The RetroFutureVerse which Lucha Britannia inhabits is growing stronger all the time and has reached a point where it's not enough to only put on big shows a few times a year, hence regular smaller shows as well as the mega ones.

Lucha Britannia Co-Producing Bizarre Ball for second year running!

'Bizarre Magazine', the world's no.1 alternative culture mag, again enlists the heroic skills of throwing together a great party from Lucha Britannia!

After last years incredible success of the Bizarre Ball, the gang have dug deep to provide what can only be described as 'the biggest freak party of the year' for 2500 of us freedom fighting party goers!

The underground Resistance subversive fighting and 'Cabaret Sinestro' stylings of 'Lucha Britannia' are yet again an essential part of London's thriving sub-cultural scene and are serving as leaders in underground entertainment, with the mainstream itching to get in on the act!

The creative team behind 'Lucha Britannia' are leading the way, both individually and together with their valiant and uber-creative way of getting things done and providing new and interesting ways to create, promote and run events of all kinds in the UK's capital.
They are currently going all out in production for this years 'Bizarre Ball', promising the seemingly impossible task of topping their last shows and indeed last years ball...But top themselves they do each and every time with the very best entertainment that can be found anywhere in the world at this super creatively rich time.

Former Lucha Britannia Super Star now on WWE's ECW!

Former Lucha Britannia super star, Sheamus 'SOS' O'Shaughnessy is now a force to be reckoned with on WWE's ECW.

The young giant from Ireland was battling his way through the Lucha Britannia team just two short years ago and is now terrorizing the roster of ECW with his monstrous arsenal of moves and power.

Lucha superstar Shiro Yoshida has had first hand experience of the Irish Curse.

"Sheamus is a big, strong, angry man! I was on the receiving end of one of his freak outs at the end of one of my matches against Bradford W Bush. He ran into the ring, pretended to assist me but instead smashed me with his axe, slammed me to the canvas, and choked me unconscious with his weapon. We all thought he was honorable till then...However i hold no ill will and wish him the best of luck, wherever he may compete."

Sheamus is currently a rising star on ECW along side fellow Brit's, Paul Burchill and Katie Lea, and they are now part of the largest wrestling federation in the world.

London's wrestling stars to give seminar on masked Lucha action

From Mexico to North America to Japan stopping briefly in the 80's in England, and now again in the 00's, masked wrestling is the height of underground cool!

Veteran star of 'Lucha Britannia', Shiro Yoshida, is giving a rare talk on the history of the masked wrestling art called 'lucha libre' on the Saturday of the 'Iconography of Mask' festival.

Also speaking will be Resistance Gallery owner & Lucha Britannia creator, Garry Vanderhorne.

Garry will be doubling up with Shiro to provide what will almost certainly be a passionate and insightful look into the world of masked wrestling, it's history, it's future and what it means today.

Also at times throughout the three day of events, Stars of Lucha Britannia will be giving demonstrations and available to chat with, about the dangers, high's and low's of the art of Lucha Libre wrestling.

Wrestling & Sinister Cabaret Lucha Britannia style at Download

Battered, bloody, and bruised, Lucha Britannia are recovering after their 3 night headline takeover of the Download festival.

The thousands of new 'United Resistance Movement' warriors turned out en-mass, to witness and support the Lucha mayhem.

The fans who were fortunate enough to get past the on site, jobs-worth security were treated to a succession of spine tingling performances from Vivid Angel, Crazy White Sean, Pariah Circus, Syban V Manticore, Pretty Pervy and Bunny Bam Bam.
And of course incredible bouts of hard hitting-high flying-hardcore action from Necrosis, Leon Britannico, El Parano, Shiro Yoshida, Estupido, Bradford W Bush, The Bengal Tiger, El Thumpo Bunny, El Foxo Siniestro, El Vis, El Freddie,

The superb Dr.'Des O'Connor' hosted the show as a last minute replacement for Lucha's regular presenter, 'Dr Rupert G Hooper', who was taken away by the State along with Dr Doppleshaftpumpt, for questioning regarding the whereabouts of Lucha Britannia's next secret shows and resistance meetings.
(Fortunately, neither Dr Hooper or Dopple broke under interrogation and the United Resistance Movement's secrets are still safe... for now.)

Dr Des O'Connor did an incredible job of keeping the Lucha Britannia fighting machine running smoothly and we hope we see more of him in the 'RetroFutureVerse'.

Along side Des they had another couple of new additions to the roster;
Firstly as co-commentator and crowd agitator they introduced 'Sergeant Motors', and another new wrestler by the name of 'Baron Von ChessMaster'.
Motors was a fantastic addition, acting as the very antithesis of O'Connor in style and character.
The Baron however, is particularly odd, even by Lucha Britannia standards!
He was recently rescued from 'Bunker 13' and has been very difficult to integrate into the team.
Maybe his conditioning from the State's re-programming is irreversible? Time will tell.

Stay tuned for more 'Silence Breaking' updates and pictures.

Breaking the Silence at SE1 Club & I D scans!

In these draconian like times, even the semi-regular Lucha underground safe-haven of London Bridge's Se1 Club has been compromised by the system!

Yes, Security id scan checks were in operation! This was O.K. for the Lucha Britannia United Resistance Movement regulars who obviously have state of the art deception methods but what does this bode for the future of British clubbing where apparently all night clubs will enforce a 'No photo id, No entry' rule?

The 'Retrofutureverse' is closing in on us but luckily our Lucha warriors, Glamazon Luchadoras, Freaks and Uniques are well prepared with foolish, moral building entertainment and insane fighting skills the like of which, none other can compare!

Find out about wrestling in London with Lucha Britannia!

Lucha Britannia is yet again leading the way in British wrestling by providing more and more mainstream coverage to the fine and noble art.
Look out for coverage on ITV2&3 on Weds 18th Feb at 2009's Brit Awards.

2008 saw Lucha Britannia rise from an small underground subversive troop, into a bigger more elaborate force to be reckoned with, by featuring heavily on the BBC3's highlights of Reading and Leeds Festival where Lucha Britannia not only headlined the 'Alternative Arena' at both events, but also took on Indie darlings, 'British Sea Power' in the guest enclosure backstage.
Edith Bowman and Zane Lowe both said that 'Lucha Britannia was their favorite non-musical highlight of the whole festival'.

Later in the year saw Lucha Britannia team up with the worlds favorite alternative lifestyle magazine, BIZZARE, to create and produce an event of epic magnitude, The Bizarre Ball.

Together Bizarre Mag and Lucha Britannia pulled in the cream of British alternative entertainment from amputee fetish model Vikoria to kick ass rock n roll bands like the Pricillas and Zombina & the Skelletones. Samppa Von Cyborg to Jonny Woo. Vicky Butterfly to Syvan V Manticore. Amazing DJ's like Noko440, Dane, Vern, Miss Vinci, DeeBee & Vodka. Circus of Horrors to Pariah Circus. Top Dominatrixes and rope suspension experts to Glamazon Luchadoras!

They also produced a special issue of the magazine which featured all the acts, performers and partners with a huge eight page pull-out cover.

The Bizarre ball was such a huge success that in 2009 there are ruminations of a double reprise:Even Bigger!Even Better!

The 'URM' is growing stronger by the day with more and more revolutionaries joining the hilarious ongoing battle to rein supreme in the 'going out and having a great night' stakes.

Lucha Britannia says:
"we entertain like our lives depend on it...and they do!"

Break the Silence!!!

Lucha Britannia is masked wrestling in the UK!

Lucha Britannia is masked wrestling in the UK!

After the team at "Lucha Britannia" had successfully finished helping the Mexican stars at "Lucha Libre London's" huge triumphant return, they were seen at the opening night of a fantastic new bar on London's Old St in Shoreditch, called 'South of the Border'.

This is a Mexican themed bar & live band venue with a great vibe, great decor & in a great location.(rumors of drunk Luchadors are greatly exaggerated)

Then, some of our tireless warriors were in a "Secret Wars" graffiti showdown at "Illustrated Ape Magazine's' new issue launch party which led into a wrestling demonstration & then a full blown Lucha Libre contest.
Led by revered graff artists, 'Tek1' & 'Jason Atomic', the larger than life caricatures are still on display at 'Resistance Gallery'.

Last but not least, to see the year out, five of the "lucha Britannia" masked high flying Luchadors appeared at 'Resistance Gallery's' Xmas kinky rock n roll showdown & participated in a parody of the X-Factor.

Shiro Yoshida hosted the competition with Bradford W Bush, Sir Thomas Chamberlain & El Parano as the contestants & the Bengal Tiger, Rajan Singh along with 2 audience members as the judging panel.

Needless to say the singing was terrible, the judging was super bitchy & a massive brawl ensued on the giant bouncy castle.

No one was seriously injured.

Feuds will continue in the new year.

London! Libre! Lucha Britannia!
