd love to meet you! For an informal, no obligation chat – email
