Circus Hub is a new aerial, physical theatre and yoga studio based in the heart of Nottingham's creative quarter. At Circus Hub we are passionate about making circus accessible for all. 

Ria Ashcroft and Kay Monrose are the brains and brawn behind this new creative business venture. They have been training in aerial and acrobalance together for over three years, and have vast history in performing and training aerial acrobatics. 

 Kay Monrose, co-founder of Circus Hub, said: “At Circus Hub we are interested in all things physical, healthy, creative and fun. If you’d like to have a go at trapeze, aerial hoop, rope, silks, acrobatics, acrobalance, stretch conditioning, strength conditioning and circus skills then come along to our launch and find out about our classes. We will be running a whole programme of classes and training options for all levels of ability and ages, both adults and children.”

Ria Ashcroft, co-founder of Circus Hub, said:“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.”
