Pre-registration for the British Juggling Convention 2016 opened on 1st November. Pre-reg basically offers you early-bird ticket prices for the BJC, the biggest juggling event on the UK calendar.
The full price ticket for 2016's BJC is £120 but pre-register before 30th November 2015 and a ticket will cost you just £85. The prices go up to £95 between 1st December 2015 and 31st January 2016, thereafter you've got to pay full price.
The 2016 British Juggling Convention will be held in Perth (that's Scotland, not Australia!) from 30th March to 4th April 2016. Even at full price the British Juggling Convention is great value for money. Included in the price is five nights' camping, all workshops, all small shows (TBA) and the gala show ticket.
Apart from saving you money, there's another excellent reason to pre-register for the BJC. British Juggling Conventions are run by volunteers and many of the costs of holding such a large event need to be paid in advance. The more people pre-registering means less stress for the team of wonderful people who are putting this event on for us with no financial reward for themselves (the organisers even have to buy their own tickets!)
If you've not been to a British Juggling Convention before you should expect to share a leisure centre with some of the nicest, most talented and fun people these isles have to offer. During the day there will be workshops galore in every juggling, spinning and circus art and for every ability, even total beginners. There will be a parade into Perth city centre and the juggling games during one of the days. In the evenings you can expect amazing juggling shows, music, an inexpensive bar and the 24 hour juggling hall so there's no need to stop juggling.
The gala show is the main event of the week and will feature some of the world's greatest circus artists and jugglers. To get a flavour of previous BJC's have a read of our review from 2015 (we're sure it'll be less windy in 2016!) and watch the video below:
