Well, that was scary! Ever since we heard the news that the European Juggling Convention (EJC) 2015 had lost its Berlin and then Karlsruhe venues the word on the street was there would be no EJC in 2015.
The unthinkable looked set to happen; the first year without an EJC in its 37 year history. The European Juggling Association, the non-profit organisation who's main task is to facilitate an EJC every year, was set to make an announcement at this year's convention in Millstreet, Ireland. Most people expected this to confirm the bad news, however we were pleasantly surprised.
A team and venue has been found to host the EJC 2015, which will take place in Bruneck in the Italian alps.
We're excited about this location as, like Millstreet, it's another small town in a beautiful part of the world that we'd probably never visit except to attend an event like this. The summer alpine setting is bound to be stunning!
The dates are, as yet, unconfirmed but word has it they're looking at the first week in August.
We'll keep you updated with any further news on the EJC 2015 so watch this space...
