DeadDrop: The Bash Dash
Step right up, contestants: if you love immersive city games and hate politicians, this could be your lucky month. The Bash Dash is an interactive 5-10k race which requires you to run around looking for annoying politicians to ‘bash’, which we're guessing is really just giving actors in costume a good bop on the head. Get involved for a medal, a cheeky beer and the satisfaction of letting everyone from Cameron to May have a piece of your mind (all within the limits of the law, of course).
Date: September 10
Cost: £16 (early bird) or £26 plus booking fee
A secret Zone 1 location

Hotpod Yoga are bringing their funky heated inflatable pods to One New Change for 20-minute morning and lunchtime sessions, which could be just the thing for sweating all those to-do list cares away.
Cost: £8 for a 20-minute session or £12 for an hour’s class
Dates: From September 12
