Raising glasses, raising money

The Workers Beer Company runs bars at events in the UK and Ireland. We have been operating since 1986 and during this time have operated at most of the major festivals including Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds, Latitude, Longtitude, Electric Picnic and the Fleadhs.

All the frontline staff in Workers Beer Company bars are volunteers. They are from trade union branches, the labour movement, grassroots organisations, community groups and charities. For every hour they work money is donated to the organisations, campaigns and charities they support. This was, and still is, a pioneering model that both raises funds and inspires people.

In 2016 we celebrated 30 years of fundraising.
