After reading Time Out’s opinion about Lucha Britannia(below), I decided to look deeper into this event.
“Just when London’s fans of freak-show entertainment thought they had seen it all, Bethnal Green opened its doors to the violent hilarity of Mexican wrestling. Pack a b stomach and your best gimp mask; you’re going to need it. It doesn’t get much better than this. Mexican, British and Japanese wrestlers will be covering thiselves in Deep Heat and causing muchos pain, while burlesque starlets, gimps chomping at the bit and strange theatrical encounters make for one of the very best nights in town.”
So what Lucha Britannia is about? I am quoting the invitation they’ve just sent me, it all sounds very tempting:
