The Balloon Platoon


The balloon Platoon will be invading Great British Beer Festival Winter once more!! Veterans of regional and national CAMRA festivals right across the UK, they’ll be on patrol and entertaining visitors to Norwich in their usual style. These unpaid entertainers will be producing crazy balloon headgear, bracelets, mascotson-glasses, and more upon request.

It’s “what they do” so do show them your customary ‘appreciation’ so they can *pay some bills when they return to their base in Cheshire!   Make sure you seek them out for that personalised balloon creation for you to remember GBBFW! Take a picture and post it on our twitter pages @GBBFWinter or Facebook @GBBFWinter.  Photo of visitors to the festival wearing Balloon Platoon personalised creations!
