42nd European Juggling Convention

Everyone is welcome

The European Juggling Convention (EJC) is historically one of world’s biggest social gatherings of Jugglers, Aerialists, Hula Hoopers, Flow artists, Extreme Unicyclists, Whip Crackers and Knife Throwers. A festival of talent and skill but also fun and relaxation. In 2019, in it's 42nd year, we are bringing it to the UK and we want YOU to be there!

Convention or Festival

Convention = a large meeting of a particular interest group. Festival = an event celebrated by a community. Which ever definition you choose for the EJC, we invite you to take a week out of your regular life and come to the EJC. Never been before? Now is your chance to find out if what everyone says is true. Will you discover or renew : a love of all things circus? Make or meet up with life long friends? Learn something new? Watch something incredible? Have fun? The answer is a resounding yes!

British Countryside

We are super excited to be holding the event here in the UK and we invite people from all over the world. Come and experience our juggling festival here in the heart of the British Countryside. Existing Juggling or Circus skills are not required!

Share with all your friends

Over the next year we will be working hard to make this event awesome. We do, however, still need your help! So finally, we ask, please share our event with anyone you think might be interested, and maybe some who might not, who knows they might have a secret desire to learn how to crack a whip!

Organisation

British Roots

Did you know that the first four EJCs, way back in the late 1970’s, were in fact hosted in Great Britain? Those events were pretty small, with less than fifty people attending. They definitely didn't have any of the features we have all grown to expect from an EJC. Fortunately, the community has grown to thousands!

Jugglers for Jugglers

Have you heard the term 'For Jugglers by Jugglers'? It is the core ethos of most events run within our community. It means that everyone lends a hand, everyone has their part to play and at the core is volunteering. No one takes a wage and by not doing so the event is affordable to all..

Team Players

In recent times we have seen a rise in enthusiasm for juggling event organisation in Britain. The core crew have an excellent track record in Juggling event organisation. All of them having either been head honcho, site manager, show organiser / producer or major team player at many Juggling Conventions held in Britain over the last ten years.

Excited

Our team is so very excited to be bringing the event to the UK! Be sure to talk to them about it at length, at any event you see them!
