I have in idea of how to get some free tickets into Glastonbury how about getting in touch with the organizers offering free Poi Lessons to all. It is something I've not seen done there and it seems like it would be right up their street, I've seen all kinds of workshops from making Flags to flint arrowhead so its got to be worth a try. Especially if we can get some sort of backing from Home Of Poi it would look so more professional if we got them to forward a letter to glastos organizers all we need is a bit of space in the green fields or somewhere and I would be happy to give lessons by day and watch music by night or even give a show. Well what do you all think? All they can say is no. Who would be interested if we could get this to work?

guys, guys, I've been thinking about doing something like this for ages, we have a house full of ambitious, if not that skillfull twirlers, who would be well up for it. Let us know where your gonna have it if u'r succesfull.

Hi Random and the rest of you guys. I'm not sure how possible this is but if we get the backing of HoP, it will definatley help.Myself and my girlfriend are willing to teach for some of the time and both do staff and doubles and I also do Poi.I'm sure I can convince Aerotech to let me bring some samples. Looking forward to spinning round that circle at dawn.

My mates and I have been thinking the very same thing! If any jobs are available doing poi/staff etc, we'd be well up for it! A fire circle at the festival would be wicked fun, please keep me posted!
