The Arena - Cancelled!

Due of a range of different factors, The Arena is having to be cancelled. The main reason for this decision is due to ticket sales not achieving the required amount to make the event financially viable.



This is not a decision that has been taken lightly and like you, we are very disappointed.

We would like to thank the Gladiators who agreed to appear at the event and thank you to people who bought tickets.



We are overjoyed to announce that Mike Lewis AKA Saracen will be meeting fans at The Arena on the 9th -10th March 2019 at The Holiday Inn, Brentford Lock, London.

Saracen is remembered for being the king of swing with only ever allowing one contender to reach his platform during Hang Tough.

Since leaving Gladiators, Mike became a London Fire Fighter.
