Circus Hub opened August 2016 by Ria Ashcroft and Kay Monrose. We are a creation and training studio in the heart of Nottingham. At Circus Hub we are interested in all things physical, healthy, creative and fun. We offer classes for adults and children aged 7plus in Aerial Silks, Hoop and Trapeze from complete beginner to advanced.
We have been training aerial for many years now and have a wealth of knowledge and experience collected along the way!
“Our space in the creative quarter at Sneinton Market Avenues is the perfect space for us to train and teach others these amazing skills. We hope that people will come along and have a go. It is hard work and being up high can be scary but you feel an amazing sense of empowerment and achievement when you do something that you never thought you’d be able to do. It’s all down to technique and perseverance. Anyone can do it, that’s the beauty of it.” Ria Ashcroft.
