If you would like to be part of our BBB staff team, there are a number of jobs that need covering on the day:
Entry Gate – take entry fee and give out souvenir glasses
Token Sales – sell tokens for use at the bars
Cider, Wine & Prosecco Bar – serve cider in halves and pints from boxes, and wine & prosecco by the bottle
Real Ale Bar – serve real ale in halves and pints from hand pumps and barrels
Soft Drinks & Tee shirt sales – dispense soft drinks to children and drivers (for a donation to our chosen charity of the day); sell BBB tee-shirts
Marshalling – guide our visitors around the premises at various points
All jobs are voluntary, we ask just 2 hours of your time on the day plus attendance at one of our briefing/training sessions, where we will give you a short run through of how the day works, and you will be briefed on whichever job you have been allocated. Afterwards you can ask questions and try your hand at pulling a pint. We won’t ask you to do anything that you’re not comfortable with, and you’ll get a limited edition BBB tee-shirt free of charge to say thank you. We’ll give you an old glass to use if you want to buy a drink before or after your shift, and this can be exchanged for a glass from the current year at the end of the event, once the visitors have all gone.
The briefing/training sessions are held at The Community Centre on the Thursday before the event at 7pm and on the Friday before at 6.30pm. Please try and attend one as we won’t have time to train you on the day, plus you can collect your staff teeshirt which gets you into the event for free.
If this sounds like something you’d enjoy (and why wouldn’t you, its great fun!) please leave a message on our Contact Us page and we’ll get back to you with further details nearer the time.
We also need help setting everything up and dismantling, as follows:
Wednesday from 7.30pm – moving equipment into the Community Centre
Saturday 8am to 12 noon – set up gazebos and stage, set out chairs and tables etc
Saturday approx 9pm – take down gazebos and stage, put away chairs and tables
Sunday 9am to 1pm – pack everything away.
Please let us know if you’re able to help, so that we can add you to the rota. If you’re not sure until the day, just turn up – we’ll be there anyway!
