Be a Star in a Juggling Show!

If you're attending the Festival with some young 'uns in tow, then I can enthusiastically recommend you drop in on Be a Star in a Juggling Show at Zoo Venues. Californian jugglers Fred Anderson and Keith Eveslage know how to handle and audience of kids, and they have the ability to keep them focused for a full hour.

The first half of the show is a demonstration of their skills, including some very impressive tricks with the Diabolo. Fred & Keith bring out volunteers from the audience a various points, including Savannah, who impressed us with her juggling skill via the 'magic coat', and Claire, who learnt the power of audience control just using her arms. Even I was up on stage at one point.

The second half then sees everyone encouraged up, big or small, to have a go at juggling. There are silk scarves or tennis balls to choose from, the scarves being good for beginners due to their slow movement. It's all great fun, and Fred & Keith take time to ensure everyone gets included. The finale of the show gives the audience an opportunity to 'be a star' and show off what they've learnt, or just to have a ball Fred spin a ball on their fingers if they'd prefer. Great fun for kids and adults alike.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
