I would like to invite you all to the UKs newest juggling convention Party on the Pier. Set on the scenic North Wales Coastline, it is the ONLY juggling and circus skills convention in the world to take place on a pier (as far as we know!)

Dates: 7-8th June 2008
Location: Colwyn Bay Pier

Join us for two days of juggling, circus skills, workshops and a classic North Wales mid-summer holiday on the beach.

Colwyn Bay Pier is currently undergoing restoration and the main 24 hour juggling hall is the ballroom of the original Victorian pavilion the restoration of which is incomplete but will provide a great focus for what we hope will be a memorable two days.

Camping at a local campsite
Late Bar and Caf available on the pier
Jesters
Public Show
24 hour juggling
Easy access to the sights and sounds of North Wales

Righty-ho...

We had an extremely! long but good meeting about this on Wednesday and it's really starting to get going...I'm getting pretty excited biggrin

The website is: https://www.partyonthepier.co.uk which is being updated in the very near future and prices will be added very shortly so keep your eyes open for those.

It's 6 weeks away so make sure you have your bucket and spade if you're planning on coming!

The pier is opposite the train station so it is very easily accessible and there is plenty of free parking if you are coming by car!

Nika is going to be performing the Stockings routine in the public show. Bluecat Rob is also in the public show line up.

If you are on facebook the group is here!

and if you're not here are a couple of pics to tempt you smile Photos taken by Cathy Wood

I'm fully coming to this one.
I heard about it from a guy running a circus workshop in Llanduno, SO glad he told me!
It's only 15 minutes up the road, which is rare for me, I'd normally have to travel far and wide to get smething like this.
So best take advantage whilst it's right there on my doorstep eh =D

update:

Just over 2 weeks to go smile Bring your buckets and spades smile

There will be tea and coffee making facilities so bring a mug. There will be a few disposable cups but bring a mug if you can as it saves throwing away plastic smile

Also, the hall has no heating so during the day when it is full it will be fine, but if you're a hardcore late night juggler, or you're planning on finding a piece of floor in the hall to sleep, please bring warm clothes!

**Workshops**

If anyone wants to offer a workshop drop me a message/wall post and let me know smile Equally if anyone wants to request a workshop I will see what I can do

Stuff to do: You can expect all the usual juggling convention nonsense and, weather permitting, the opportunity for some juggley play time on the beach. There will be juggling games, a unicycle trek down the beautiful coastal cycle path, space to fly kites on the beach and, just up the road is a skate park for unicyclists, skaters, snakers and ripstickers. In order to plan your beach play time go to tide times


Night time fun: After the show the Ballroom will be open for the whole of Saturday night. We have organised a DJ and VJ so you can dance, juggle or just chill out and watch. Knowing the usual juggling crowd there will be plenty of creative nonsense as the night wears on. Please remember the pavillion has limited heating so make sure you have spare layers in case it gets cold in the wee hours.


Workshops: We have limited space for workshops because we are on a pier although there will be space in the ballroom, outside on the pier, the bar and beach, weather permitting. If you would like to run a workshop you can arrange it on the day or email us. We will also be running circus skills workshops on the sea front for the general public.


Eats: The caf on the pier will be serving food all weekend. There are also plenty of places to eat in Colwyn Bay town only a short walk away.


Drinks: The pier bar and ballroom bar will be open during the convention for all your drinkly needs.


Traders: Jak, from Jesters in Cumbria, will be selling his wares so save your pennies for some shiny new props!

Other stuff to do: Colwyn Bay town is a short walk from the Pier for supplies and pubs etc. The Welsh Mountain Zoo is a good day out if you have kids and Llandudno and Snowdonia National Park are a short drive if you want to extend your stay. If you are into skiing or snowboarding Llandudno has a snowflex slope at the top of the Great Orme.

Accommodation: Hot off the press!!

We have now been able to negotiate 5 per person per night. So result there.

However DO NOT book in advance. Space will be set aside for us and we just turn up on the day with a thing from us saying that you are with Party on the Pier.

We will probably have this deal for Friday night too.

It's called Dinarth Hall campsite.

It's a few miles away from Colwyn Bay but there isn't much else around.
