This Sunday's Summer Wrestling Spectacular Brings A New Main-Eventer To Brighton Centre

Wrestling fans are getting ready to rumble at the weekend when the Brighton Centre stages its first summer grappling spectacular for 16 years.
Robbie Brookside In Action

And top UK matchmakers Premier Promotions, whose previous shows have drawn packed houses during the winter months, are pulling out all the stops after scheduled main-eventers The UK Pitbulls were forced to pull out of Sunday's (July 13) star-spangled afternoon bonanza.

They have added Britain's biggest crowd-puller, Liverpool Lad and TV wrestling star Robbie Brookside, to the line-up, plus Viking Warrior Crazy Horse, thrown in a six-man survivor tag team clash, and the climax to the programme will now be an all-in, last-man-standing American Rumble to crown the King of the Ring.

Among the other stars in action will be heavyweight champion Martin Stone and his manager, "The Twisted Genius" Dean Ayass, "Wonder Kid" Jonny Storm, Black Country giant Dave Moralaz, the Young Wrestler of the Year Joel Redman and Brighton's own Barry Cooper, the reigning PWF welterweight champion.

The Pitbulls have been hit by a serious injury to Dave Waters, one half of the tag team goliaths and have cancelled all their wrestling engagements after he shattered his knee while competing in a strong man event last weekend.


Sunday's show starts at 3pm. For tickets contact the box office on 0844 847 1515 or book on-line at www.brightoncentre.co.uk

Jon Ronson by Emli Bendixen

It's not been an easy ride to 'stardom' for comedian Simon Day. Only the stability of marriage and the birth of a child saved him from the worst addiction-fuelled ends.

“I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever. To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin's sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead's version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.” 

REM frontman Michael Stipe has reflected that the band's seminal album, Automatic For The People, concerns topics of “mortality and dying,” but he further notes, “mortality is a theme that writers have chosen to work with throughout time." 

To mark 150 years as a performance venue, Brighton Dome is seeking memories from across its rich history. Submissions will help inform new heritage displays which will go on show when the refurbished buildings re-open in late 2018.

Denai Moore was in Brighton earlier this year for full-band shows at The Great Escape festival. Now she's coming back in the city with new album We Used To Bloom, which she calls 'a declaration of growth, a break-up letter to her demons and a love letter to the liberated self'.  

Hallelujah!  Your saviour is at hand. If you're concerned about a life with global advertising, multinational control, climate change, the threat of nuclear war, supermarket domination, and all the constant controversy caused by the US President's outpourings, this is for you. 

Filmed over a one year period at East Mountbatten Hospice, Isle of Wight, this new multi-screen video work - on show at  Fabrica, Brighton, next month - addresses the taboo subject of dying and current attitudes to palliative care.

Brix & The Extricated has – in the words of an old Fall lyric – something of a “track record”.
