Door World Summary. And E....

22nd August 2017

I have just finished unpacking the car from my gig tonight at Door World in Bristol. That’s right, tonight was D is for Door Shop on the ABC Tour, and it went a lot better than I was expecting. I have to be honest, as I was setting up, I had a funny feeling that this would be the show that no one would show up to. I felt anxious. The show was due to start at 6pm.

5:30pm: There was no one in sight. I was thinking of various scenarios; no one turns up, if so, what do I do? Do I still do the show? If I don't do the show, surely that means I haven't done D on the ABC Tour, so I’d have to either do the show to no one, or find and set up another D hoping that people would come to that one. Brain is playing various tricks on me. 

5:40pm: 1 person turns up. Similar thoughts go through my head; do I do the show to one person? Would that make them feel weird? It’d be easier to do the show to no one than to do it to one person!

5:45pm: The staff at Door World were giving me slightly concerning looks. I’m sweating. 

5:50pm: People start to turn up!

In total there were just over 20 people. It was a really good night and the staff at Door World were very accommodating and complimentary indeed. Thank-you to Gary, Dave, Rob and Jemma for letting me do a show at your delightful door shop! Video footage coming soon. 

What’s that? Where am I going for E? Well, I am heading to Cornwall to the iconic Eden Project! I will be performing a show in the stunning Rainforest Biome. It is going to be a blast! See details below:

More details coming for future events soon. If you have any suggestions for interesting venues, please get in touch.

"Jon was deservedly the headline performer at the 2010 Crawley Circus Festival show in the Hawth Theatre. His act went down really well with both the jugglers and the general public in the audience."
