Flying Trapeze Tasters | Portland Square | Saturdays & Sundays

Held on regular Sundays (1.5 hours) and our Full Flying Days (1 hour),  taster sessions offer a quick hit of flying adrenaline. Always fancied trying it to see if you love it or hate it? This is the class for you. You will have a couple of chances to take off the platform and have a few swings, getting used to the process under the guidance of our expert tutors.

First-time flyers will fly attached to safety lines which are connected to your harness. This then allows our experienced tutors on the floor to ‘lunge’ you and keep you safe during your take off, swing, and landing.

After taking off you’ll swing back and forth across the space, and at the caller’s instruction you’ll let go to land in the safety net. It can feel daunting but our tutors will make sure you always feel safe and secure – and the second you leave the platform, you’ll be hooked on the feeling of swinging through the air!

Please note that this class is suitable for beginners only and it will not be possible to try complex tricks or catching (the process of being caught from your bar by another tutor). It’s designed to give you a taste of flying trapeze and get you used to how it feels – if you love the feeling, you can then look at booking onto one of our longer beginners’ & improvers’ classes which always include a round of catching.

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


St Paul’s Church, Portland Square, BS2 8SJ


The price is the same for 1 or 1.5h sessions, as the longer sessions include time to set up or take down the net – so the flying time is the same!
