So on Saturday (March 19th 2011) I went to the Bangkok Juggling Club it was a lots of fun and I fully recommend it if you are ever in Bangkok. We got to the park a little early around 2 ish and there was only one other person there however by 4.30 ish there was a really good turnout of jugglers, poi spinners, hoopers and there was even someone with buugeng. I’m told that people go to the park most days unless it’s raining but the weekends are more popular. The location of the park is Santichai Prakarn Park near the Khaosan road see the map below.
I really enjoyed the experience of playing with people with the language barrier it was really interesting although hard at times trying to teach how to hyperloop through sign language and demonstration certainly wasn’t the easiest thing.
Interestingly my play Sil-X implosion juggling balls seemed to go down like a storm with all the Thai jugglers they were being passed around like hot potatoes. And another amusing thing was that there were little kids running around picking up props and generally having a great time so you really had to make sure you kept an eye on all your props especially once it got dark.
