Robo Riots

National Show Centre, Friday 31st May - Monday 3rd June 2019

Robo Riots brings famous robots from BBC's hit TV show Robot Wars, to battle it out live in Dublin.

They clash, spin, flip. Sparks fly. See your favourite robots take to the arena in the action packed family show. The biggest, baddest, strongest and fastest next-generation 110kg robots from BBC's Robot Wars. Newcomers from all over Ireland and the UK will compete in three-minute bouts, the goal of which is to destroy or disable the opponent, to reign supreme in Robot Combat Sports.

Robot Wars Champions will be taking to the arena including; Thor, Diotoir, Beast, fighting against veterans such as Flick, Ripper, KingB and novice robots such as Iron Heart and Teresa Mayhem. Bounty fights, robot rumbles and grudge rematches will all be on display. The first full length heavyweight combat robot tournament of its scale in Ireland! Every live event session promises metal-munching, head-to-head, monster match-ups and jaw-dropping exhibition matches that fans have always dreamt of. Mad science, gladiatorial combat, plucky garage inventors, and hi-tech machinery. Brutally effective, utterly vicious machines have now evolved from one based on an engineering challenge, to that of hi-tech operational challenge with space age materials.

As well as the heavyweight action, there will be a chance to see the smaller featherweights, with up to 10 robots in one fight! But it's not just combat robots! There will also be celebrity robots like R2-D2, a Dalek, a minecraft creeper and AL-1X – our very own z-list celebrity robot. There will also be boxing robots. Seven foot rockem sockem boxing robots will be trading haymakers in a no holds barred one-on-one slugfest, to literally knock each other's block off.
