‘Life was never better on a swing, the higher the better!’

Come and enter our world of The Swings. We love playing and swinging about on our giant swing set and we’d love you to have a go too.

Watch as our aerialists swing, climb, play and perform for you. Then the Swings are open to experience. Your swinging will activate a soundscape full of memories of being on a swing. Feel the rush of air past your face and be inspired by our aerialists with what you can do with a swing!

A 5m high giant swing set, 2 swings, 2 aerialists and a sound installation where you can play, watch, and listen. An interactive event for all the family.


This outdoor event will be held in the space next to Logie Lecture Theatre on the campus of the University of Stirling. Directions can be found on the map below.
