The people who were doing firepoi were Woody (wood2) and Lu, (neither of whom are HoPpers (any more, at least)), but they were stopped by the wardens. I was playing with aerotechs around that area too...

So it was YOU! Well, I'll be juggling this year too... so the wardens had a big problem with people spinning but not with the fact that part of the field was invaded by campers... hmmm rolleyes

Will you be bringing your aerotechs this year??

last year was the first time i'd picked up a pair of poi, and this year is gonna be AMAZING!, cos 1) i'm better at poi, 2) i know you lot, and 3) i thought this needed a bump cos its just the best place on the planet.

also whoever said its been going more than 30 years was almost right, its the oldest fair in europe, around 800 years

right I'm talking to the people in charge of it about getting a poi workshop going for an hour or something. No chance of fire poi on the common. Might be able to set up on Jesus Green like bonfire nite tho.

And best of all: a big party afterwards!

anyways sorry to be boring, but I reckon we should save the hype until a bit closer to the time. Can always discuss it in the cambridge thread....

This year's one is on Saturday the third of June, and is now looming ever-closer!!

there will be:
live music
spinning
all your favorite festival stalls
festival people
and lots more going on

best of all: it's totally free!! and there's usually a phat party somewhere afterwards!

The folks from Cambridge Community Circus will probably be doing some stiltwalking and juggling in the parade, but if anyone wants to get involved they're more than welcome!!
