Juggling clubs is a joint magic and circus skills convention. It will be running over the Saturday and Sunday - with the Friday and Monday set aside for travelling to allow us to pack more in to the time.
Over the weekend there will be
There is a large indoor hall available for sleeping. Bring sleeping bags and floormats. The room will have hired security overnight, and a member of the convention team will always be present through the day to ensure the security of the room. The cost of this accomodation is included in the ticket price.
The venue is a little outside Lancaster town centre with regular buses, so there are also several hotel options and also nearby campsites (not included in ticket)
On site accomodation space is limited, and unfortunately we cannot allow under 18s to stay on site.
Showers are available at the campus sport centre. They cost 50p to use.
We will not be responsible for lost property. The campus is still open to the public during the convention, so please be aware of where you have left your belongings.
We have a zero-tolerance policy on possession or use of illegal substances. Anyone found with any such substance will be required to leave and will not be refunded. The matter will be reported to the police. Campus security will be around all weekend.
Unsurprisingly, this applies to any illegal activity, not just illicit substances.
Under-18s can come. However, they will not be allowed to stay in the on-site accomodation (site rules, not ours, sorry).
Under-5s can come at no cost.
People cannot cook on site but there are numerous food establishments around the campus; please check the options available here
Please do not bring your own alcohol onto the site. There will be a bar open onsite for us to use throughout the event.
In the event that the convention is cancelled, we will happily refund tickets. Otherwise, we cannot offer refunds.

This event is being held at Lancaster University - a short way outside of Lancaster. Practice/workshop spaces include three large dance studios that can be opened into one big room as well as seminar rooms for smaller workshops that may require tables and chairs. A large lecture hall is available for sleeping as well (limited spaces).
There are several Hotels in and around Lancaster, as well as one on-site itself. Prices given are a rough guide, a better deal may be available by contacting them directly or trying city stay booking sites. This list is not exhaustive by any means either.
Onsite Parking is free from 6pm Friday until 8am Monday. If you wish to remain parked and leave later on the Monday you will need to pay for the extra time.
On the Friday evening, we will be having a fire/LED spin so bring along your kit.
Our society Risk Assessment must be followed and a copy of this will be available on the day.
Fire spinning rules:
The fire spin event will be weather dependent.
Anyone acting not in line with the risk assessment or causing danger to themselves or others will not be permitted to spin/continue spinning with fire.
