The Stewards of the Festival were responsible for organising the annual Festival until 1975 when this task was taken over by the staff of what is now Clergy Support Trust.

The historic title of Steward has been retained to ensure continuity and is today a means whereby supporters can demonstrate their support for the Festival and for the work of the charity.

Currently you can apply to be a steward for a donation of £50 per year for which you can choose to have your name printed in the Festival Order of Service.

There is also an opportunity (subject to space) to process at the service at St Paul's Cathedral alongside the processions of the clergy and Masters and other representatives of City Livery companies.

Please contact us to become a steward, or apply to become one when requesting tickets.

Please note: the 366th Festival has been cancelled but Stewardship will continue to be noted and accrued.
