In the evenings there are informal and formal shows, a fire party and a marquee equiped with asound system and UV lights. You can Juggle and play all night.... People do!

Sweet, looks like me and bex will be there this year,

I'm happy to do some strange Poi workshops if you like.

I'm having a lot of trouble finding out info about the convention tho, festival.juggle.org.nz/ isn't showing any content, i also found a link to from here https://www.juggling.org/festivals/upcoming/world.html
but that link doesn't work either.

How do we buy tickets?

See you there,

matt

Hey Matt

I have a flyer here for the event that someone left at Circadia. The contact details are the phone number and email address for the holiday park that you can camp at/ book accommodation with: raglanholidaypark at xtra dot co dot nz. Phone number +64 then (0)7 then 825 then 8283.



There is also a mailing address: NZ Juggling Association PO Box 9232 Marion Square Wellington. They say it is $50 or $40 earlybird and the only payment option given is by cheque. Clearly not intended for overseas registration...



Perhaps you just book/pay at the door? It says they usually have about 200 people so I guess they can accommodate whoever turns up without too much stress...



According to the flyer, the Festival opens at 12noon Thursday, there is a renegade Friday, Juggling olympics/ Public show/Fireshow Saturday, ends 1pm Sunday. They ask on the rego form if you want to teach a workshop, be in the renegade/public/fire shows. Have fun! hug

.....Can't Juggle Balls but I sure as hell can Juggle details....

Typical. Stuck in Wgtn for Cuba Street Carnival. The curse of retail. frown Fun with Fire have got a float in the parade, but it's not going to compare to that fire party....
