Lestival (Leicester convention) 21st June 2008
« on: June 05, 2008, 06:40:52 pm »
I thought Lesticle should have a thread by now.  The venue sounds great, Leicester is pretty easy to get to, and it even features Jon/fanboy/jgherkin and Langerz in the show!

Looking forward to it,
Dave

Why wasn't this posted before!? Oh and Dave you said that "Leicester is pretty easy to get to" is this by car, train or coach? I've just spent a fair amount of money booking stuff for this summer and my cash is quickly running out. Any ideas on the cheapest/best way to get there?

Not sure on the cheap bit, but it's fairly central, has good rail links, and is close to the M1. 

If you're going from Liverpool to Leicester by train (useful info for me and for Leo at least), get the London train and change at Nuneaton.  Much easier and quicker than the Birmingham route which seems to be the most commonly taken one.

And it's always worth keeping an eye on http://www.jugglingdb.com/events/index.php?country=222 to see what events are coming up.

I'm in the show, too! Not diabolo, to be fair, but I'll be there nonetheless.

Bah, too much hassle to get down there from here. Guess I'll have to miss this one. Unless someone near here wants to pick me up and drive down.

It looks like Langerz had to pull out of the show as well - guess I won't miss his debut performance, yet.

Just a quick reminder for everyone that this is on this coming weekend.

We have loads planned and a really high ceiling for anyone wanting to try 5 diabolos

Hope to see plenty of you there.

Plumsie.

I had a really good time on Saturday. For all those that didn't come, shame on you. I may cross post an HLGCB from rec.juggling, once I've written it.

For now, though, all I'll say is that the space is incredible, and Jon Fanboy's routine was flawless.

Talking with Dave and reading about it on rec.juggling makes me so jealous that I couldn't go :(.

Does anyone have film of John's routine? I'm eager to see his stuff.

There were a couple of people filming, but they'll have to wait for the performers permission before putting it online, unless they're feeling particularly discourteous.
