The Balloon Platoon
The Balloon Platoon will be invading the 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, 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.
Dove and Boweevil

In 2012 Dove and Boweevil became electrified and formed as a five piece band with influences from Doctor John, Delaney and Bonnie and The Tedeschi Trucks Band.
