Extreme Unicycling Championship

There will be several different events to participate in, including but not limited to: Flatland, Trials, Speed Trials and High Jump. The team will be creating a fantastic trials course in the run up to the EJC and it will be available for training and practicing over the first half of the event. At the end of the week the competitions will begin. We will publish more information soon with details of each discipline and how to enter. We anticipate having beginners and advanced sections.

Western Arts

Here in the UK there is an ever growing community of Western Arts enthusiasts. At the EJC there will be an extensive area dedicated to throwing ranges, whip workshops, lasso lessons and gun spinning. Again there will be competitive sections for beginners and more advance competitors. There will be a lot more information about how to enter the competitions on here soon.

Fight Night

Also known as Fight Night Combat, Fight Night is the one-on-one three club combat tournament that take place at juggling conventions, festivals, and other events.

Three club combat is the juggling sport with only one simple rule: The last person juggling wins! No convention is worth anything these days without a Fight Night and the EJC is the biggest one of the lot! Check out the timetable to find the time of the qualification heats and final.


Diabolo Battle

Do you have some super slick diabolo tricks up your sleeve? This event is the chance to pit your skills against others. We are working out the specifics and will announce more when they are all arranged.

European Young Circus Performer

This is a brand new event which has been modelled on the successful British Young Juggler of the Year (BYJOTY) competition that happens every year at the British Juggling Convention.

We are working out the specific details, however it will be open to all people under the age of 18 from any country in the world - so Germany, France, Brazil, USA, Britain, anywhere!

As the title indicates the event is open to any performer of any circus discipline, dependant on the number of entries, will be split into age groups. The heats will be held in the Magpie Tent and the judges will choose several acts who will then compete in a special show held in the Open Stage tent in front of a much bigger audience.
