=================================

info update

Cost - 15

Dates - 19th - 21st August 2005

Location - Shrewsbury Agricultural Showground, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, UK.

=================================



UPDATE 23rd July 2005



Tickets now on sale, go to the website or book via telephone on 07814 018 091



=================================



Update - 5th Jan 2005

The site is now up and running at http://www.playfestival.co.uk
there is a forum included so everyone can contribute to the ideas, concepts and development of the festival as a whole. It wouldn't survive without "everyones" involvement so feel free to log on, register and let us know what you'd like from us while you're there.

And to think non of this would have started if I hadn't gotten into HoP and realised how wonderful this scene is, thank you HoP even if you did remove the link from my sig without telling me why, or even telling me rolleyes hug



Update 31st January 2005



Tickets can now be Pre-booked, up to five adult and five free childrens (u14's) can be booked, once they are released for sale you will be given a set time period to buy them before they will be offered to the public. We're still unsure what the time period will be but it will be a reasonable amount of time, such as 6 weeks, from them being released before they will be put back into the ticket pool. Everyone will be advised by email and in various public announcements of the release date well before they're out.







=====================================================

I have been thinking for a while about organising an Object Manipulation (couldn't think how else to describe it!!) Convention sometime next year, and thought this would be the best place to get the ball rolling! (pun pun)



My idea is this......a mini festival for spinners/jugglers etc that's small and laid back enough to enjoy but big and organised enough to get the most out of. Maybe a band/dj or two in a tent, a fire show each night, weekend camping and most importantly lots of workshops, idea exchanges and fun for all the family. Easy going and fun are the objectives.



It wouldn't be poi based, it would be for all object manipulators from hat juggling to ribbon dancing and everything in between and to the sides so no pigeon holing or amimosity between arts will occur.



So what I'd like to know is if I organised, laid out capital etc for a proper weekend festival (Fri -> Sun) would I get enough interest and of course people attending? I obviously can't afford it by myself but if I put up the cash the more people I expect to come the cheaper I could cost it out per person.



I'd like to hope it'd cost no more that 25 each, but obviously the more people we expect to come the cheaper we can make it, I'd much rather it was a tenner than 25! (please note attendance would be a capped limit for safety and comforts sake)



All I'd be looking for is to break even or turn a small profit so it can be piled back into the next one making it even better and also cheaper.



As they say on poipoipoi's website......"it's not capitalism.......it's spherculism"



It would be in a decent sized feild with a remote location so there would be no townie trouble but close enough for easy access from major routes.



I figure if it's in the midlands area it's probably the easiest for everyone geographically although of course it depends what venues we can find and what the consensus is.



If this is the sort of thing folks would like then yell, but please be a serious yell as I'm realistically trying to sort numbers so I can get accurate costing done. There's also a poll I've set up HERE so vote in it if you can please.



If you think it's a little OTT compared to what is generally available such as Spitz and various annual juggling conventions please say so, all opinions have the same importance smile but don't forget to vote



Thanks folks! I hope you like the idea and can help me to make it a success for all those who come *fingers crossed*



If you have any info you think I might be interested in, ie quality venues (any free party goers out there that know good locations?) any ideas for during the convention or feel there's something individual you could offer I'd really appreciate hearing about it either in this thread or by PM. It's the only way I can make sure I'm giving people what they want!



Looking forward to your comments biggrin



Thanks for reading this rather long post hug

Dunc has gone to uber poi for the weekend.....well I hope he has got there. They broke down on the way, but I think they are back up and running in a different car now.

I believe there is a capped number of tickets but I'm not sure how many or how fast they are selling. If you PM Dunc he will be able to answer you when he gets home again.

I hope that helps a bit. I didn't want you to be left hanging all weekend wondering why Dunc hadn't replied to you.

Posted:There are limited tickets and there selling quite fast - so book ASAP!

We have some DJs lined up at the moment but we'd be interested in hearing about more. Do you have any demos or anything? If only to hear what the sets might be like so we can mix the styles up a but.

If might be better to pop over to the PLAY forum at playfestival.co.uk and talk about it there or just email info@playfestival.co.uk

Alice, I have your money hon hug

Pyrowill, I will be seeing young Master Strugnell not long after Falmouth but won't be there myself cuz it landed on the only weekend I couldn't make it. If you want to book your ticket go to the website and follow the directions from the home page :o)

Strugz, he's also lame at rolling up when you want one and giving lifts all over the country and staff lessons. Lame does mean brilliant doesn't it?! kiss hug

For those who've not bought tickets yet, get them done sooner than later or you may miss out wink

Having some issues working out dates at the moment. I have just discovered that I'm meant to be in Prague that weekend.

I'm trying to work out if dates can be re-arranged but its slightly more complicated than it needs to be because the people I'm meant to be meeting are working in a remote part of the Swiss Alps.

Hopefully know in a couple of days then give you a shout smile
