This week I drove 2.5 hours to do a 45 minute show at Kiln Park in Tenby, to then drive 2.5 hours home. In theory, except for the show, this doesn't sound like a good evening at all. A Wednesday evening in March at a holiday park, in all honesty, seems like it would be quite bleak. The show room was approximately 20% full. Oh, and outside, it was raining a lot. Audiences members, in their dozens, sheltering from the rain, on their holiday. The situation was destined to be a failure. HOWEVER, it went surprisingly well!

A student on the BTEC at Circomedia contacted me the other day asking if I would answering 10 questions for an interview. I thought I'd release them and my answers as this weeks blog post. Yes I know, it's a bit of a cop out, but hey, it's my blog post, my rules.
1. How long have you been juggling and how did you get into it?
18 years ago, when I was 10 years old, I was a member of the Cornish Magical Society (hold yourself back ladies, I’m already taken). Once a week my parents would taken my along to the club where I would meet with hobbiest and professional magicians, and I’d get the chance to talk shop. I was by far the youngest in the group and totally in awe of these wizards.
A few weeks ago, I saw a Facebook post from a photography student saying that she is looking for performers to do a photoshoot in their own homes. My girlfriend Pippa needed some new photos, we don’t have any photos of us together in performing “get-up”, and the idea of a photoshoot where we didn’t even have to leave the house seemed very appealing indeed.
This week I have been teaching the intensive juggling week at Circomedia to the first years; 10 students, 1 week, many hours, enthusiasm overflow from the students, and my nonsensical notepad. I will try and upload the video soon, but I need to get permission from all of the students first. But in a nutshell, they killed it. They were all super attentive despite their juggling levels being very different and some of the classes being rather intense.

"Jon did a 45min set for us for our wedding in February 2017 and he was AMAZING!!!! Had our guests in fits of laughter and really was fantastic if you are looking for something to lift the energy after a wedding meal, but not do the predictable magician or live band.
