So for the first time in about 10 years the british weather got the better of me. The downpour that fell on Derby this weekend meant that there was no way that the great british public would stand and watch a show... so the authorities, in this case derby city council decided to cancel the event. This was a shame but was definitely the right thing to do. But let it be known people... ChangoFuego will work in pretty much any weather... but I guess it's really down to what weather the watchers will watch in. Here's to a glorious non monsoon-like summer. Hapy Bbq-ing!
On a more positive note, I had my first workshop delivering Circus Skills for Derbyshire Dales working in a lovely village up near Buxton. It's a really interesting programme trying to deliver part of the physical exercise program for the primary curriculum through Circus Skills. This is great in that Circus satisfies many of the pre-requisites of the physical curriculum needed to be delivered by schools but it also is something that kids can do at home, is really good fun and you don't need a huge playing field to do it on. I actually delivered this last one in a church. Kids loved it.. Teachers found that they were able to be one step of the kids so they will be able to deliver it in the future giving the project a legacy and all in all everyone had a great day. Viva Circus!!
