More danger!

Just one of the many popular heckles at the British Juggling Convention. If you want to perform, be prepared to be hailed with friendly shouts of “It can’t be done!”, “More danger!”, “Do it naked!” or “Do it on fire!”.

And what performances! The big names were there – Wes Peden, Jay Gilligan, Charlie Dancey, Matt Hall… and many more. The last week of workshops, shows and socialising with international jugglers has been truly awesome.

So far, this may not mean much to you. I would not be surprised if you have not experienced the thrills of juggling, diabolo, unicycling or knife throwing (among others). To those of you who have, you will understand my week-long euphoria. To the rest of you… go fetch some rolled-up socks and start juggling!

I have quite a lot to sort out before I return home tomorrow, so I will leave it at that for now. Have patience with me please, as I’m having to get back into the swing of writing creatively and regularly.

'Quintconsequential' is a word of my own invention, despite the definition in the style of the Oxford English Dictionary featured on the site. By all means, use it, whisper it, shout it from the rooftops. But please, remember that you heard it here first!
