We teach circus arts in Cambridge. Come and learn aerial acrobatics like trapeze, silks, hoop or corde lisse. Take up the unicycle, juggling, diabolo or hula hoop. We meet every Sunday for our main practice and new people are always welcome.

You can stay in touch via our facebook page.


In view of the forecast for low temperatures and travel problems this week we are cancelling the following sessions:

Hi circus monkeys! Did you know we are on social media!?!? Please follow us on Instagram @camcircus and tag us in any public photo using the hashtag #camcircus. With your help, we can show the world what an awesome circus community we are!

CCC home secured for the next five years! Some of you might be wondering what was going on on Sunday evening at 5.00 (aside from the usual shenanigans)... Well....The CCC committee is now in possession of 'The License'....two years' of negotiations with the church (London rather than local) authorities...The License grants St George's a 'change of use' allowing the aerial rig to remain. This license lasts 5 years and can then be renewed. (It's believed that this is a first - we know of no other active church that hosts a permanent circus base - and was quite outside the church authority's experience!). The License was signed on Sunday evening - requiring the local church officials and the whole of the CCC committee to sign - and have their signatures witnessed. It's been quite a long haul - and we should be very grateful to Ruth Adams, vicar of St George's, for her determination to see CCC get a permanent home. She is also determined to address the issues of light and heating - although these will take time (and much money!). CCC committee is relieved and grateful - this is a very significant step in securing our future.

Practice Sessions

We have a number of practice sessions (see above) throughout the week. These sessions are for people to practice skills and rehearse routines. Nothing is formally taught during these sessions though people often meet up and train or skill share together.

General Practice Sessions - Open to all skills and abilities. The space is shared by all users so compromises might need to be made if you require lots of space. 

Juggling & Spinning

If you are a juggler, poi spinner or contact juggler then Sunday nights at 5 are for you. If you have never juggled before or are yet to spin a hoop or catch a diabolo then please come down to our Sunday session, they are always busy and there are always people happy to teach beginners a trick or two. We have plenty of all the basic equipment so if you don't have any of your own don't let it hold you back.

We run occasional courses in specific skills such as poi and staff and one off workshops which get announced via our facebook page and on our website above. 


See above for timetable and announcements. Regular announcements are also made on our Facebook page.

If you are wondering what to wear then ideally, a leotard or long top (e.g. t-shirt) and leggings, or long possibly tight trousers if you don't want to wear leggings.  DO NOT wear jewellery or watches. For silks especially don't wear jeans or anything similar, as they can rip the fabric. We suggest wearing socks and leg warmers for the warm-up and in between practice during the colder months, though no socks while on the silks. 

We have sign off sheets that we require people to have completed before practising in open practice sessions. What these sheets mean is that we think you are safe and competent enough to practise. There is a sign off sheet for each bit of equipment. If you have done aerial before and believe yourself to be competent then please get in contact, camcircaerial@gmail.com, and we can arrange for you to meet up with a member of our aerial staff who can sign you off.

Movement Training

Movement training is a mix of free running and tricking. Classes involve dynamic condition and aim to raise body and spatial awareness through movement (lots of running, rolling and jumping over things). Note: Movement Training is no longer run through CCC. See the movement training facebook page for up to date information.


These classes are open to those who are 16+ and need to be attended in pairs. Classes only run during Term Time and take place in SAFFRON WALDEN. If you haven't been before then you will need to join a beginners class, these take place whenever enough people have shown interest (roughly once a month) so please get in contact via our e-mail address


Our new home is St George's Church, Chesterfield Road (down Fraser Road, off Milton Road), Cambridge CB4 1LN.
