Meet the B7s Team: Roya Loughlin
Our team sales guru talks about scary balloons, Queen, and Catchphrase.
Name: Roya Loughlin
Job Title: Sales Manager
How many Bournemouth 7s festivals do you have under your belt?
I’ve had 2 entire festivals now. One was my placement year and then last year was my first as a full-time.
In 10 words, what is your job role?
(laughs, and counts on fingers) Sales, sales, sales, sales, sales, sales, sales, sales, twitter, sales.
What do you do for the rest of the year?
I deal with team sales. One of our busiest periods is end of early-bird at the end of October, so that was just nuts. It’s kind of the biggest deadline for the sales team, it means we can start well, get good teams in and then we’re set for the rest of the year. This year we had record numbers, so that was really good to see!
Favourite Bournemouth 7s moment?
That’s such a difficult one! (pauses to think) I’d actually have to say, I caught the last song from Professor Green last year, and the vibe and atmosphere was incredible. Everyone was just singing back to him, and I think it’s one of the best atmospheres I’ve seen at a festival.
What is your signature dish?
Spag bol because I’m really basic. I have zero skills in the kitchen, but I do make a killer spag bol to be fair.
What is/was your preferred sport?
It would have to be rugby. On my injury break at the minute, but I’m excited to be back on the pitch.
If there was an olympic sport for everyday activities, what would you have the most chance of winning a medal in?
Catchphrase: you know the show on ITV? Mate, you haven’t seen me, I’m going to go on the show and make millions, genuinely.
What was the last show you binge watched?
Probably Brooklyn 99, I binge watch that over and over again, it’s just one of those you can always watch.
What’s the silliest fear you have?
You know when there’s a balloon floating above you and you look up at it? I always think that I’m going to float. I can’t look at it for too long because I feel like I’m going to float up. Does that make sense? Is that a real thing?! I feel like I’m going to float up with it but I don’t know why.
What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen?
I watched half of that Disaster Artist one, but couldn’t finish it. I’m not very good at staying on if I’m not liking it. I’m just like “no”.
If you could choose one act, past or present, to perform at Bournemouth 7s, who would it be?
Queen. Just them live generally and that Live Aid performance was just incredible. If you got that, imagine the scenes, it would be unreal
