I"m in Nuneaton, so close.. Have you looked in general circus groups? www.jugglingdb.com is a good start. I found a club in nuneaton where a couple do poi, and there's one in cov also smile

good news biggrin and bad news eek
good first - still meetin tuesdays an non uni students are still welcome but, here comes the bad bit, we're usin uni property to practice so to join club you have to pay ten quid. its for insurance purposes although we do get half back to spend on new equipment. hope thats ok with you, if not you could be an unnoficial member and meet up with us at weekends. redface
let me know

mmm... flammable

cool! no cut off date for payment. we'll be meeting tuesay 6-7 in the bar of the de montfort union. however we had a sign up day yesterday and masses of people wanted to join so we may have to find a bigger room at some stage. you can come along for a few weeks before you have to pay so dont worry about that. if you have your own poi, staff or anythin like that if you could bring them with you that'd be a BIG help smile
see you soon

yeah, will be able to bring poi after this weekend.....a friend is making them for me and im collecting them this weekend.

a rather weird question you might think but......any chance i can take your name?! just show i can show up and actually be linked to someone rather than be on my lonesome lol.

will most likely be there tomorrow all being well. i assume the bar is in the new building opposite the gateway college?

I believe it is, as i was invited to go along the other day! although i dont know times, day or where abouts it is!

But if your interested, monday nights from about 8.00 (i think!) In the union building at Leicester uni, there is a general circus society meeting! Lots of juggling, not much poi but its kind of an open thing. its not a huge thing but a variety of people show up and they are all very friendly! lol
