To all southeast englanders, no idea how many of you there are but I am in the process of starting up a circus jam/workshop in lewes. It will hopefully be held at the all saints centre or the st Mary's village hall. A Facebook page with more details should be online when I get back from Glastonbury and I will post the link on here. Hopefully I'll see you there!
Yay for more stuff in the South! I'm unlikely to be a regular but I will definitely visit when I can (please don't meet on Monday, Tuesday or Saturday!).
Awesome! I'll see what I can do, Monday there is a club in hove, Wednesday is hoop o'clock and Thursday is USCS so that leaves Tuesday's and Friday's but I guess it's going to be governed more by the availability of the hall
Blimey, I remember going to the Lewes club in 96-98. Good luck with starting one up again!
This is the best idea I've ever heard! Let me know if you need any help. I would definitely attend. What day are you thinking it would be on? Better not to clash with the brighton clubs, so not Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.
Great, yeah it's definitely needed! Which Brighton club is on Tuesday? Thursday is USCS and I thought hoop o'clock was Wednesday? Some help would be much appreciated, I have a ton of circus gear I'm going to see this guy on the weekend who's looking to sell all his all juggling stuff. My email is [removed]
I thought that Hoop o'clock was on Tuesday. You're right that USCS is now Thursday, not Wednesday, so Wednesday may be free. Have you thought about how you'll publicise it in Lewes?
You probably shouldn't put your email on web like that. You may end up getting a lot of spam.
Right yeah true, my bad. Yep I think Wednesday will be prime. I was just thinking of a Facebook page, some posters around town and spreading the word.
There's no way of removing that post is there? my email is on the internet in other place for work purposes like many people, so hopefully will okay.
I'm going to have to ask a small entry from people to cover the cost of the hall. Which unfourtuently isn't cheap everywhere I've asked so far. But It will be great to have a more local space to juggle with a high ceiling
I've removed your email address from the post in question.
Really don't know why people worry about spam nowadays though. Google in my opinion solved the problem long ago, I can't remember the last spam message I saw on any of my gmail accounts. If you want to post an address publicly (& you do, because then people can contact you) then set up a gmail account & have it forward messages to your regular email account.
Update - all saints are very keen to have a circus club/workshop however they don't have the slot I asked for but they have let me know what they do have free, which are as follows, 5 - 630 on Thursdays, 830 - 1030 on a Monday and on a Wednesday it is available from 915 - 1030. What do you make of that?
Thursday seems the best to me as USCS doesn't go on till late though it would still be a shame to clash and it being late will discourage a number of people to attend?
Malling community centre said they have there hall free Wednesday 5 - 7 which is doable ( I'd have to leave work early) plus it has the bonus of being on malling field for nice days and after 7
I think that All Saints is the better location with a higher ceiling. I wouldn't be able to get to any club before 18h so I wouldn't go for Thursday. The best I think would be to have it on Monday. The Brighton and Hove club on Monday doesn't have many regular attendees and will be closing down within a few months anyway due to the building being sold.
That's a shame about the hove club. I've asked for the Monday slot and should hear back tomorrow and then when it's confirmed I will start in the publicity
