Jamboree Programme: Zone of the Moment

Zone 19 – Live @ EIJ

If live music is your thing, then come along to one of the stages at EIJ in the evening and see who's playing there. There will be dance routines, acoustic performances and a variety of other forms of art as well. And if you fancy taking to the stage you will be able to sign up at the jamboree for a 10-15 minute slot on one of the busking stages. You can perform whatever your skill is - magic, comedy, acoustic, singing, instrumental, dance, gymnastics performance - anything you would like to show to others at the jamboree. The more variety we have, the better. Remember to bring anything with you to the jamboree that helps with your performance.

There are 30 exciting programme zones taking place throughout the Jamboree.

See the rest!
