i'm guessing owen is banned because he will be in london running stefan sing's two-day workshop on that weekend?

not intentional i'm sure but its the second occurance of a fundango/london juggling same weekend workshop clash frown

i'm all little-girl excited about going to stefan sing's masterclass but i would have loved to have been able to go to ben and jago's workshops and check out howie's video collection in nottingham.

in related news, i heard a rumour that howie might be taking over mr gilligan's place in 'kuka' next year...?

anyway, hope it all goes great peachi hug
