Summer Starts Here! Worthing Wrestling Spectaculars Feature Cream Of Grappling Crop

Some of the biggest names in the grappling game will be in action during the summer season of Wrestling Spectaculars at the Worthing Assembly Hall.
Doug Williams Makes Rare UK Appearance

The six-week run of Thursday night shows kicks off on July 31 with an increasingly rare British appearance by the reigning PWF heavyweight champion Doug Williams.

Williams, who already spends six months of the year in Japan, has just signed a deal to wrestle for top American federation TNA, making him one of wrestling's biggest global stars.

The five-times Wrestler of the Year now has only two Worthing dates this year, one of them on the opening night of the season on July 31.

The line-up for the summer features the Worthing Trophy knockout tournament, the Rumblemania Trophy and a new event showcasing British wrestling's best young talent.

Among the big names battling it out for the blue riband event will be the European Inter-Continental heavyweight champion from Germany, Christian Eckstein, British title-holder Martin Stone, top Irish star Eamonn O'Neill, former world cup contender Kerry Cabrero, power-packed local star James Tighe and the Young Wrestler of the Year Joel Redman.

Other top stars who will be appearing during the season include the "Wonder Kid" Jonny Storm, Spanish star The Bull and ring legend Johnny Kidd.

The shows run every week until September 4, and among the feature bouts will be a clash between Martin Stone and Brighton's Barry Cooper.

Stone's manager, Dean Ayass, the man known as "The Twisted Genius," is also from Brighton and issued a challenge to Cooper at the recent
Brighton Centre show.

The showdown between Stone and Cooper, with Ayass no doubt getting involved, is set for August 7.


The action every week starts at 7.45. To book tickets, including special reserved ringside seats, contact the box office on 01903 206206 or you can book on line at worthingtheatres.co.uk

Something protean is stirring inside Brighton Little Theatre's jewel-box of a theatre…

In Mexico Morrissey has always been more than just a musician. His songs of love, loss and longing, with powerful imagery and metaphors have found a huge audience and chimed with generations raised on rancheras and mariachis and their singers who were not afraid to cross the line.

Dave Wakeling – the  songwriter  and  lead-singer  of  The  Beat - returns to Brighton this September where he will be showcasing new material due for release in 2017. 

English post-punk/hip hop duo Sleaford Mods will be in Brighton later this year in support of their third album, Key Markets. 

The final countdown has begun. With a few weeks to go until Together The People returns to Preston Park, let's take a look at the wide range of entertainment the festival has to offer.

Feature film One More Time With Feeling will screen in cinemas for one night only on 8th September, launching the new Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds album Skeleton Tree.

Brian Wilson will be joined by former Beach Boys band mate Al Jardine and their band at this summer's Together The People Festival in Brighton to perform a UK Festival Exclusive of the classic album Pet Sounds in full. 

Stewart Lee has, over the last five years, set his sights on unravelling the mysteries of modern Britain via a series of irregular newspaper columns.

It's the ultimate rock 'n' roll road trip. In 2016, on the 90th anniversary of the opening of America's 'Mother Road', Brightonians Suzanne Rolfe and Melita Dennett spent five weeks travelling the dirt roads and gravel byways of Route 66.


Hazel Rochez's mother, Thelma Jenkinson, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in  2001 and died in 2003. 

Tucked away amongst the wild hillside pines of North Wales, sits an old weather beaten, rust eaten showman's wagon, gently swaying and creaking with the warm, low hum of sweet dreams and two four blues. 

Six years used to be a lifetime in rock 'n' roll. Kids driven by the urgency of youth form bonds, plug in, play gigs, find a label. acclaim, exhaustion, over and out. 

After two years spent on the road, self managed and unsigned playing shows across the country and winning fans in all corners, this year saw the release of Swim, Fickle Friendsfirst official single after signing to Polydor.
