WRESTIVAL DAY 1 - THE COMEDIANS ARE TAKING OVER THE RING

Join a cast of phenomenal performers for two back-to-back shows bringing you wrestling fandom in new & wonderful ways.

SHOW 1 - LETHAL LOTTERY AT 7PM

We open WRESTIVAL with a show completely new for us - you, the audience, decide the matches!

A selection of wrestlers, hand picked by their trainer Mike Bird from legendary training school, Catch 22, will be at your disposal to be chosen to go head to head in four one fall matches.

Helping to navigate the chaos, you’ll be joined by comedian and wrestling super fan Sikisa (Live at the Apollo, The Soho) as she records a special version of her top rated podcast, Wrestle Club, with two co-hosts.

You call the shots - watch majestic mayhem unfold!
Expect wrestling mixed with bingo, Task Masters and a very proud father figure.
Perfect for: comedy and wrestling fans!


SHOW 2 - The Headdrop presents the Jerry Bakewell Variety Show AT 9PM

Returning by demand of the entire staff of the Pleasance theatre, and their Nans, it’s Yorkshire’s Premier Luchador, Jerry Bakewell.

Europe's heaviest light entertainer, Jerry Bakewell (as seen on Britain's Got Talent), will play host to an all new show featuring some of the top talents from the worlds of pro wrestling, burlesque and comedy. A smash hit at the last Wrestival, Jerry returns with even more mayhem than before, including the next chapter in the iconic rivalry between Amira and Cassius!

Curated by Rob Brazier, a queer photographer with too many years of experience of working in the UK wrestling scene.

Expect wrestling mixed with a funfair, old Soho and Noel's House Party

Perfect for: Cabaret regulars, wrestling enthusiasts and comedy lovers
