What is it?
The annual World Gravy Wrestling Championships are a sporting competition with a difference as contestants wrestle for two minutes in a pool full of Lancashire gravy! The competition is scored by audience applause and various different moves.
Contestants are encouraged to wear fancy dress, with a prize for the best outfit. On the day there will be 16 male and 8 female participants competing in same-sex bouts. The lucky winners of the final will have their name engraved on the ‘Gravy Wrestling World Championship Trophy’ which they get to keep for a year.
The event aims to raise much-needed funds for East Lancashire Hospice, so why not head along and watch this wacky wrestling competition?
