When and where does it start?
Doors open on Friday night at 6.30pm with meals available. There will be a taster class around 7.30pm, then social dancing from 8.30pm until midnight. Venue is The Trinity Centre, Trinity Road, Bristol, BS2 0NW. There is limited pay and display parking at the venue for early arrivals.
What do I need to know to join the circus taster classes?
We will ask you to fill in a disclaimer form at registration. If this identifies any risks please discuss these with your first circus teacher.
Appropriate clothing is important for safety and to protect your skin. What you need to bring depends on which circus skills you have chosen:
Trapeze/Aerial Hoop/Rope/Silks – wear long-sleeved tops and leggings, two pairs are more comfortable, definitely no baggy or tight restricting clothes. Sports bras recommended.
Chinese pole – it is essential to wear jeans, and leggings underneath are strongly advised. And trainers with good grip that can be tied very tightly.
Everything else – clothes you can move freely in, nothing loose or sharp that could catch you or others.
What about safety & security?
We have exclusive use of all our venues during our booked times, and security on the door at all evening events. Bristol is a fairly safe city, but we’d recommend traveling to & from the after-party in groups.
We’re reviewing our safe spaces policies at the moment.
