I have had a hectic few days. I had promised to give a pre-show talk while Circus Oz performed at the Millenium Centre, so on both Thursday and Friday I got to pontificate about the history of circus, 'new' circus, non-animal circuses, etc.
On Saturday I went to the AGM for NoFit State Circus and heard reports of a successful summer, in which they won several awards, and I got elected as a Trustee,too. I am still not entirely sure I understand all the obligations of a Charity Trustee, but enough to accept the responsibility.
The AGM happened in their new training space for the winter - in a large hall at the back of the Ebenezer (no jokes at the back please)Church. Somewhere high enough to rig ropes and trapezes and the like.
According to this site:
The following classes/workshops are planned:
Mondays: 8pm-10pm Intermediate Trapeze £4 (tutored)
Tuesdays: 7pm-8:30pm Acrobalance Beginners £3 (tutored)
Wednesdays: 8pm-10pm Acrobalance Skillshare £2 (experience required)
Thursdays: 7pm-8pm Unicycle Hockey £1
8pm-10pm Juggling workshop £2
Classes are planned to start week beginning 21st Nov, but it depends how many people are interested so if you would like to attend any of the classes call the Nofit State office on 029 2048 8734.
The party on Saturday night left me pretty ragged on Sunday - and now I am back to work.
