The World’s Strongest Man is coming to Northampton’s Deco Theatre. He’s Eddie Hall – aka The Beast – who, other than winning the World’s Strongest Man title, also became the first person to complete a half tonne deadlift, which he described as ‘the most incredible lift in human history, and one of the most dangerous things I’ve ever done’.
Eddie, who starred in the hit documentary, ‘Strong Man’, on Netflix, comes to Northampton on Friday, October 12, when he will talk about his journey from a rebellious child to international ‘Strong Man’, and about a diet that includes 12,000 calories per day to maintain his 30 stone plus body, plus his training regime of four daily gym sessions.
“He’s quite a phenomenon, very much a character, and fascinating to meet and listen too,” said Jill Roach, front of house manager at The Deco. “We’re delighted Eddie has chosen The Deco has part of a UK tour, his show is extremely interesting and entertaining, and I’m sure our audience will be captivated by his anecdotes.
“October’s quite a month for us in terms of sporting legends, with Eddie’s visit coming a week after former world heavyweight boxing champion Frank Bruno comes to The Deco, so we’re all really excited to be bringing such big names to Northampton.”
The evening is compered by former professional Rugby League player, now sports presenter, John Lebbon. VIP Gold tickets, which include a professional photo with Eddie, an item signed, and table seating, are available direct from the promoter on 07515 751333; otherwise book online: www.thedeco.co.uk or call The Deco Box Office on 01604 491005.
