Last bank holiday weekend I took a trip with Amazon Annie up to Manchester, where we were to visit Pippa’s Wrestling Factory.
No prizes for guessing what the weather was like, but the sun was shining in Pippa’s place of wrestling.
Situated in an old factory industrial estate, The Wrestling Factory walls are lined with photo after photo of wrestlers, and poster after poster of events. It was a history of wrestling. I even spied a young Mystique in a corner!
Well our stay was brief, but I managed to squeeze in some wrestling, including some unique ‘chess wrestling’. I lost the game of chess, but won the rounds of wrestling. So equilibrium was restored.
On the bank holiday Monday I met up with Steve from Deadly Femmes. We had great fun shooting a couple of clips. I’m sure my opponent enjoyed being my victim. If he didn’t, I know he definitely enjoyed lacing up my boots prior to filming.
I must say, Pippa has a real treasure trove of costumes and accessories. This meant I could not visit without trying at least one of them on (ooooer!).
Whilst strolling around the town for food, we stumbled across a fab little Pho restaurant in the Chinatown area. It was so good, we had to take photos!
Here are the snaps randomly taken during my visit:
