The Cookbook festival is looking for volunteers. They want people to help out from Wednesday 12 through to Sunday 16 September.

They need people to help supervise cookery demonstrations and events in the marquees and at the street party in Turnham Green Tarrace on the Sunday, when the road will be closed to traffic.

Expect to be lifting, carrying, washing up and helping out in the kitchen preparing tasters for the demonstrations. Not exactly glamorous work, but Lucy Cufflin, co-organiser, promises the atmosphere will be “jolly” and promises excellent snacks to keep you going.
