Festelle Video is a long-standing female and mixed wrestling company that started 1983 in London, England and is still active. The first two videos tapes (FV1 and FV2) were recorded at private indoor events, but following the success of these videos they organised a live event in a pubic house in south London, England. The video recording of this event is still available on the Festelle website. All the matches were topless, which broke new ground in England at this time and led to the event being a success.

From 1983 live events continued to be a regular happenings for Festelle throughout the 1980s and 1990s, with events being held in a number of pubic houses in south and west London. The audience was usually around 30 to 40 depending on the size of the venue and the nature of the fights. Some indoor semi-private events also continued to held with a smaller audiences. In the late 1990s the owner of Festelle decided to stop the live events and concentrate instead on small private gatherings usually held indoors or in private gardens. It seems likely that Festelle is continuing with such events to this day.
