Our beginners’ flying trapeze sessions offer complete newcomers the opportunity to try this ultimate aerial skill on a full-sized indoor rig. No previous experience is necessary, and you will be guided and supported by our expert tutors at all times.

Participants will practice key techniques on the static trapeze, before climbing to the ‘platform’ – suspended 5m from the ground over our safety net – flying across to the catcher and back to the platform. You will have the opportunity to hone the basics, working with our highly experienced professional tutors to make sure you are safe and get the most out of your time in the air.

Opportunities to experience this remarkable apparatus are few and far between – Circomedia is one of only two centres in the UK with a full-sized, indoor Grand Volant rig.

These sessions are 18+. For ages 10-18 please see Under 18s Flying Trapeze
