So we’re giving you another chance. Yes, once again the Ministry of Manipulation are teaming up with the Jonglier Katakomben to give you their biggest workshop ever! Only this time it will be bigger, better, even more nutritious, and on the 6-10 April inclusive. Behind the scenes, manipulation ministers have been working hard to bring you over 30 hours allocated teaching time, more spaces, more in-depth and a wider range of workshops along with the extra curricular activities, which last year proved to be such a success.

Whether complete novice having only just picked up their first ball, or seasoned professional, we will fill your head with so much information, it’ll be close to exploding.

Alongside the all star MoMcast of Jea9, Colin and Ed to teach, we also have two special guest teachers. We have Das Supertalent that is Kelvin Kalvus ( added to the line up, who proved to be such a hit last year, along with a special appearance by Moon. We’ve all been working hard to bring to you the best teaching, and the best techniques to help you get the most out of your manipulation.
