Reader, meet Emma – volunteering at NFEST for the first time at our brand spanking new Festival Fizz Bar!

This year, in addition to our popular Real Cask Ale bar, NFEST is introducing something different – fabulous summer cocktails to put some sparkle in your day.

Alongside our usual range of prosecco, wines and beers the Festival Fizz Bar will offer a selection of classic cocktails like Bellinis, Gin Martinis and Mojitos, as well as new long, cooling drinks like a Pimms Sundowner (think Pimms – but with a raspberry twist).

And behind the bar you’ll find people like Emma – a first time NFEST volunteer whose parents live in Holywell.

“I’ve loved attending the Music Festival in recent years, and I’m excited to volunteer for the first time” says Emma. “It’s been a while since I’ve been behind a bar, but I’m looking forward to mixing up some creative cocktails!”

As with all other elements of the Festival, the Fizz Bar will be as environmentally-friendly as possible, with all cocktails in keep-cups and other drinks in recyclable cans. Even the Bar itself is even made from recycled materials – huge thanks to Patrick (Boggle) Quick for his handywork.

And of course, as is true for all funds generated at the Festival, everything we make goes back into the helping to run and maintain the Village Hall Trust, all year round.

We bet that you’d look great with a cocktail shaker….

If you’re 18+ and would like to join our Festival Fizz team for a 2hr shift on Festival week, please get in touch. You don’t necessarily need bar experience – professional mixologists are welcome but we’re also looking for folk to take money and help with set up and restocking.

And of course, you don’t have to stay for the whole day – you can do your shift and then head off to enjoy the rest of the music and sunshine, safe in the knowledge you’ve done a brilliant thing to support the local community.
