Hang from a great height, feel the wind in your hair and dare to do something terrifying this summer.

The Gorilla Circus, a company of professional trapeze and tightrope performers, is coming to Battersea Park.

Wandsworth Guardian:

Anyone can learn to fly in one of their two-hour classes. Students are shown how to warm up and then practice a simple trick on a low bar. 

Wandsworth Guardian:

By the end of the class you will be able to get caught by an instructor on a separate swinging bar.

The company runs a mixture of drop-in classes and courses.

Gorilla Circus; Battersea Park, behind Millennium Arena; August 12 - September 7; 9am - 9pm; £24 to £27; gorillacircus.com/flyingtrapezeschool/
