Becoming an Open Training Member

Criteria

Open Training Membership is primarily intended for professional circus artists, although we will consider applications from recreational circus participants of an advanced level. Applicants must be aged 18 years or over.

Further information can be found in our Admissions Policy, available below.

How to apply

Please complete the Online Application Form.

Any supporting material (such as video files) which you are not able to submit as part of the form should be sent to ot@nationalcircus.org.uk.

Applications usually take 1-2 weeks to be processed, but delays are possible. We will respond to all applicants.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

Membership types

Full Membership
Registration Fee: £50

Guest Membership (1 month)
Registration Fee: £15

The registration fee is a one-off payment made when joining. Both full and guest members then pay per training session – see here for rates.

If you do not attend training for a two-year period, your membership will lapse and you will be required to re-apply and be re-inducted. However, you will not have to pay the registration fee again if you were previously a full member.

Inductions

Once your application has been approved, you will be required to attend an induction at your first training session.
