If you recall last week I was talking about my financial gamble to put on a free show on June 28th.
This week I am toasting my success as it was great! In comparison the Caribbean Carnival an annual event I remember as far back as being a young child pulled in around 2000 people so I am told. Preston City Wrestling had 4000! I know as a fact that we had fans come from France, Scotland, London and many other places all over the UK so the day was also a boost to the Preston economy.
We were not the only part of the day with Armed Forces Day Preston hosting a variety of events and numbers throughout the day could be as high as 12,000 people passing through. It was a great day and Councillor Drew Gale the lead organizer on the day deserves a pat on the back for his hard work.
Preston’s Armed Forces Day was also one of if not the highest attending in the whole country and this needs to be celebrated. Looking back through various forms of media it did not get the amount of praise it should. I was mentioned but if another event on a different day gets a fraction of the attendance then surely the big story is Armed Forces Day. Just my opinion and I am biased of course.
After the big day it would not be PCW without an after party! I took Carlito and Chris Masters to see the bars of Preston. Getting towards the end of the night and our group dropping like flies we ended up in the Assembly, our final stop for the night. Chris Masters wanting to fight a midget who was drunk and bumping into him continuously signaled home time on a great day!
Our next event is August 1st and features former WWE Star and current TNA Star Ken Anderson! Tickets from www.prestoncitywrestling.com
