Now more than ever. We need superheroes…

In its triumphant debut at the Roundhouse this summer Lucha Libre fought for the heart and soul of London – and won hands down. Now we’re back for the rematch – four days of spectacular high-flying, jaw-dropping, ring-grappling, mask-wearing Mexican entertainment that is guaranteed to rock your world this December.

It’s an early festive Luchadrome, featuring the legendary gladiator El Hijo del Santo, whose tecnico side includes the mighty but minimal Mascarita Sagrada as they face the evil side of the rudos, whose leader Blue Demon Jr is joined by the lonesome and nasty Hijo del Solitario and Mascarita Dorada the mini-troll from Jack Black’s Nacho Libre.

Lucha Libre London also brings back London’s favourite lip-locking, transvestite wrestler Cassandro and this time he’s bringing a new ‘exotico’ to the party – La chiquilla ‘Ruby Gardenia’ – for double the cross-dressing action.

The luchadores line-up also includes: the sun god Solar, high flyers Mystyco de Juarez and Magno, the singing mariachi ‘Corazon de Barrio’, the prince of darkness Silver King, the giant Athor and the minis Octagoncito and Pequeño Pierrot.

The whole spectacle is hosted by MC Gregorio ‘El Caballero Ingles’ and DJ Toy Selectah of the Mexican super group Control Machete. 

Is it wrestling? Is it theatre? Is it the best early Christmas present ever?

Without further ado ladies and gentleman… ready your eyes for they will pop, loosen your jaws for they will drop, get down on your knees and pray for it never to stop… Ladies and gentleman… we present LUUUUCHAAAA LIIIIBREEEE LOOOOONDOOOOON!!!!!
