It started in 2000 as a one day event, and has now expanded to a full weekend, with many people arriving on the Friday evening to make the most of it! It's the perfect excuse to catch up with old friends, make new ones and sink a sociable amount of fine ale in some of the UK's most beautiful countryside.
There is juggling to be done, mountains to unicycle up and down and food to be eaten! So bring some beer, some balls, a BBQ and join the fun!
Early afternoon on Friday 14th June to early afternoon on Sunday 16th June 2013
The event itself is free, but there is a small charge payable to the campsite to cover the camping, This year, the cost is £10 per person, per night... an absolute bargain if you ask us!
Rothay Park Football Ground, Ambleside, The Lake District, UK.
The campsite is fairly basic, although there are toilets and showers available on site. There's no site shop, but the shops aren't too far away! We're allowed to have BBQs on the hard standing, but no cooking on the pitch please!
For those of you that remember, this is the same site that we used for the Lakes Convention back in 2002
Public Transport: The best option seems to be to get the train to Windermere, then a bus to Ambleside, Then armed with a printout of the Google map of Ambleside you should be able to find us. We are down a lane opposite the T junction where Wansfell Road meets Rothay Road.
For local bus times etc, you may find www.traveline.org.uk useful.
Car: Ambleside is quite a large place, and if you pootle along the A591 you should find us quite easily!
If you like! We can't guarantee that there will be much to see apart from 60-100 jugglers sitting around, drinking, chatting and having fun... but you're welcome to turn up and join in anyway! Here is a video of us from 2005 it shows what to expect from us.
If you talk to us nicely, we may even teach you to juggle!
Certainly! Email email@example.com and we'll do our best to answer your questions!
