Aerial Haven - start up

To provide Edinburgh aerialists with a safe, fun and comfortable place to learn and play.

by Angela Kirkpatrick in Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh, Scotland

We did it
On 14th August 2018 we successfully raised £4,390 with 81 supporters in 28 days

The good news: We have found a new space.

Aerial Haven, named because it's on Newhaven Road will be a dedicated aerial space in Edinburgh. With ceilings over 8 meters high and around 200 meters squared of floor space. Free parking and easy accessible for students. The height and space will allow more classes, different equipment and exciting workshops.

The bad news: It's expensive

My life savings are going into the space but I need some help. There are many expensive things involved with setting up a new space.  We need flooring to help keep the space warm and comfortable. With the extra height we need bigger crash mats. We need a bathroom, where you can't see people doing their business. All these things are to make the space safe and a nice place to be. The big expense is where I need your help. The ceiling structure is not safe for aerial and we need a truss structure to hang from.

Please help make this place as amazing as possible so that our wonderful aerial community can enjoy it. We are kicking off with some clothing to get the ball rolling and an opportunity to be on our supporters wall. More things will be added as we go!
