A sports and music festival which will be the first of its kind to be held in Europe is to take place in Poole.
Both disabled and able bodied athletes will compete against each other in strength events at Chunkfest which will be hosted by Ringwood based House of Chunk.
Taking place on Saturday 24 June at Poole Stadium, competitors will compete against each other in strength events with four specifically designed Strongman events alongside smaller challenges and competitions.
The day will also feature MMA and boxing displays and demonstrations of wheelchair rugby and boxing. There will be live DJs throughout the day, a variety of food stalls, and exhibitors from across the country showcasing fitness kit, as well as health and rehabilitation products. The day will also feature special guests from the Strongman World and paralympic athletes.
Tim, founder and owner of House of Chunk, said: “We are getting excited for our very first Chunkfest event. We’ve been involved in Disabled Strongmen and Women events at the Arnolds Fitness Event at the NEC in Birmingham.”
The event will continue into the evening with music including sets from Saints of Sin, live DJs, street performers and laser shows.
Tim said: “We are really excited to bring this event to Poole and to be able to raise money for local charity, Diverse Abilities to support children and adults with disabilities across Dorset.”
House of Chunk will be supporting Diverse Abilities at the Dorset Neon Run on Saturday 22 April with activities for everyone to get involved in.
Helen Mortimer, development manager at Diverse Abilities, said: “We are really looking forward to this event, and raising awareness of the adaptive community. It’s really exciting that this new event is being held right on our doorstep, and an amazing opportunity for local people to watch Strongman events and enjoy an evening of live music.”
