  12. great, thanks! we just had our first circus in the park event and went really well and was really popular with those that came. Got lots of people along (lots of children and their families) and they all had a go at learning new skills and picked up everything impressively! going to be making poi next week too so to have you and anyone else along be fantastic. If when you turn up you ask for Roanna or Dave (i not there til 17th and 23rd now), they are the main people co-ordinating the event next week. Be great to have you joining in the fun (hopefully this good turn of weather last til then)... Yes, we do have events at weekends. In fact our events usually take place each month on Sunday afternoons, but as it the school holidays we decided to do midweek this month. We don't always have such a circus skills theme as are for August but always have some diabolo and poi equipment with us for people to try alongside other creative activities!
