Hangar Arts Trust (HAT) uses the magic of circus to rejuvenate peoples lives. We make circus training and artistic expression available for all ages and all abilities; we use it to help people grow in self esteem, improve fitness, increase quality of life, develop soft skills, learn professional skills, and gain access to exciting meaningful work.

We work with our local community to offer them exciting opportunities for personal development and we work with local schools to help them provide a rounded education for their children. We mentor young people to help them work towards a career in the performing arts and we use the learning methodology of a performance to teach enterprise, marketing, sales, catering standards, crowd management, Health & Safety, rigging, and basic First Aid.

We make learning and getting fit extremely good fun and practically rewarding. HAT is a place where people are both challenged and cherished – it is about ordinary people helping each other to do extraordinary things.
