Our Flying Trapeze classes offer you the chance to discover this most dramatic aerial circus skill. At our spectacular venue in St Paul’s Church you’ll learn to fly on the only indoor full-sized rig in the UK!
Due to Covid-19 social distancing restrictions, we are currently not able to run any Flying Trapeze sessions right now. However, we hope to be back soon!
Flying Trapeze Gift Vouchers
We know Flying Trapeze sessions are a popular gift, so why not buy a Gift Voucher so that your recipient can book their own session when we’re back up and running? We’ve given some guide prices below, and you can include a message with your voucher to say that you’d like them to book for Flying Trapeze!
Sessions are normally held on our Full Flying Days, approx. once a month throughout the year on a Saturday or Sunday. We occasionally have bank holiday sessions or evening sessions, and in the summer we also have an outdoor programme! We’ll roll out booking dates as soon as we know more about when sessions can return.
Indoor flying takes place at St Pauls Church, BS2 8SJ. Summer outdoor sessions take place at the Kingswood Estate, BS15 8DB.
Sessions and Guide Prices
Please note that timings and pricings may be subject to change in the future.
Flying Trapeze Tasters (18+)
A 1-hour session to get a feel for gearing up, climbing the ladder, taking off from the platform and swinging, and gracefully landing in the net. Perfect for anyone who wants to trial flying before committing to a longer session!
Beginners’ & Improvers’ (18+)
A 2.5-hour session gives you more time to get to grips with the basics, and start to work on some simple tricks such as swinging from your legs and working with a catcher (a second trapezist who catches your wrists from the other side). Perfect for first-timers or those who have done just a few sessions before, or want to continue working on nailing the basics.
Intermediate & Advanced (18+)
A 2.5-hour session for flyers with a good amount of flying experience. Students should be cleared to swing out of lines and comfortable working on the platform without belt holds. These sessions will allow you to really step it up a notch and work on more complex tricks, returns, and catches.
Beginners’ Under 18s Flying Trapeze
A 2-hour session for children aged 10+ who want to take to the skies! There’s plenty of time to get a few swings in and try some tricks. We recommend that students are at least 4’7″ in height, because this is a full-sized rig and can be tricky for shorter students. However, get in touch if you’re not sure as there are often workarounds.
Improvers’ Under 18s Flying Trapeze
A 2-hour session for children aged 10+ who have done a few flying sessions before, and are starting to work on more complex tricks. We recommend that students are at least 4’7″ in height, because this is a full-sized rig and can be tricky for shorter students. However, get in touch if you’re not sure as there are often workarounds.
