“Kidnap the Sandy Claws, beat him with a stick. Lock him up for fifty years, see what makes him tick!”.

Our daytime feature show is inspired by Tim Burton’s ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’. This is the product of an 8 week act creation process supervised by AirCraft Circus Director and Choreographer Lucy Francis, in collaboration with Temple Cloud Circus from Bristol.

- ALUMNI-ATI CABARET - 7.30pm

We have had the privilege of having hundreds of circus artists study with us on a full-time basis.  Our students have gone on to glittering professional careers or to continue their studies at some of the most prestigious circus institutions in the world.  We have invited a star line-up back to the Hangar Arts Trust this December to astound and entertain.  

 

- AirCraft Circus presents ... THE LAST SUPPER - 9pm

A sombre note?  Maybe NOT, but definitely celebrating the end of an era.  Watch as the AirCraft Circus professionals perform their finest acts in tribute to the 10 years of the Hangar Arts Trust.

We also have a licensed bar open until midnight with pumping music and dancing 'til the end.  Pop on down and treat yourself, it's Christmas!
