One of the most exciting events will be the wrestling which is always popular with IGPW Champion Levi, The Young Lioness Angel Hayze and Scotland’s top tag team Arcade Violence being involved. As well as the live show there’ll be live training demonstrations as well as some exhibition matches throughout the day at Alexandra Park which will be rounded off by an over the top rope elimination match - “The Ally Park Rumble”.

Artistic Director for Platform, Matt Addicott said: “We’re excited about both festivals and bringing entertaining and interactive days out to families and everyone in the area - and beyond!

“Both festivals will have performances, dancing, rides for children, art activities for everyone and loads of community groups and organisations will be hosting stalls too. We’ll also have face painting, balloon modelling, sports activities and food and drinks to get stuck into – fun for all the family. We can’t wait!”.
