Posted:hey peeps, anyone else at a loose end for NYE?

I'm thinking about going to the Synergy Centre bash..

http://www.thesynergycentre.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=60&Itemid=110

a bit of trance going on but looks like there are some fairly cool things going on as well: especially rocking out to some Ghanean drummers at midnight!

Anyone else up for it?

Posted:There's me not reading things properly! I'm even more too wimpish to go to London!!! I guessed that the camcircus would be off over Christmas, I'll prbably get down there sometime in January or February, whenever I am not required anywhere else, as seems to be the way on my one day off a week.

Posted:Hey guys!

I've just moved to Cambridge recently, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if fire spinner gatherings exist, and where and when? Oh, and also - where the hell do you buy paraffin here?! All I've seen are bookshops and posh little clothes boutiques smile

Thanks! x

Posted:Hey Jelena, welcome to Cambridge! On Sunday, Cambridge Community Circus runs from 5-8pm - tis the best place to meet all of us - except, maybe, for when we all go to the pub afterwards smile visit www.camcircus.org for directions, and I hope we see you there next week. All us poi and staff spinners are there, along with nearly every type of object-manipulation under the sun.

There are random fire-nights now and then - I want one soon actually. Anyone up for this?

Paraffin can be bought from Mackay's: http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=mackays%20cambridge

I can't seem to find any paraffin in the local Homebase or Focus DIY stores. Useless, the lot of them smile

PS. what is that you're using in your picture Jelena? A sword?

Posted:random fire night - yes please, only not on a tuesday, wednesday or thursday!

there's also a DIY place near the train station:
heading away from the train station, first right, and it's on the right hand side
It's a focus or somesuch and you can get paraffin there too.

also, I'll be at camcircus from 5-8pm on sunday as I'm opening up

Yay more people!

The Community Circus sounds fun, I'll definitely stop by and meet you guys soon!

Oh, and it's a fire whip in the picture. Very theatrical, but kinda terrifying to use, I have this love/hate relationship with it smile

Posted:Who can you expect me to be... Hmm...

Hello wave I'm Jelena (pronounced Ye-lei-na), and I've just moved here from Edinburgh to do a postgrad. I was involved with Beltane Festival for the last couple of years, which got me hooked to fire performing for life devil
I mainly spin poi weavesmiley, but I'm getting quite into hooping too.
Oh, and if I'm not spinning fire, I take pictures of it instead smile - http://www.dpchallenge.com/portfolio.php?USER_ID=62787&collection_id=23516
