Tour Scotland Video Juggler Medieval Fair Perth Perthshire



Tour Scotland video of a Juggler on the High Street at the Medieval Fair on ancestry visit to Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. A medieval juggler was a comic performer who often used humour alongside his juggling skills. A juggler generally only performed in public places such as in market places, in the street and at medieval fairs. To make a living of any kind, a juggler therefore had to rely upon his audience for tips. The equivalent today is what people refer to as a 'street entertainer' - a highly skilled juggler who can perform serious juggling feats as well as comic ones and who performs in public places such as market places in tourist resorts and cities or in special fairs and town/city celebrations. Sometimes they will be relying on tips from the public but, unlike in medieval times, they will often be professionally engaged for both public and private function performances.
