Welcome to the new black&blue website which is still being tweaked and added to but is in good enough shape to get up online at last!! More info and gallery images will be added soon. 

We are an aerial circus theatre company and are working hard to put Liverpool on the international circus map alongside other British cities with a thriving circus scene such as Bristol, Cardiff and Sheffield. Our base in The Black-E is conveniently situated in Liverpool city centre where we are lucky enough to have access to one of the largest and best training and performance spaces in the country.

We run regular adult aerial classes for all abilities in a number of disciplines including static trapeze, silks, aerial hoop and cord-lisse, and will be expanding our program to include other activities in the future. We also run a lively and exciting youth circus as well as circus play sessions for children in partnership with The Black-E. We are very much a part of the British circus community and have strong links with organisations such as Circomedia, NoFit State, Skylight, Greentop and The Circus House.

black&blue have been established for ten years, and artistic director Barry Welsh is one of the few qualified circus teachers in the country, having spent a year of study and training at Circomedia on their dedicated circus teacher training course. 

Click on the links above to find out all about us, and do keep checking back here as our program of classes and events will be updated and added to on a regular basis.

Thanks for visiting, and please contact us if you require any further information.

We would also appreciate any feedback about the website to help make sure we are getting everything right for you!
