A badge (presumed).
was held in Bath Pavilion on Sunday the first day of the convention
The games were held in the public square adjacent to Bath Abbey, beside the Pump Room of the Roman Baths, which was surely the most spectacular background ever for BJC games. Games included 5-egg cascade endurance, and unicycle jousting.

Notes and other details
Camping was provided some miles away in the walled kitchen garden of a stately pile.
It was bloody cold. Mind you most of the circus trucks parked behind Bath sports centre and the Parade took over the city, fantastic show in the Pavilion, circus theatre was on the map.
The dates (26-27/3/89) are from the sweatshirt photo, meaning the convention was from Easter Sunday to bank holiday Monday.
