JuggLINCOLNvention is one of, if not the newest UK juggling convention. It's also a contender for the prettiest convention in the country.
The location is Cabourne Parva, a fantastic venue set in the Lincolnshire countryside. It features a large field for camping and all your juggling, spinning and circus activities. There's also a lovely, well-maintained forested area if you need some shade to do your juggling. Other facilities include real toilets, showers, a burger van, cafe, bar, marquee and big top.
An extra day has been added to this convention so you can now camp for three nights and have two full days, plus two half-days, to enjoy the convention.
The workshop and show line up is looking amazing! Workshops include poi, devilsticks, hula hoop, acro, cigar boxes, contact juggling, balloon modelling, juggling, parkour, knitting and skipping! There will also be aerial masterclasses (for an extra £10) on the Sunday hosted by Fulcrum Circus.
Saturday night's show is looking spectacular! All the way from Australia we have poi aficionado, Tom Grinyer, showing us what modern poi manipulation is all about. The show also features no less than two National Centre for Circus Arts (formerly Circus Space) graduates. Matt Green is one of the UK's hottest jugglers right now and we can't wait to see him on this intimate stage. Frederike Gerstner, who graduated in 2006 and has since performed with the Gandinis and Feeding the Fish, will be amazing us with her solo club routine and piano playing. The show will also include aerial from Fulcrum Circus.
Other exciting things on offer include unicycle and slackline areas, a youth show and juggling games. If last year's weather is anything to go by there'll also be plenty of scope to simply chill out in the sunshine!
Tickets are still available via the website or on the door. At £20 for the whole weekend it's a total steal!
