About Benny Lynch: The Little King of the Gorbals
Benny Lynch was the people’s champion. Coming from the slums of the Gorbals to being Scotland’s first boxing world champion by the age of 22, Benny’s rise was meteoric. He won the Scottish, European and World championship in 1935 and defended his title no less than three times. But his story was tinged with tragedy after alcoholism and declining health cost him his career and his life. He died at the young age of 33 in 1946.
The People’s Palace is hosting a community display which gathers together never seen before objects from Benny Lynch’s life and career, including his gloves, trophies, contract and personal items.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Benny Lynch: The Little King of the Gorbals are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
