Emma Ball

Matt being juggled around at Emma May Ball.We attended our second ever Cambridge May Ball on Monday night. The troupe was booked to perform at 2am, so we had a lot of time to kill, about 1 and a half hours of which was taken up by standing in line for food at one of the several hamburger/crepe stands that seem to be at every ball. This left us a little bored, so I decided to take part in a juggling demo (involving one of my co-workers as I later learnt). That’s a bread-stick in my mouth, by the way.
