Cosmos Jugglers and friends - annual holiday



HoP threads on previous events at Laurieston:



2004



2002



The Cosmos Jugglers teach and perform circus skills. Enjoy juggling, club swinging, pole spinning, poi, human pyramids, fire performance, fire sculpture, black light, yoga and more.



We have the exclusive use of wonderful venues for fun and play including large-scale fire show spectacular, a cabaret, the Cosmos Black Light Show and a fluorescent extravaganza.



Laurieston includes saunas, boating on the loch, snooker, table tennis, table football, volleyball, swings, sandpit, dressing up clothes, and 140 acres of grounds, including ancient forest.



All activities are optional. Some come primarily for inspiration and training, others to relax, make friends and have a good time. Tuition is for all levels including beginners.



The flexible schedule allows participants to offer activities too. This has included clowning, trapeze, massage, tightrope, Qi Gong, story telling, drumming, singing, DJ mixing, forest walks, circle dancing, treasure hunt and camp fires in the woods.



As well as stunning locations and excellent facilities, both centres offer full board vegetarian meals and comfortable accommodation, with some family rooms.



Laurieston Hall: Saturday 30 April ? Friday 6 May



Six days and nights in beautiful rural Scotland. Suitable for both adults and families with children. Contact us for details of shared childcare arrangements.





Lower Shaw Farm: Friday 26 ? Monday 29 August



Three day Bank Holiday weekend at Lower Shaw Farm, Swindon, Wiltshire. A great venue for all ages.

Posted:First time I have logged on to Home of Poi this year I think... Gosh I have been busy.

Well last years event was great, and I am really looking forward to this year's six day event. and Hopefully to next year's seven day event!

Things just keep getting better and better these days, in all areas of my life, and a fair bit of that is directly due to learnings and experiences at Laurieston Hall. Jim and Anna have been a great influence.

Unfortunately, It looks like my Partner Steve will not be coming, as he needs to prioritize time for other things.

I am looking forward to camping down by the pond, and waking up to the sound of the fish jumping, and the sight of a grey heron making lazy circles over the sauna.

Saw playing is coming along a treat. Many thanks to Guy for inspiring me last year, to take it up. If you are coming this year Guy... perhaps we can do a saw playing duet.
