  • British Wrestling: history and resurgence

  • Sunday 19 November, 6pm
  • FREE. 2 hours
  • (Part of Being Human Festival)
  • 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 charts the fall and rise of British Wrestling through a collection of artistic encounters – a training workshop, a discussion event, and, on Sunday, two wrestling matches, with responses from artists, scholars and fans.
