Juggling & Circus


The British Juggling Convention is one of the biggest, and longest running, juggling and circus-related festivals in the world. There is a 24-hour juggling hall, multiple high-ceiling workshop spaces, a central atrium and fields of green space outside.




Workshops


Our packed program of workshops covers all sorts of juggling and associated circus skills, from beginners 3 ball juggling, diabolo and hoop to aerial silks, unicycle and much more. The BJC is able to offer workshops for almost anybody's skillset or interests.




Shows


We have a timetable of fantastic shows which showcase some of the best performing talent from the UK and further afield. This includes a welcoming show on the Friday evening, an open stage show, and the "British Young Juggler of the Year" competition.

However, the most special thing about BJC is YOU. It's the attendees who really make the event, be it by sharing tricks informally in the hall or leading workshops, volunteering at checkpoints or serving beers, or getting up on stage in an Open Stage or Renegade. The UK juggling and circus community is loving, welcoming, and beyond compare and that's why it's still going after all these years. So, whether it's your 30th BJC or your first, you'll be sure to find a like-minded community to share your throwing, catching, twisting, spinning, swinging, balancing, and performing with.

As you might have guessed from the website, this year we have chosen to give the event a space theme.
