About The Aerial Edge Circus Convention

The Aerial Edge Circus Convention, running August 30th to September 1st, is an event that brings together the circus community from far and wide. With a huge variety of workshops run by world-class performers and instructors, this convention is one the UK’s largest events of its kind: a non-stop weekend of circus training for everyone from beginner to professional level.

This convention is a great opportunity to try out new skills that you may never before had the chance to whether that’s Flying Trapeze, Parkour, Icarian Game, Cyr Wheel and more!

Convention FAQ’s

When will the timetable be released?

When will the timetable be released?

We try to release the full timetable for the Aerial Edge Circus Convention about a month before the event so you can start planning what classes you want to participate in.

How do I book onto classes?

How do I book onto classes?

You need to buy a ticket to be able to book on to classes at the Convention. We release the full timetable about a month before the event so you can start planning what classes you want to participate in.

Once the booking system goes live, ticketholders can login to the MINDBODY booking system and create their schedule for the weekend. This can either be done on the desktop browser or the Aerial Edge Convention mobile app. Classes will go quickly, we recommend booking at close to the booking system as possible. All classes are first come first served.

To avoid disappointment, we recommend logging in to the system ahead of time to check that your username and password are correct as our reception team will be dealing with a high volume of calls and emails on the day that classes are released for booking.

Which level of class should I attend?

Which level of class should I attend?

Class levels will be shown on the timetable when it is published. All individual workshop descriptions provided by instructors will be shown within the booking system when it goes live. These descriptions may include pre-requisites so you can use the timetable as a guide for levels but please check class descriptions for pre-requisites before booking onto a workshop.

I can no longer attend, can I get a refund?

I can no longer attend, can I get a refund?

As a not-for-profit event we don’t offer any ticket refunds but we can transfer your ticket to another customer. If you find yourself in this position we recommend using facebook groups such as Aerial Scotland or UK Circus to sell your ticket privately. Once you’ve found someone who has paid you for your ticket, get in touch and we can transfer the ticket.

I can't make it for the whole weekend, can I get a discount on my ticket?

I can't make it for the whole weekend, can I get a discount on my ticket?

Sorry, no. We only offer a full-priced ticket for the Aerial Edge Circus Convention. With our Earlybird ticket prices you can save up to £100 off the cost of a full pass if you book before July 31st, so don’t miss your opportunity to take advantage of this amazing offer!

Why does my ticket include a rare class?

Why does my ticket include a rare class?

Whilst your purchased ticket will give you access to book into all classes over the three-day event there is one class that we are limiting to one per ticketholder. Swinging Trapeze is considered a ‘rare class’ as only one student can partake in a class at a time. Spaces are extremely limited and not everyone will get a space. As such we have made it so students will only be able to book into the class once over the weekend (this will hopefully allow as many people as possible to experience this awesome discipline!).

Is food and accommodation included?

Is food and accommodation included?

This ticket does not include any food or accommodation. There is an onsite cafe at Kelvin Hall where you can buy food and drink.

Is photography / filming allowed?

Is photography / filming allowed?

We have official convention photographers and videographers who will be documenting the highlights of the weekend. We’re more than happy for students to take photos and film during the event, but please check that it’s ok with the instructor of your class (and anyone who you may be filming) before doing so. Not everyone wants to be filmed/photographed, so it’s polite to ask first!

I don't have a ticket, can I come watch?

I don't have a ticket, can I come watch?

Sorry, only Ticket holders are permitted to attend the event. This also applies to family members/ friends of ticket holders.

Can I share my ticket with a friend?

Can I share my ticket with a friend?

Sorry, no. Tickets to the Aerial Edge Convention are strictly one per customer. With our Earlybird ticket prices you can save up to £100 off the cost of a pass if you book before July 31st, so if you want to save money on a ticket then don’t miss your opportunity to take advantage of this amazing offer!

Can I buy myself and a friend a ticket on the same account?

Can I buy myself and a friend a ticket on the same account?

Unfortunatley not! The way our booking system (MindBody) works wouldn’t allow two tickets to be on the same account. Each ticket holder must have their own unique Mindbody account which they can create following this link to the login screen here. Make sure you check your emails as this is where your ticket and all information about it will be sent to!

My login from last year (2018) isn't working?

My login from last year (2018) isn't working?

Unfortunately we don’t keep any login data from previous conventions so you’ll need to create a new login to buy a ticket.

I am a regular Aerial Edge student, can I use my normal class login?

I am a regular Aerial Edge student, can I use my normal class login?

Yes! You don’t need to create a new account if you already have one that you use to book yourself into our regular classes.

Can I bring my child to the convention?

Can I bring my child to the convention?

Sorry no, this is an event for 16’s and over only! We cannot spare any staff to supervise children when unattended.
