AirCraft Circus, London’s leading independent circus school, has been training youth, adults and professionals in circus arts for the last 10 years, as well as creating and staging contemporary circus shows for the likes of Underbelly Festival, the London Olympics Opening Ceremony and Glastonbury.

Now, the south London institution is launching a brand new circus skills training academy in Woolwich that’s even bigger and better than its predecessor. The new training venue has been designed and built from scratch based on a new vision to create a leading circus training space in London available to all.

The modern facilities will match the unparalleled quality of Aircraft Circus teachers and reflect the company’s 10 years’ experience in training youth, adults and professionals in circus skills. Take classes in the likes of silks, ropes, static trapeze, flying trapeze, contortion, trampoline and more, including fitness classes.

It’s a great alternative to the gym for a more fun approach to fitness, or you can ramp up your commitment to the circus community by taking a Foundation or Intermediate Course in Circus Arts.

Located at Thames Side Studios, a creative hub in Woolwich, AirCraft Circus Academy’s new space comes equipped with new state-of-the-art facilities, three different studios to train in (a large circus training space with high ceiling, a fitness studio and a creation studio), as well as a dedicated stretching area, sauna, changing room and a kitchen/lounge area to refuel or rest after a work out.

The grand opening will take place on the weekend of 9-10 June 2018 with circus workshops, open tours and a brand new cabaret show, The Greatest Circus Show, celebrating 250 years of circus worldwide.
New students signing up over the weekend won’t have to pay a membership fee, so there’s never been a better time to run away with the circus!
