International Chessboxing: The Wild Bulls
A sporting hybrid unlike any you’ve ever seen
It started out as a joke in an Amsterdam art gallery in 2003, but has since flourished into a fully-fledged sporting event. A simple concept really – play four minutes of chess, followed by two minutes of boxing. The one who reigns victorious does so either by knockout or checkmate. Get ready for a battle between London’s Richard Fraser and Mike "The Bedfordshire Bull" Botteley plus a host of other heavyweight matches. And don’t forget about the legendary after-party DJs and special guest cabaret. It’s a jam-packed night with a punch (pun very much intended). Pro tip: support your favourite chessboxer with a banner, or come in fancy dress for some cheeky free drinks. General admission. Over 18s only.
