Hello

I've done a search, and unless i've gone completely wrong somewhere and missed something major, i can't find anything on groups in Essex, UK.

I live near Stansted Airport, and i'm considering visiting some of the groups in London, but that's costly over a few weeks. I'd really like to find a group near here that i can go to. I'm looking for a group who twirl poi, and fire poi, and do other circus skills as well ideally (sorry if that's offensive: poi as circus skills). I want to learn more. i can do some basic moves with the poi, but because i live out in the sticks, there's no-one around here that i can watch and learn from.

Sorry if there's some glaringly obvious part of the site that i've missed. And thankyou for the help!

Fee

i live in harlow smile

but i honestly don't really play much near home nowdays.

however, spitalfields is at the bottom of our trainline (and just round the corner from where i work) so yoo should try and get down there if you can.

the good thing about spitz is that there are enough wicked spinners there to learn from that you can come down and get lots and lots of things to take home and work on.

if you're lucky you might even catch a teaching session type workshop thing there.

i would have replied to your message in the spitz thread but i'm off to glastonbury this week so i doubt i'll be down there either tomorrow or next week.

but if you're still in need of an escort/friendly face to go to spitz with in a couple of weeks time, just send me a pm and let me know smile

happy spinning.

i concur with cole, I've been living in Colchester for the past 4 years, and I just go down to London stuff. I generally don't go to mid week things like Spitz, but for all day stuff like Clapham on Sundays it's worth the trek

Can't seem to get any reply from the Colchester butterfingers poi group, So have decided to set up my own group for lovers of poi, staff, juggling, devil sticks, diablo etc.

If you're in essex and interested in meeting up with others, then take a lookey at https://groups.myspace.com/Essexfirestarters

Am hoping to start regular meetings (if there is enough interest), possibly in chelmsford as it is quite central, although it depends on where most people are located.

anyways would be good to hear from any 'firestarters' in essex.

Hello!

The Butterfingers group have fallen by the wayside i'm afraid and they haven't updated any info.

Some of us meet on irregular Tuesday in lower Catle Park, Colchester but you keep up to date here ... https://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=16216876666

Sorry - I have re-visited HoP for a while. There did used to be a juggling club which met in Chelmsford on Thursdays too if you're in that area.

Hope to catch up soon!
