Culture Night is a special night in the calendar for organisations to showcase what they do year round….and it’s completely free.
Learn juggling with Brendan at the City Library or in Opera Lane Unit 3.
You can also enjoy the antics of Wobbly Circus as they meander along the Lane!
These workshops focus on fun, achievable tricks with a variety of different juggling props, to make sure that every person leaves with a feeling of accomplishment and pride. Juggling is non-competitive and the skills taught are easily accessible for all. Since every group is different, Brendan adapts each workshop to match the age, skill level, and skill spread of the class.
Brendan will be throwing open his cases of juggling equipment for everyone to pick up a prop and have a go! Learn to balance a feather, spin a plate, juggle 3 balls or manipulate a flower stick in this informal workshop. Come along and try what you like – no previous hand-eye coordination needed! Go your own way, make up your own tricks, or learn something new. Juggler Brendan will be on-hand with helpful tips for anyone who wants them!

This is free range circus with added bass! The roving acts add colour, excitement and crowd interaction to this culture night event!

We are delighted with the support of Opera Lane for all our City Centre appearances
