  1. How did everybody find their shifts?? I was on one of the smaller Brew Bars.. Bar Managers were very busy smoking fags and staring at their phones out back, and when not doing this were more concerned with the internal politics of Avalon. Money / till manager was rude, curt and lazy. Every Shift we had no-shows meaning we had no breaks, worked well past out scheduled hours and I ended up organising the damn bar re-stocking myself because of idleness of staff getting a damn good day rate. All this manifested itself as working like crazy for 10hr shifts, and feeling so god damn tired I could hardly bring myself to enjoy my time off. Left a real sour taste in my mouth tbh...
  2. God yeah, each their own and that, but I just cant abide his musings about sub-par 90's indie landfill all the time.. and over use of the word 'fella' urgh....
  3. Tuesday - Arrive - Set up Tent - Get shifts - Plan my three or four must sees around my shifts.- Birthday Bar Crawl around crew bars. Wed - Thurs - Fri - Sat - Sun - Plan to fail, fail to plan - Go with flow
  4. got an email asking me to join a face-ache group. I haven't done face-ache for years, and have no intention to do so... Hope they do not put anything important on there, as ill miss out.
  5. The John Peel Centre in Stowmarket had a 'Classic Album Sunday' with Jarvis and Pulp's 'Different Class' I was working the bar and met him briefly beforehand. Sheila hunted out John's copy of the album and found it to be still in the shrink, so she thought it would be great for him to open it on stage, and give it a spin.. A great day with a Q&A after..
  6. Hot Chip Comet Is Coming The Streets Fontaines DC The Idels But alas I and behind the bar serving you's lot drinks for 24 hours over the festival so will miss out on at least one or two.. Will no doubt stumble across someone else good to see though

    We put tower cranes up at work and this is how its done. erect the tower and assemble the jib on the floor. Get a mobile in to lift the jib and slewing ring up..
  9. just under.. around 90 mins..
  10. Went last night.. Like other people have said, its mostly about being able to identify and work through serving folk that look underage. Few other bit and bobs. Most people there had already been to Glastonbury, and worked in bars, but what is expected of you is all explained well. The main thing I took from it is that you are expected to be ambassadors for the charity, don't slack off or take the piss, have fun, enjoy the experience and whatever you do DO NOT serve people who are underage
  11. Yeah.... think a trip to Lidl the Sunday before I leave, otherwise it'll get drunk
