Blue Bell Tents Summer Crew Recruitment 2016

Blue Bell Tents are recruiting for the summer season 2016. We are looking for enthusiastic, resourceful and fit crew members to join our team crewing over summer at a broad range of music festivals and sporting events. Operating across England, Scotland and Wales, our teams are on the move across the summer attending some of the best events the UK has to offer. You would be joining a close knit team of co-workers and contributing to building the 'Blue Bell experience'. 

Do you enjoy working outdoors in all conditions with others, to tight deadlines? Work is fast paced and physical but enjoyable and rewarding within a lively team. Blue Bell Tents look after staff well and expect a high standard of work- attention to detail is critical as is a team spirit and a good sense of humour! 

Crewing involves warehouse stock management; vehicle loading and campsite build and breaks with dressing and furnishing tents either side of live event dates. More often than not, crews remain on site with a crew festival ticket and therefore have the opportunity to make the most of the weekend. 

There is the opportunity to work on a number of festivals travelling between shows, with potential for progression in responsibility and pay.

This is a great entry level for individuals interested in moving into live events or event management or indeed those at university or on a gap year and like music festivals. 

We also have opportunities for event management positions if you have relevant experience. 

There is additional requirement for front of house customer service roles, working in reception looking after guests and representing the Blue Bell Tents name. Training is provided. 

If this sounds like you, then we would love to hear from you. Please send us your CV along with a short email explaining what you have been up to and why you would make a good team member, using '2016 Crew' as the header. A clean UK driving license is preferable but not essential.


I wondered whether this would be something I enjoyed, but thank god I decided to go for it! I don't ...

What is a Blue Bell Tent?
Blue Bell Tents are traditional canvas 5m bell tents, originating from 19th century military camps and reimagined today as versatile tent hotel rooms. The entrance doorway is over 5ft, and the tallest part of the tent is almost 7ft high.
Is there power?
There is no electricity supplied to the tents themselves, and all lighting is either battery or solar powered. When we are operating a reception tent (at most festivals we attend) there will be facilities to charge your phone and hairdryers supplied with mirrors.
What comes included in the tents?
The tents are all 5m in diameter and come fully furnished with the queen size double or single Blue Bell wooden camp bed with a real mattress, 200 thread count pure cotton bed linen, winter tog duvets and fluffy pillows, sea-grass custom made flooring, brass vanity mirror, atmospheric lighting and lockable doors.
What should I bring with me?
You are welcome to bring whatever it is that will make your stay even more comfortable. This might be some deckchairs and a camp table, a picnic rug or cooking stove (please check with the festival you are attending on the specific rules). You will also need to bring a towel and toiletries and soap, AND don’t forget your wellingtons or boots! Blue Bell Tents come with bedding and bed linen. We have blankets available to buy and take home with you if you feel the nights are chillier than normal, otherwise you are welcome to bring your own.
Is there a deposit system?
Payment for booking is required in advance, and we do not take any additional payment as a security deposit.
