Organisers of Cleckheaton Folk Festival are inviting stewards to help with the summer event.

The three-day festival runs from July 4 to 6 and includes a large parade and dances, singarounds, workshops and performances at venues across the town. A spokesman for the festival said: “We have a regular core of volunteers who come to the festival every year. But new people are welcome to apply. You must be over 18 at the time of the festival, and be willing to do six hours of duties during the weekend. In exchange for your help, you will get a weekend pass and free camping.” To apply, visit or call (01274) 945184.
