Ok so I know this is another Strawberry fair thread, but there is a point to this one being here this early.
For those of you who don't know what it is, Strawberry Fair is Europe's biggest FREE festival. That's right, there are bands, stages, performers, the lot there, and do you have to pay to get in? Not one cent! all we ask is that you help to keep the site clear of rubbish.
Being a totally free event in a capitalist country is pretty difficult to arrange, and relies heavily on people participating, organising and generally giving up their time for the good of the fair.
For 2008, We are trying to organise a juggling/spinning area, with potentially two areas for workshops.
We need several things at SF:
people willing to teach youngesters
people who want to participate in workshops
people to help teach other people who to make poi/staffs/etc
Additional info: fire spinning is not permitted at this particular event: If you feel the need to burn, there are plenty of other parks you can sneak off to: If you try to do it in the middle of the fair police/stewards will stop you!
Unfortunately the whole fireshow idea has fallen through *sigh* EDITED_BY: LazyAngel (1211189288)

First real time example of a Catch-22 i've heard there.
