The best wrestling action in the UK comes to Clacton on Thursday, 3 June, as the superstars of LDN Wrestling are set to rumble through the Princes Theatre as part of their 2021 nationwide tour.

Featuring some of the country's top grapplers, including LDN British Champion Alan Lee Travis and the mysterious Dark Lord, a spectacular night of high-impact action is guaranteed at the event which is back by popular demand.

Celebrating its 18th anniversary this year, the LDN promotion has become synonymous with top quality live events, perfectly blending the glitz and glamour of American sports entertainment with traditional British wrestling to create a modern approach to wrestling that is always a great night out for people of all ages – from children to grandparents, LDN shows have something for everyone.

This is the first national touring show to return to the Princes Theatre after the breakout of Covid-19, while the theatre hosted earlier this month a Princes Youth Theatre production of DNA – which proved so popular it sold out and had a fourth show added. 

The wrestling show will see LDN British Champion Alan Lee Travis defend his title against New Zealand superstar JK Mooody in the main event. Travis commented: “It’s great to bring British wrestling back to the area, I visited earlier this month and what a great British town it is. Can’t wait for LDN to rock.”

Dark Lord, the self-professed sadistic, violent man of mystery, is considerably less humble. "I've wrestled all around the world and came to LDN because I've heard this is where the real competition is," the masked maniac claimed.

"Forget about beating me; there's nobody who can even last five minutes in the ring with me and it's going to be no different in Clacton. If my opponent has any brains, they won't even turn up...”

The event will also feature thrilling, hard-hitting bouts including high-flying Sid Manelli, the Hooligan Roy Knight and so much more.

Alex Porter, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism at Tendring District Council – which runs the Princes Theatre – said the event was a firm favourite with theatre-goers.

“LDN Wrestling is always a crowd-pleaser, and we’re excited to have them back for another rumble in the Princes Theatre,” Councillor Porter added.
