Volunteer at Summer Beer Thing 2018

Be it pouring beer, assisting with the running of the event, manning token and merch desks, or just being a helpful friendly face ~ your participation would be greatly appreciated. 

Summer Beer Thing promises to be a tip-top world-class showcase of beer with the finest street food, entertainment and day-long outdoor fun. We are looking to recruit kindly volunteers throughout Pilcrow’s Summer Beer Thing, and also in the days either side to help with the production of the event and the close down. 

The dates we looking for help are Wednesday 27th June - Monday 2nd July 2018. In return for your time, each volunteer will be given free entry to a Summer Beer Thing session of their choice, beer tokens to spend, and a Summer Beer Thing t-shirt.

Should this spike your interest levels, please get in touch with us closer to the time below or check in here for updates.

Fill in the survey and let us know you availability:

We hope you can join us and be a part of the Pilcrow’s Summer Beer Thing 2


Jazz Club at the Pilcrow

Jazz Club takes leave of its Leeds home to make a special trip across the Pennines to Manchester, and The Pilcrow, for a Sunday afternoon session on 13th May.

JC residents, Barry’s Here and Mark Hepworth, will be joined by The Johnny Hunter Trio, a salty crew of musicians if ever there was one.

What a better way to smooth out those weekend wrinkles other than getting nine or ten good ales in you and letting the Jazz Club family do the rest? Maybe a packet of crisps as well, but that’s a personal choice.

If you are on the fence and want an idea of the of music to expect then you could check out some of the recent Jazz Club radio shows.
