THE LEIGH ARMS 'LAY THE SMACKDOWN' ON MENINGITIS

Northwich pub, The Leigh Arms and First Class Wrestling are getting prepared to ‘Lay the SmackDown’ on Meningitis with the return of their free wrestling event on Saturday 10th June, 2017.

For the 7th year running, First Class Wrestling, a wrestling promotion based out of the North-East, will return to the Robinsons pub; the only pub in the country to host live pro-wrestling for FREE.

The free event will add to the £10,000 already raised for Meningitis Now, a charity that rebuilds lives and funds lifesaving research for people affected by Meningitis.

Joanne Higham, Licensee of The Leigh Arms, said: “Over the past 5 years we’ve raised a phenomenal £10,000 and seen over 2,000 people come to the event. The show is great fun for the whole family and extremely popular. It’s an event that we all look forward to hosting every year as it really brings everyone together for a great cause.”

We have an amazing line up of pro wrestlers this year, including WWE UK stars; James Drake and Sam Gradwell. Super heavyweights Colosus and Henchmen are also making a welcome return to the Leigh Arms, as well as fans favourite; Tony Spitfire. Former British and European Champion James Mason, Franky Sloan, and Ringo Ryan will also be making an arrival. The master of ceremonies for the show will be, from the original world of sport wrestling show and BBC radio 2 traffic voice; Lee Bamba. All wrestlers will waver their fees for the day in aid of Meningitis Now.

The bone crunching action starts at 2pm Saturday 10th June. After the event, there will be a unique opportunity to meet the wrestlers in person, followed by live music from 6pm by an exciting local band.

The Leigh Arms will be serving award-winning Robinsons cask ale throughout the day, along with American style food and its usual delicious menu.

The event is free and held at the Leigh Arms, Warrington Road, Little Leigh, Northwich, Cheshire, CW8 4QT.
