Tim Marshall and Ben Bartram

Tim and Ben were both born on the Island, play bass guitar, and five years ago they started the IW Beer and Buses Weekend, which now features around 100 buses, 90 venues and 13,000 people!

They talk about what it takes to put on an event of this size – which they and their team do entirely voluntarily.
