Circus skills at Bath Spa Uni (18 Feb)

Thanks to everyone who came along to the Juggling and circus skills taster workshop at Moreton on 18 Feb. It was great to see about 20 students there. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the chance to practise their skills and have a go at juggling, poi, staff, devilstick, plate spinning and diabolo. Special thanks to Gravity Vomit (students from University of Bath) who led the session.
Hopefully the workshop will have inspired some Bath Spa students to come to the Bath UpChuck on Saturday 27 Feb.

Bath Festival of Illumination update

Plans are progressing and we're supporting a group of students to lead on marketing and sponsorship. We're aiming to develop the festival logo, branding and website ready to launch at the end of April.

Last week Arts and Business led a training session in arts sponsorship for students and staff at the university. It was very informative and I think we're now in a much better position to put together a sponsorship package and proposal. We're also busy encouraging students and staff to get involved by producing creative work for the festival.
