Friday, 19 October
7 pm – 10 pm: open juggling and workshops in the KCVI Gym
Sunday, 4 November
10 am – 5 pm: open juggling and workshops in Wallace Hall
There will be workshops on a variety of topics, hosted by expert jugglers, throughout the festival. All workshops are free; all you need to do is show up!
Learn to juggle workshops will be on Saturday at 11am and 1pm. Thanks to a donation from Pure Circus the first ten (at least!) people who come learn to juggle will get a set of three high quality juggling balls from Higgins Brothers.
The workshop schedule will also be posted in the main juggling hall.
Hotels. Unfortunately the festival coincides with Queen's University Homecoming Weekend this year, which means that almost every hotel room in a 40 km radius is already booked. Yes, we're sorry; there were Reasons.
If you’re looking for crash space, contact Greg Phillips and we’ll try to set you up.
