Brighton Bear Weekend on the radio

Graham, chair of the Brighton Bear Weekend committee, was on Radio Reverb‘s Out in Brighton show yesterday, talking about our preparations for this year’s weekend, what you can look forward to there, and the good causes to which all the money raised goes each year.

He also called for volunteers to help out either before or during this year’s weekend (14-17 June). We always appreciate your help setting events up, breaking events down, manning the doors, shaking buckets, helping out with graphic design, or anything else you’re good at! If you’d like to volunteer, please send us a message via our contact form.

You can check out the interview in the first fifteen minutes of this podcast:
