Medley Productions is involved in the management of Wild Tree Fair and Harlequin Fayre. We assign site and event crews to numerous roles (see below) for these events. Throughtout the summer we also take kit and services out to a range of festivals and other events across the UK, for which we need site crews.
We tend to run "crew heavy", meaning the duties should be manageable without having to overdo anything!
~ As Crew you get a vehicle pass & free camping.
~ At Wild Tree Fair and Harlequin Fayre we feed all the crew a good meal every day they help.
~ Site Crews turn up well before the start of the event (often the Sunday prior), build the show and kick back and relax during the event. Monday morning we take it all down, and we leave site either same day or a few days later, depending on the size of the build.
~ Event Crews are on duty at the same time as the public are on site. As a rule you would be on duty for 4hrs a day, with the rest of the time to do as you please.
~ Training is given on the afternoon that you arrive (see * on arrival dates).
~ If you are reliable, reasonably mobile and have a smile we would like to hear from you. You do not need previous experience or a wide skill set; it is mostly about attitude.
Having brilliant crew is essential to everyone having a safe and enjoyable time, so please do join us.
If you would like to bring your children you will need to ensure you have arranged care during your duty. Often their tickets will need to be paid for (sometimes at a reduced rate). Partners can often be supplied with discount price tickets.
THE SITE CREW TEAMS
are involved in the build and creation of the show. We often arrive the weekend before the event. We stay till all the kit is off the field (Mon / Weds depending on event). We have a lot of fun and work pretty hard then kick back and relax during the event then swing into the takedown.
First and Last concentrate more on laying the site out and getting all the ingredients in place.
Team Build It puts much of the show up and deals with fencing, plumbing, carpentry, marquee erection etc.
Creation Crew look after the decorative side of the site, from flags and lighting through to installations.
THE EVENT CREW TEAMS (SHIFT BASED TEAMS)
arrive half a day before their first shift to set up camp and receive training. During the event do one 4hr shift per day.
Day Stewards (9am-9pm) guide the public in arriving and finding their way around the site.
Green Stewards (9am-6pm) help the event stay clean and support with amazing recycling.
Night Stewards (9pm-3am) work alongside the Security firm to just put a few more sets of eyes and radios on the field overnight.
Bar Crew (11am-3am) serve on the bar and make the bars fun places to be.
Gate Crew (9am-9pm) deal with wristbands and vehicle passes.
Toilet Fairies (8am-6pm) liaise with the toilet contractors, and make sure loos and urinals are kept useable.
Kidz Area (10am-6pm) fill roles as parts of workshops or general helpers.
