From boxing to speedway, wrestling to football – Belle
Vue was famous for showcasing a range of sports over the years. Famous names
such as wrestlers, Big Daddy, Giant Haystacks and Jack Pye all fought in the
King’s Hall and speedway riders such as Peter Craven and Peter Collins raced to
vestry in the speedway stadium for the Belle Vue Aces.
