The DOA Wrestling will be making a park return with the first match taking place on June 9 at 1pm and another at 3pm.

An event spokesman said: "Mafia brings his unique offence and brash attitude to West End Park as he will look to impress.

"His opponent is known as the Sassy Bear and will be strutting into the festival with his glitter and feather boa as only he can!

"These two men are complete opposites, but that will make an interesting confrontation."
