Posted:The Super Awesome Galway Juggling Convention is BACK for another year!!

This year it will definitely be BIGGER and BETTER than the last convention, with super fantastic international acts, a great fire show, renegade show and maybe even a "public" show.

The sun came out for most of last year and we've booked the weather again for this year, so bring your sunnies and some sunscreen.

Most or all of the events will be held in NUI, Galway with the bulk of the weekend being spent in the HUGE Bailey-Allen Hall.


Without going on too much, the breakdown so far is as follows...

Friday, 28th May:

6pm: Meet 'n' Greet in the HUGE Bailey-Allen Hall in NUI, Galway. Get our juggle on. No workshops this evening, just a fair bit of messing about. The hall will be open till midnight.

8pm: Yay, it's a fire show!! Same venue as last year, the back of the College Bar, which is right beside the hall. Anyone welcome to come up and perform!

Saturday, 29th May:

10am: Hall is open till midnight. Juggling, poi spinning, diabolo, devil sticks, unicycling, everything!! Workshops aplenty all day.

The public show will be held at some stage on Saturday, and it will be epic!!

8pm: RENEGADE SHOW!!! Venue TBC.

Sunday, 30th May:

10am: Hall opens till 6pm / midnight. Workshops aplenty, big practice space, more workshops!

2pm: Games, games, games!!

6pm / midnight (whichever really): Hometime, boo! And the BIG Toss Up.

grin YAY!!!!!!

Workshops include...

Simple 3 Ball with Mike, Beginner Devil Stick with Brian, Intermediate 3 Ball and Beginner 4 Ball with Oisin, Rings with Steve, Passing with Nick, Club Manipulation and Scissor Catches with Dara.
