Saturday 13th November
11am Convention starts - workshops during day run by volunteers (please volunteer!), plus videos showing and trader(s).
4pm Combustion Chamber closes to prepare for show (good time to go and watch the Lord Mayor's Fireworks)
5pm Lord Mayor's fireworks. The display is fired from a barge moored on the Thames between Waterloo and Blackfriars bridges, so great views can be had from either of these, or from anywhere on the Embankment between the two. Find a good spot, dress warmly and prepare yourself for an unforgettable show.
7pm Bar opens
8pm The Circus Space Cabaret
The delightful and delectable Dave Pickens is our host for the evening. He's also one half of Swizzleshaker, who mix a dash of circus with a double measure of swing dance, topped with lashings of comedy in "Cocktails for Two".
There are two awesome aerial acts - the fantastic Ilona Jantti from Finland and, soaring above your heads on the Cloudswing, the startling Lucie Pasquier.
Meanwhile, in Bongo Bolero, the beautifully balanced Penny and Bernie redefine your expectations of a slick acrobatic act. Watch them and weep.
For an act with a difference, observe the pole play and diabolo finery of Bruce Wilson, and, finally, whatever else you choose to do, don't miss the dockyard antics of Hamburg's hula-hoop hero, Tigris.
10pm End of Saturday's events
Sunday 14th November
11am Convention continues with workshops (please volunteer!), videos and trader(s).
