The 32nd British Juggling Convention (BJC 2019) will be held at Harvey Hadden Sports Village, Nottingham.
The British Juggling Convention, also known as BJC, is one of the four largest juggling conventions in the world. Attendance can vary, but BJCs have attracted between 700 – 1,000 people in recent years.
The event is traditionally held at a different location during the Easter holidays every year and is organised by a new team of volunteers; “run by jugglers for jugglers“.
The 2019 BJC starts on Wednesday 10th April, and runs through until Sunday 14th April with Food By Veggies!

Save the Earth Cooperative are putting on a Community Market in Sneinton, on the First Friday of each month, to promote social eating here in Nottingham, a place where families can come out and enjoy some food from local Nottinghamshire producers at a fair price
All hot food and drink will be priced between £2.00 to £3.50 (no more than £3.50 per portion). We feel that Nottingham like elsewhere in the country going out is very expensive for families. At festivals & markets street food can be as much as £8, so a family of 4 or 6 with drinks on top can be an expensive night out. We also feel as a society we need to move away from the current drinking culture up and down our high streets & towns and adopt a more European approach to socialising, for families to come out to have a drink and some food with a bit of entertainment at an affordable price.
We are also passionate about tackling loneliness in our communities and affordable social eating we feel is a great way to get out and make new friends.
The event will also highlight the importance of food education, tackling food waste, Social Chefs, Ethical Products & Crafts; supporting local businesses, artisans and crafts people. With recycling and the reduction of single use plastics we are hoping to be able to be almost 100% plastic & disposable free.

The hackspace – a workshop and coworking space for the East Midlands, located close to the centre of Nottingham. It’s a place for makers and creatives to meet, learn, swap skills, and work on projects. It is run on a non-profit basis to serve your creative interests as a member.
Whether those are craft, electronics, woodwork, metalwork, knitting, programming, bike maintenance, prototyping, gadget modification, or even robotics, we have the kind of tools you don’t generally have room for at home, and the hackspace is constantly growing.
We hold open nights every Wednesday from 18:30
There’s no better way to start the festive season than at Brinsley Animal Rescue’s Christmas Open Day.
The sanctuary is run by volunteers and on vegan values, rescuing unwanted pets, injured wildlife and farm animal victims of the meat and dairy industry.
This year we will be having a Christmas open day at the rescue centre, where you can meet the animals and visit our cafe and stalls.
Plus we will also have our own stalls and outside stalls and charities at Brinsley Parish hall, which is a short walking distance from the rescue, on Cordy Lane, Brinsley NG16 5BY, where parking is available. There is no parking on site at the rescue centre.
Veggies and others will be providing vegan catering and literature to help compassionate people make the connection between the animals they’re visiting at the rescue and those that end up on their plate.
Come and see the animals, meet Santa, see the many stalls. Admission is £1 for adults and free to children when accompanied by an adult. Dogs on leads welcome.

Bread and Roses, Five Leaves Bookshop’s celebration of independent publishing, will run in mid-November, featuring a radical bookfair at a venue to be confirmed.
Veggies foods may be provided by the venue, but there will be a Veggies Bookstall, featuring Radical Routes, Movement for Compassionate Living & Scoffer publications, and more from PM Press & Active Distribution (& maybe some snacks too).
Nottingham Green Festival, to be held on Sunday 15th September 2019, is organised by a grass roots, community based, volunteer cooperative, with no regular statutory funding.
Join us at the next meeting of the planning group at Sumac Centre.

A peaceful Demonstration to raise awareness about the underlying exploitation of Greyhounds in racing.
Sadly, deaths and serious injuries to dogs running on the tracks are relatively common, and the existence of a major track like Nottingham is responsible for the putting to death of about 500 greyhounds every year.
According to a Guardian article: “Greyhound tracks are closing and the industry isn’t doing enough to care for the thousands of dogs who face an uncertain fate”
*Raise awareness about the plight of greyhounds bred for racing.
*Campaign for the abolition of commercial greyhound racing.
*Promote greyhounds as pets.
*The government to pass legislation making it illegal to place or accept bets on greyhound racing.*
*The general public to NEVER attend or bet on greyhound racing, so the industry fades away through lack of support.
Probably every 2 weeks, but call 07703 031667 to confirm.
