Posted:Starburst, Not sure about Brighton but if you've got mates in London or could come down for an evening or night in the week, you should come to one of the workshops on Tuesday/Wednesday evening. If not, try the Circus Space in Hoxton (it's part of Central School of Speech and Drama) and I know they do evening courses and summer schools. And if you're ever in London at all on any night (or day!) email me beforehand and we'll meet up. I'm always up for a spin!Sunbeam------------------Life in the circus ain't easy but the folks on the outside don't know yeah well the tent goes up and the tent goes down and all that they see is the show and the ladies on the horses look so pretty and the lions are looking real mad and some of the clowns are happy and some of the clowns are sad.

Posted:Just thought I'd drop in that the British Juggling Convention is coming up at the end of March - over the long weekend - down in Kent. I went to the European Juggling Convention ni Rotterdam last summer and have been to the Bristol Juggling Convention a few times. Conventions are great events, not all juggling, lots of contact, staff, poi etc... and lots and lots of really nice smiley, fluffy people! Anyway, that's my pitch, they've generally got fire-pits and show's etc... also a really good place to buy lots of cheap toys. Downside is the 60 and having to supply your own tent, but hey! Fuckit! It's great fun....See you there?------------------I am the God of hellfire and I bring you...
