Posted:Hi peeps, you are cordially invited to attend this years extravaganza in gods own county.



Saturday Dec 8th 1 day juggling convestival.

Held at the Leeds University Sports Centre from 10am with an Evening show in the Riley Smith Theatre (on Campus).



The last 2 years have been well attended with people turning up from the length and breadth of the country.



The usual stuff, practice space, workshops, games, traders (Beard and Butterfingers), Doughnuts and the show.



The website (due to be updated very shortly from it's current level of ineptness)

Leeds is pretty easy to get to, there is a free bus service from the Train station to the Uni (but it isn't to long a walk)



Crash space is being organised by the Leeds Uni Jugglers who can be reached via facebook (kids eh?)

But if your semi luditical try leeds.jugglers@gmail.com



Cost TBC but somewhere around the 6-7 mark with reductions for under 14's. Show only tickets also available.



05 Show video



If anybody's up for doing workshops or has a workshop request please get in touch or get your name up on the board on the day.



Hope to see you there

Live like there is no tomorrow,
dance like nobody is watching
and hula hoop like wiggling will save the world.

Big car park right next to the venue, you might need to get through the barriers onto campus, but that's never been a problem for me when I've driven to Leeds jugcon before, just press the intercom button..

I come in via the Parkinson building entry (BIGFOFF building, probably where the uni directions send you (or some signage put up by Leeds jugglers when you get near)) That seems to be always open. follow road round till you see the sports centre free parking. or just use the free visitor parking (same entry) further from the sports centre but closer to the show venue... choices eh.

not as daunting as this in real life honest. my entrance = main entrance and visitor car parks east, I believe that's the one most rd. signs lead you to. The one Pink Nigel mentions is the south entrance (I believe).

some more mappage and directions.

Posted:Problems with contracts means no gig in Switzerland for me on the 7th.

Sooo... it looks like I'll be at Leeds.

Workshops are a possibility, as is a performance of some kind if desired. Silliness and fun will definitely be on the menu.

biggrin


Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.
Be Water My Friend.

Posted:I reckon it's a good idea to go to tribe of fundango in nottingham immediately after this. It's on the way back. Well not for me, but for someone else probably.
