Posted:Well, in addition to Happy Thursdays there is now going to be a new weekly meeting in Guildford.



Every Sunday, from 2 - 6pm in the Stoke Pub back room.



Happy Thursdays are still going to run and will be the "fire night" or, if it's raining, the "pub night" wink

The Sunday Sessions are more practise orientated- as it's difficult to practise and impossible to teach/learn in the dark and not particularly fun in the rain smile

The plan is to have fairly regular workshops teaching everything from the basics to the not-so-basics - so any volunteer teachers, step forward biggrin



We're looking for as much variety as possible inside, hopefully will get some jugglers (ewwwww wink ), devil-stickers, diaboloists etc. down.



Entrance fee is 3 which covers renting the back-room.



The first one will be Sunday, November the 7th and then hopefully it will be every week. At the moment, I'm thinking this might just be for the Autumn-Winter period, but if it's popular (and the pub are fine with it) it could stay smile



Hope to see some of you there smile

I'll probably alternate between thursdays and sundays for the next few weeks, until it finally becomes too cold to be outside. Be good to get some practice in when I can actually see what I'm doing. Might end up hitting myself in the head less. Maybe rolleyes.

How high is the ceiling?

You're not a real juggler yet.
Upon walking into a room always check for height and breakability of surroundings!

and a true juggler will go into a room, look round, and do the check for height, breakability, space to move and such, and then juggle never mind what the situation is biggrin

Yeah, but as a contact juggler - I look for a floor that isn't concrete and is smooth enough to glide on wink
