"Training the next generation of performers"

Our training is aimed at ages 4 - adult and can include trapeze, aerial hoop and silks, stilt walking, tight wire walking, juggling, plate spinning, acrobatics, poi, staff spinning etc. These are run alongside our completely FREE core exercise programme called Flying-FIT to help strengthen and tone muscles.

The Circus School is the brainchild of businessman Paul Murphy and professional West End performer Chris Gage who among many other shows worked with director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) performing in both the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 Olympic Games.

"I have worked as a professional performer for 16 years and a professional aerialist for 12 years. I have seen many changes in the industry over this time and skills such as aerial are required more and more by producers of tv, film and stage shows. Being able to sing, dance and act just isn't enough in the world of performing now. You need the extra skills such as trapeze and acrobatics to help you get through that all important audition and get a foothold in the entertainment industry today. I am passionate about the skills and the training we can offer, but it's what people can achieve if they work at perfecting them that is the most exciting part." - Chris Gage
