When will the timetable be released?
We release the full timetable for EAAC about a month before the event so you can start planning what classes you want to participate in. To get an idea of the general structure of the event you can still view last year's timetable on the timetable page of the website.
How do I book onto classes?
You need to buy a ticket to be able to book on to classes at EAAC. We release the full timetable for EAAC about a month before the event so you can start planning what classes you want to participate in. To get an idea of the general structure of the event you can still view last year's timetable on the timetable page of the website. Once the booking system goes live, ticketholders can login to the booking system and create their schedule for the weekend. This can either be done on the desktop browser or EAAC mobile app. 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. If you have bought a ticket to EAAC 2017, we'll notify you by email (the one you used to book your ticket with) a few days before classes become available for booking (around the end of August/ beginning of September).
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.
What is a rare class?
A 'rare class' is a discipline which is high in demand but limited in supply so we only allow you to try these once during the convention. This year's rare disciplines only include Bungee Trapeze at the moment, but we are working on securing some other very exciting disciplines that may also be limited to 1 per customer. In previous years we've had disciplines such as Static Cloud, Teeterboard and Cyr Wheel included in our rare disciplines, but this year we've opened them up to be non-rare.
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 let us know their name and email address so we can transfer the ticket to them.
I have an Acro Pass, can I attend just one Aerial class?
Sorry, no. Many people ask us this each year and there are no exceptions to this rule. If you want to try disciplines not included in the Acro Pass (such as Chinese Pole, Trapeze and Cyr Wheel), you must buy a full pass. 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!
I can't make it for the whole weekend, can I get a discount on my ticket?
Sorry, no. We only offer two ticket options for EAAC: The Acro Pass and Full Pass. If you want to try disciplines such as Chinese Pole, Trapeze and Cyr Wheel, you must buy a full pass no matter how many days you will be attending. 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!
Is food and accommodation included?
EAAC Tickets do not include any food or accommodation. Our friends at Central Edinburgh Hotels have a special offer for EAAC ticket holders of 15% off your booking and a bottle of Prosecco on arrival. Ticket holders will receive a promotional code in their purchase confirmation email for the event.
Is photography/ filming allowed?
We have official EAAC photographers and videographers who will be documenting the highlights of the weekend. You are permitted to take photos and film during the event, but please check that it's ok with the instructor of you class (and anyone who you may be filming) before doing so. Not every instructor wants to be filmed while teaching, so it's polite to ask first.
I don't have a ticket, can I come and watch?
Sorry, only EAAC 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?
Sorry, no. Tickets to EAAC 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!
My login from last year 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.
Can I bring my child to EAAC?
Sorry no, EAAC is an event for over 16's only.
