Hi there - 2005 will see Extreme Fighting Machines (XFM) taking to the road with events across the UK throughout the year. We already have 5 events planned this year ranging from full combat shows through to educational robot camps for kids to experience what its like to be a roboteer. Hopefully they too will get the roboteering bug ! Also, in response to feedback from the public ALL our announced main show event tickets are just £5 each making them affordable for all to enjoy !

Roboteering has been moving forward with teams investing in new machines, and new teams appearing all the time with better and better machines, if you've not seen what's been going on, now's your chance !

30th April / 1st May - XFM Featherweight Challenge, Cambridge
1st / 2nd June - XFM at the Suffolk Show, Ipswich
4th / 5th June - XFM Featherweight Challenge, Ipswich

The XFM Featherweight Challenge is a show that brings the fun and excitement that Robot Wars brought to our TV screens. In a brand new purpose built arena, complete with new arena effects and hazards as well as fantastic sound and light support these shows are about showing combat robots in their element. We've already got some top class teams competing, with more signing up all the time. Its not often you get to see the featherweight class of robot's on their own - and here is the chance !

Tickets for the XFM Featherweight Challenge shows are just £5 and can be bought online from or via our telephone booking line on 0870 8555 718. At this price we're expecting these shows to sell out quickly as with other live events in the UK, so we would advise early booking to avoid being disappointed !

We'll send out an updated newsletter with details of the teams and robot taking part, as well as keeping you up to date with their progress throughout the competition so whichever event you come to - you'll know the story to date !

Brand New House Robots

Accompanying the XFM shows around the UK will be Vanguard and Throttle, two brand new house robots from XFM. They'll also be appearing at other events such as the Denbigh Robot Event in Wales, see for details. Of course both Throttle and Vanguard will be appearing at the XFM Shows as well.

There's loads more details about all our events on the brand new XFM website at so please come along !
