Lucha Britannia: One Month On

  • May 16, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

While we're still going through our photos from the last Lucha Britannia - think theatrical Mexican cabaret wrestling - let's pencil in the next one, where the Bengal Tiger's title will be challenged, by any number of supernatural wrestlers. So to speak.


Lucha Britannia describes itself as "Imagine Cirque Du Soleil meets Monty Python with Muscles, Lycra, Fighting & Zombies!

"It's not a wrestling show, it's a 'Cabaret Siniestro', a no holds barred, high octane, comedy, RetroFutureVerse blast of hyper reality!

"Lucha Britannia brings to you the daredevil thrills of an Orwellian circus gone awry with super OTT characters, comedy, horror & Neo Burlesque. It's the closest thing you can get to real life superheroes, literally leaping into your lap!

"It is the most popular, successful, award winning, underground, Lucha Libre, Cabaret Siniestro Show anywhere in the world & were only just getting started, so get in while you still can & be part of the insane action! "


As I can't be there this time, I've amended the details so that you can go straight to the gallery rather than meet beforehand at a nearby pub (unless you want to). 

To find the gallery, if you are walking up Cambridge Heath Road from Bethnal Green station, turn left down the alleyway at The Dundee Arms, then turn right at the end. The venue is on the right-hand side; there's a blue door with "265" above it. Please try to get there by 7.30pm to get a good spot, as it fills up very quickly! The best spot is the corner furthest from the door - against the wall, by the sofa (it's the corner all our photos have been taken from). The perspective from upstairs is a bit weird, so we don't go there.

Tickets are available on the door (£20) - if there are any left - or available online (£16.50 inc fee) closer to the time.

And I'll have to get us some masks at some point!

    The show/match has now sold out, so I'm closing this to RSVPs, just in case anyone else decides to go at the last minute.

    As I can't be there on Friday, I've updated the event details and description so that you can go there directly; I've tried to give directions on how to find the place, and where the best place is to be inside. And once you're in there, aim for wide shots, high ISO, high shutter speed - and having a great time!

    Bit confused, is this an opportunity to meet people or take pictures?

      This is a photography group - this is an event for taking photos with other people :) Do read the event (and group) description and look at the photos from our previous visits to Lucha Britannia.

    A little confused, Chantal. Are we having to buy tickets for this one?
