Posted:The toucan club shut down several months ago, due to the council allowing a 2 million pound flat development to go on above it and reducing there late night music license... so they sold out to a trendy wine bar

Though have no fear the toucan is making a return.... it is planned to reopen on the 21st of Jan and take over journeys on newport road, not quite in town anymore and alot smaller but it still should be good . . .

Im another new one. I've had one day of lessons in poi... drunkenly... at a festival... from a mate... and I'm not even Welsh. But I do love poi ridiculously and live in Cardiff, so perhaps you'll forgive me. I always feel a bit stupid doing poi in public by myself and it makes me wish student accomodation came with a back garden cause these rooms are too damn small to spin properly in, so meeting other spinners would be fun. Plus, I'm always up for learning a new thing or two.

Posted:Right . . .no luck finding a map that is of any use so here goes on a description

1. Queen Street (Main shopping street)

2. Find Charles street (opposite whsmiths, there is a burger king on the corner and if you look down it, there are big next signs sticking out of the left hand wall)

3. Walk down Charles street until you get to the church on your left.

4. There is a side street to your left here walk down it a bit, until you reach a gateway into the church grounds.

5. Step down the one or two steps and then head for the door on your left (it is green but it is difficult to tell though) and come on in , cos you found the juggling club.

It is part of the No fit state circus - http://www.nofitstate.com
br>
Juggling club is from 8pm till 10pm and costs 2.

Hope to see you there. . . .
Matt, let me know if any of you decide to go and I will make sure I go to say hello . . . (PM me if you want a phone number just in case you get lost)

Posted:I might look into that. I doubt I'll be able to make it regularly for now though because I have drama rehersals from 6-10 on Thursday nights. At least, until my play is staged in early March. I suppose you don't need any particular level of skill for this place? Because I'm not pretending to have any - at all.

Posted:Well I might try and pop in while you're still in Cardiff then. I hate turning up to these sort of things without knowing anybody at all. I'm always running in between Liverpool and Cardiff as it is anyways 'cause I'm only here for uni. What kind of format does the club run? Lessons or just a space for people to practise whatever they like?
