BJC 2018 is coming to Canterbury!

BJC 1988 London

In 1987 British jugglers held a meeting at the European Juggling Convention in Saintes, France and decided that there should be an annual national convention in the UK for jugglers to meet and share ideas. Max Oddball, Susi Oddball and Charlie Holland were already organising a festival in London that followed on from the Covent Garden Juggling Festival that ran up until 1987. It was decided that this would become the first British Juggling Convention.
