Terry Dunn - VIP Bar Manager

Terry has been involved with running the VIP bars since the festival began.

Having no real bar experience in the past, Terry took up the task at our very first Tribfest in 2007 to help out within the VIP marquee. Terry has grown and loves to organise and serve the many Tribfesters with a smile on his face  "But only if Hull City win that weekend"!!

Jon Calvert - Events Assistant

Jon has been involved with Tribfest since the very start. He spent many hours in all weathers handing out flyers and putting up posters and has gradually become more and more involved with Tribfest each year. He now works with Ed throughout the year on all aspects of the festival from planning right through to production.
