Gandini is a company set up to celebrate the art of juggling in all its facets. In the last decade they have performed 3000 shows in 40 countries and gained a reputation as one of the world’s most adventurous juggling groups.

We were hushed before beauty, gasping at slow amazing things that float and glow … The Gandinis made a calmer, better place of the South Bank. Magical, simply magical…

“Thank you so much for your professionalism and understanding at Friday’s Wanstead Fireworks event … we did manage to cobble a programme together and this was purely down to the co-operation, flexibility and understanding of the performers … I am sure we will get to work together again in future, hopefully drier events! Very best wishes to you all.”
