British Juggling Convention 2017 - Nottingham
This year's BJC is nearly upon us! If you haven't yet bought a ticket, have no fear! You will be able to purchase a ticket from the registration desk from the 7th April. We are celebrating our 30th anniversary in style with an underwater themed convention. So bring your best octopus costumes (bonus points for anyone who dresses and juggles like our mascot Bernie!) and your swimwear for the first ever pool party.
Before you turn up at here at Harvey Haddon, Nottingham, here's few important things to take note of before arriving...
- Please do not arrive before 5PM on the 7th April, as you may be turned away!
- If you wish to purchase additional tickets for this year's gala show, Balance: A Circus Showcase, you can do so here. And to find out more about this year's fantastic lineup, visit our Gala Show page.
- And for heaven's sake, don't forget your juggling gear! If you are looking at purchasing a new set of clubs or a new bearing diabolo, then you're in luck, as we have a great set of traders this year.
And if this hasn't got you excited enough already, check out the list of workshops we have planned.
BJC is heading back to Nottingham for the 30th Anniversary of the British Juggling Convention!
Get ready for another fun filled week of juggling, spinning, hooping, workshops, shows, games and more! The British Juggling Convention, also known as BJC, is one of the four largest juggling conventions in the world. Attendance can vary, but in recent years BJCs have attracted between 700 – 1,000 people. The event is traditionally held at a different location during the Easter holidays every year and is organised by a new team of volunteers; "run by jugglers for jugglers".
This year our event starts on the evening of Friday 7th April and runs through until the morning of Thursday 13th April 2017. Count the days people! We are so excited, it's going to be epic, we are returning to the Harvey Haddon Sports stadium in Nottingham and the Gala show, on Sunday 9th April, will once again be at the fantastic Royal Concert Hall.
So what’s it all about?
The event is for all forms of juggling and object manipulation, plus many other circus skills. The BJC usually features many workshops during the day, shows in the evenings, and a public show on the Sunday. Check out the video from BJC2016 below.
