About The Lynching: The Last Rounds of Benny Lynch

1935. The Florence Street Flyweigh, Benny Lynch conquers the world and its imagination. From Gorbals slum to grandiose glamour, fought and won, a knockout. Explore the mindset of this Gorbals boy, in this poignant, pulls no punches drama of a true 'legend' as he battles with his demons in and out of the ring.

A World First, when Performance meets Pugilism, performed in the ring in partnership with O'Neils ABC, Cambuslang, Kelvin ABC Govanhill and Duries ABC Rutherglen, featuring the boxing talent of today and tomorrow.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Lynching: The Last Rounds of Benny Lynch are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
