This is a once off show featuring a handful of Juggling Legends who have been performing for several decades and who have made a significant impact on the world of juggling, both for jugglers and for the public. This could be either through amazing and beautiful performances, groundbreaking ideas, writing books, unbelievable tricks, and slick routines. Truly the world of Juggling would not be the same without the contribution made by each of these acts.
This is a once-off opportunity to see some of the Juggling Legends of our time, and as some of the Legends will be doing Masterclass workshops, you might get to learn a thing or two from them also!

Steve Mills needs little introduction to any juggling audience. Inventor of "Mills Mess", Steve is very excited to be coming to Millstreet in July to perform on our Legends Stage.
Born in 1957, Steve was taught to juggle by Ronald Graham, a juggler and one of the more famous names in discrete mathematics. Steve was a winner of the International Jugglers' Association Championships in 1975, 1976 and in 1978. In 1978, he married Carol Sue Haines and they began performing together. They were later accompanied by their children Michelle and Anthony as The Dazzling Mills Family. They have performed at Harlem Globetrotters basketball games and made numerous TV appearances including with The Penn and Teller Show, Daily Planet, The Statler Brothers Show, Most Daring, Smoking Gun Presents, and The Shotgun Red Variety Show.
2014 marks the 30th anniversary of this comedy juggling duo. From their early days on the streets of Bath, to becoming regulars at the Glastonbury festival, Winchester Hat Fair and far beyond, none who have seen them would deny them their "legendary" status.
Haggis has tutored many jugglers in person and through his videos, while Charlie has passed on his wisdom in book form, writing exhaustive tomes on both ball and club juggling, amongst others.
The act often seems to be a battle of exuberant personalities, but eventually they pull together for a rousing finale. Prepare your funny bones.
From a baton-twirling youth, Françoise learned to juggle at the age of 8, and made her first appearance on TV at 10. Registering Guinness world records and medals at various circus competitions whilst still only in her teens, in her 20-year professional career she has been an IJA gold medal winner, registered more Circus festival awards, and appeared on TV and variety venues across the world. Whether with batons, parasols, tennis rackets, clubs or rings, Françoise's shows are an exercise in elegance, and an inspiration to any young female juggler… or male juggler, come to that!
