About Geordie Juggling Archives

Geordie Juggling Archives is a blog where I’ll share the history of juggling performance in my part of the world through the articles, stories, pictures and plans of jugglers who have passed through .

I live in Gateshead, in the North East of England, and I’ll be looking for material from the golden age of the British variety stage, from about 1880 to 1920. I’m sure I’ll stray outside those dates sometimes, and I’ll probably pick up some interesting stuff which is only tangentially related to juggling, but I hope it’ll interest and inspire you anyway.

If you’d like to look into the history of the performers and venues in your own area then have a look at the Sources page for some ideas on where to begin.
