European Festival of Juggling

I mentioned in passing in my cricket blog  post yesterday about this event, which I think is running all week up at the Showground where they have put up huge circus tents for the week of entertainment they are having this week.

Yesterday, they took over the town, and I don't think there has ever been such a vibrant, colourful and exciting event ever seen here. By god the town needed it, a drab place culturally with an increasing amount of nasty and random acts of anti-social behavior. Ugh, sound like a middle aged tory.

Some of the shows were spectacular, although I missed the fire show on the Riverside Park. There was abseiling and acro-displays on the Town Hall, one involving a girl swinging from a chandelier harnessless at a pretty dizzying height.

The dazzling people made me feel very dull and made me want more out of life.
