Our dedicated Nightlife Marshals and Angels will be out in full force, providing a reassuring presence and offering assistance where needed.

Meet Our Nightlife Marshals

Our Nightlife Marshals are easily recognisable in their red high-visibility jackets. Firstly they play a crucial role in managing the taxi rank queues, ensuring that everyone can get home safely and efficiently. Further more their responsibilities include:

  • Managing Taxi Ranks: Keeping the taxi queues orderly, preventing conflicts, and ensuring a smooth process for everyone waiting for a ride home.

Our marshalls are training to handle a variety of situations, henceforth ensuring that your night out in Barnsley remains enjoyable and trouble-free.
