Quirky Event of the Week – World Gravy Wrestling Championships

If you’re in Britain today and like food festivals and wrestling, the Pennine Lancashire Festival of Food & Culture might be the perfect place for you.

Since the festival started 5 years ago, the Pennine Lancashire Festival of Food & Culture has become one of Britain’s most popular food festivals with over 50,000 visitors. The festival offers gourmet food from all over the world. At the festival people can try pony trekking picnics, culinary canal cruises, champagne balloon flights, ale trails, see local singers, comedians, traditional Lancashire dancers and and watch the Knights of the kitchen Charity Cricket Match. But that’s not all. The festival is also home to the World Gravy Wrestling Championships where people dress up in funny clothing and wrestle each other of a pool filled with Lancashire Gravy. This year’s dress code is ‘Fancy’ and ‘Entertaining’ and Everyone can apply on a first come first served basis.

Tickets £2.00 for adults and £1.00 for children (£6 for family of 4) and can be bought at the entrance. So if you don’t have anything better to do today, head down to the Rose N Bowl in Rossendale, Lancashire for a full day of family fun. Click here to find the place on a map. But hurry, the games begin at 12 noon!
