Live British wrestling: history and resurgence

19 November, 2017, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In 1988, after its cancellation on ITV, it seemed that British wrestling had died. Recently, however, there has begun an unlikely resurgence. British wrestling now leads the world; shows sell out in minutes, local athletes are admired worldwide. This Being Human event is a celebration of British professional wrestling; a chance to watch some wrestling and then talk about gimmicks, chair shots, and top rope flips. Whether you have been a fan for forty years or don’t know your hurricanrana from your cobra clutch, you are welcome to come along. Spandex optional!
