Gorilla Circus has just opened its first site in Regent’s Park. A new offshoot of London Zoo’s great ape collection, perhaps? Not at all – it’s an open-air trapeze school that anyone can join, so whether you’re looking for a new workout, or fancy some fresh air and a good view, their instructors are ready to send you hurtling through the air with confidence. They’ve previously featured in music videos and, brilliantly, as a heavy-handed metaphor in that ‘Sex and the City’ episode where Carrie Bradshaw had to ‘let go of her inhibitions.’ Classes run for two hours and cost £23.50, and intermediate classes are by invitation only so get booking – you’d be Cirque du So-lame to miss out.
