Some of these compères were asked months in advance, so had time to prepare the compèring and find decent quality acts.
Renegades included acts by people in the public show, including Wes Peden and Steve Ragatz, which increased the quality.
The Old Skool
Notes and other details
Yorkshire Tea provided free tea bags for the event (the orgs provided tea urns, milk, sugar & coffee) so free tea was available, it was also possible to buy a special BJC 2013 mug to drink it in.
Tues: Pub Quiz and a music jam in the bar tent.
Wedn: Glow/UV Disco in the Ladybird Tent
Thur: Fire jam in fire area and Ceilidh in the bar tent followed by a band
There were segregated bins on site so that most of the waste from the event could be recycled.
The event was filmed and broadcast live via livestream by Nathan Rae from Juggling Live, Nathan raised money for equipment to film BJC from an on-line crowdfunding appeal before BJC. The convention received a percentage from sales of BJC DVDs sold at BJC, this raised £700 for BJC 2013 .
