Wrestling night to be staged in Peacehaven

Wrestling is not a spectator sport which you would usually expect to find in Peacehaven, but next year wrestling fans are getting ready to rumble when big-time grappling comes to the Meridian Centre in Peacehaven for the first time.

Top promoters Premier Promotions, whose shows have been running for 25 years, will be presenting a special night of high-flying action, featuring an all-in American Rumble, on February 23.

The big Saturday night event, which is expected to sell out in advance, is being staged in aid of the Mayor of Peacehaven’s local projects funds and will feature star names from the world of wrestling.

The programme will include tag team and solo bouts, with the climax to the evening being the rumble in which the wrestlers can only be eliminated by being thrown out of the ring over the top rope, and the last man standing is the winner.

Tickets for the show are available from the Meridian Centre, priced £10 for adults, £9 for concessions or £36 for a family ticket (two adults and two children).

A town council spokesperson said: “We have already received a good amount of interest and are starting to sell tickets via our Information Office.” For more information call enquiries 01273 575125.
