Gladiators from the successful TV show are to play mounted games for charity against the England Mounted Games Association team (MGA) in an event near Warrington in July.

Ten Gladiators, including former Wrexham-based show jumper Amy Guy, aka Siren (pictured), have issued the challenge in aid of charity Help for Heroes and as a fundraiser for the England Mounted Games Association team.

Amy was on the Welsh mounted games team and show jumping squads and played polo at university before becoming a Gladiator. Vice chairman of the MGA, Kay Leese, said: “We are looking forward to seeing the Gladiators on horse back. It should be an hilarious event.”

There will also be a fairground and a horseball match, with the Gladiators signing autographs and performing in the ring twice.

The event will be staged on Sunday 12 July at New Pastures Farm, Bedford Road East, Warrington, Olney, Bucks, MK46 4HW.

Admission is £10 adults, £7 concessions, £5 children, under 2s free. For more details call Kay Leese on 07775160212.
