Rob da Bank commented that: “Yes, amigos, it’s happening! The world famous Mexican wrestling, striptease and burlesque whirlwind that is Lucha VaVoom is coming to the Isle of Wight this September. I saw this show in America last year and knew we had to get ‘em on the ferry, masks, mankinis and glitter and all… Seriously this is one madcap show and we’re proud to be showing it across the weekend at the same time every day in the Big Top. Arriba!”
