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

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

Would you be interested in me doing a drumming workshop?

Not sure if you've got anyone lined up to do one already - but I really enjoyed getting back into drumming at Falmouth and would quite like to get back into teaching (Although I used to teach kit, not hand drums)



I was thinking an intermediate/advanced workshop on "Metric Modulation and Super-Imposed Metric Modulation" would be fun biggrin



This would take me up to 3 workshops and a show - but meh, it's all fun (Trade you for an extra ticket for Mrs Durbs wink )

You've got around 160 miles to do, depending on Traffic around London and Birmingham you could have 3-4 hours driving to do. Hope you don't hit any jams and your bosses let you off a couple hours early hug

But the only things I can do to a level where I can teach others are CJ, Devilstick, and I suppose hand drumming (as Durbs calls it)...

Posted:Ok, in slightly more depth...

I'm down for an install in Woodmansterne that day at 9.00am.
If all things go well, I can be done and dusted hopefully before 11 or 12. As I'm generous and mildly important ( wink ) I can probably give myself an early finish for working so hard - so could be on the road with passengers around 1-ish.
Fingers crossed.
All I have to do now is a) find out where Woodmansterne is and b) hope that everything is sorted for that days work.

Fingers crossed
Will and Ed - Are you both free all day incase I do finish early? Originally I was planning on picking you up from G'ford, but there might be a better place to get you both from smile

In fact, Meeting will somewhere could be cool, having a nice leisurely spin and all that...

But then there's stuff to think about...

I'll have a Holdall of clothes, A tent, a sleeping bag, and the usual rucksack full of toys.
