Robots Live

Robots Live

'Robot Wars' Champions; Apollo and Eruption, will be fighting it out live in Grantham along with many of the stars of the BBC2's hit returning show at Robots Live!

Robots Live comes to the Meres Leisure Centre, Grantham on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June 2019, as part of their UK tour. Joining Apollo will be other famous faces from the new and old series of Robot Wars, including; TR2, Eruption, Gabriel and Behemoth.

They will all be battling to be crowned the Robots Live! Champion.

Joining the competitors in the arena will be our very own 'House Robots'. Keeping control of the 110kg heavyweights, will be 'Goliath', weighing in at ~1'000kg and standing 5feet tall, he is capable of rolling over a car with his powerful crushing arm and tracked drive.

Alongside him will be 'BattleAxe', she weighs in at 130kg and looks after the 13.6kg featherweight robots. During the shows you might also get a glimpse of some of the other crazy and famous TV and movie robots, with a Dalek almost certain to interrupt the show at some point!


All of the action is housed safely in our purpose built, 6'000kg arena. The arena is equipped with its own array of weapons including; The Pit, floor flipper and two massive hammers which are controlled by the audience! New for 2019 is our 120kg spinning drum of destruction!

Dave Young, captain of Team Apollo says “After winning the new series of Robot Wars, we can't wait to get in the arena again and fight in front of a live audience at Robots Live!. Not only does it give our the fans a chance to see the action up close, it gives us another house robot to attack!”.

There will be three action packed shows over the weekend.

Shows are at 6pm on Saturday and 12pm & 3.30pm on Sunday.
