CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
The Strongman Classic
Archive :: production:T2010155203, sport:S01703962870, venue:V221
Witness strength sport and entertainment at its absolute best and biggest in the incredible surroundings of the Hall! The Strongman Classic
will deliver the epic, blood-pumping action Giants Live are known for, but with an old-time strongman edge, with historic lifts like the Pillars of Hercules, Circus Dumbbells and Atlas Stones. Expect an intense atmosphere in the adrenaline-filled Royal Albert Hall, harking back to the world's first professional weightlifting competition that took place in our iconic Auditorium in 1901. Eugen Sandow himself organised the event, which was judged by none other than sculptor and athlete Sir Charles Lawes and Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Join us in 2020 for a spectacular celebration of history, heritage and herculean strength as a host of international strongman champions compete live for a golden ticket to World's Strongest Man!
