Everyone’s dreamed of running away to join the circus, but now you can make it a reality – minus the clown makeup.
Gorilla Circus Flying Trapeze School has daily trapeze classes where you’ll learn all kinds of nifty tricks you can impress your friends with after a few beers on a night out.
For beginners or the less ambitious, book on to a “Try ‘n’ Fly” taster class during which you’ll get the chance to do one quick flight through the air.
Or for something you can get your teeth into, take a full two-hour class that begins with a warm up, includes moves on a low bar, and then the finale is a trick on the Flying Trapeze.
By the end of the class, they will have you flying through the air to be caught by a team member on a separate bar. Well, that’s the plan, anyway.
Open until September and located in Regent’s and Battersea parks, taster classes are free, a two-hour class is £23.50, or if you’re going high-wire at the sound of this, you can do a four-week programme for £70.50. Get it booked in advance.
