Summer is such a busy time!
We’ve got our first group outing this Saturday (11th July) at Lampeter’s People’s Market, followed by a full weekend at Inspirali Festival (18th and 19th July) where I’m going to be experimenting with Walkabout activities with my changeling crew (three lovely ladies from Lampeter, Maurice the Gryphon and possibly some Cwn Yarnwn, AKA “Yarn Hounds” or “Story Sniffers”!).
Then, on 25th July, follows the Lampeter Food Festival, one of the biggest local events of the year, where we’ll be on Walkabout in the afternoon and I have the final slot in the entertainments tent to tell tales and bring the Goblin Circus to life for half an hour!
I have to admit, I’ve booked the following two weekends off to recover, as it’s our one year wedding anniversary and my 30th birthday, but it won’t be without adventure as there is the Cardigan Belly Dance festival to dance at…
August will be a time to catch up, prepare for the autumn (and work on my thesis) so that come 6th of September, when Celf Yn Y Coed (Art in the Wood; a day of arts, crafts and performance in Longwood nr Lampeter) kicks off, I’ll be ready to host the performance stage (and we’ve got a Goblin Circus workshop in the works for that too. On 19th September we’ll be on Walkabout duty, ushering people between venues at the Make Lampeter Festival, and co-creating a mini circus show with whoever joins us for our workshop 🙂
There are plots for later in the year too, but I reckon that’s plenty for your diary to gobble up for now!
So I apologise for the quietness of the online Big Top and I hope you can see that there is a lot going on behind the scenes. I’ve been updating our Facebook page with sneak peeks of a sweet shop themed show and various crafts and happenings – (Goblin Circus on Facebook) – and I look forward to enacting some of the plans for this site I have in the works.
Oh, and finally, you may have noticed a change in the web-design today… do please let me know what you think.
Now, I’d best get a bit of philosophy on the page before packing some more boxes. We’re also moving home this month!
