We offer weekly introduction classes in a variety of circus disciplines and are the perfect opportunity to try out a circus discipline before committing to a full term. From aerial arts to handstands or equally just a once off fun class to try out something new like juggling or hula hoop, this could be the start of a hobby for life!
Our introduction classes are suitable for complete beginners of all ages (18+) and abilities, no experience necessary. Each individual class will provide detailed descriptions of what the class programme will cover and any particular clothing items you might need with you.
The duration of the class can depend on the discipline offered but can range from 1.5 hours to 2 hours.
Due to government restrictions and covid protocols for close work indoors we have been unable to offer introduction classes for complete beginners in the past year. We hope to resume this programme in October 2021 when restrictions ease further for indoor activities. Please check back at our programme closer to this date.
Our instructors will vary depending on the discipline offered. Please check the individual class description for the instructor profile.

The circus factory is such a fantastic place with amazing tutors. There is never any pressure to go higher or do anything I'm uncomfortable with but I still always find myself pushing my boundaries from the support and enthusiasm of Brenda and the students. Couldn't ask for a better environment to see what I'm capable of or better people to share a passion with.

“Brilliant venue. great for learning circus skills with lovely teachers”
The Circus factory is like a big playground where creative people play and work with each other and learn from one another. Exploring new movements is one of the most beautiful ways to entertain your inner child.
The equipment in CF is always improved/ updated and above all when it comes to aerial rigging/equipment it's regulated & safe. Knowing you can train on apparatus that is rigged well and checked regularly means a lot”
