The Benny Lynch Story

About The Benny Lynch Story

This show tells the story of Scotland’s first ever boxing world champion. It is a poignant and entertaining look at his life, from his childhood in the Gorbals, to his boxing success and global stardom, and then sadly to demise and untimely death in 1946 at the age of only 33.

Doesn’t matter if you don’t like boxing. It’s a show about a man. It’s the ultimate rags to riches to rags story.

STEPHEN PURDON (Shellsuit Bob from River City) plays Benny, and DAVID HAYMAN takes on the role of his coach and mentor, Sammy Wilson.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Benny Lynch Story are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
