Following 60+ responses from an open call for wrestling mash-ups, Wrestival is bringing you four new pieces of work made in fruitful collaborations with dancers, mimes, clowns & drag stars. We have no idea what to expect but we know it’ll be brilliant!

Expect wrestling mixed with a scratch show, Leigh Bowery and dance.

Perfect for: performance art and clown enthusiasts.

SHOW 2 - Fist Club AT 9PM

A special Friday night treat - the UKs leading queer drag wrestling cult are bringing you a night of drama, DDTs and drag.

The first rule of Fist Club is everyone looks amazing in spandex! Join the heroes and villains of London’s premier injection of joy based violence as we dazzle you with four matches, wonderful hosts, ring babes and spellbinding drag acts all in just ninety minutes.

Expect wrestling mixed with a drag panto, Stars in Your Eyes and a 80s strip club!
