Former Newcastle United stars will be having a ball when they get together to share some golden memories at a special night at a city centre theatre.

A cracking line-up of players from The Entertainers era will be talking about their days at St James' Park during a Newcastle Legends night taking place early next summer.

The 'in-conversation' evening will be the latest in a popular series which sees a changing line-up of former big names share their stories with the public - who also get a chance to meet their heroes in person.

This time the stars of the show, to take place at Tyne Theatre in Westgate Road on May 15, will include Steve Howey, Lee Clark, John Beresford, Brian Kilcline, Tommy Wright, Keith Gillespie, Darren Peacock, Kevin Scott and Liam O’Brien.

And more players have yet to be announced.

The compere for the night will be The Chronicle's 'Voice of the Toon' John Gibson - Gibbo-  while striker Joe Allon, a former number 9, will be adding a comedy element.

The show, in the form of a question-and-answer session, promises to be fun and entertaining and it will also include a live broadcast of YouTube show NUFC Matters with Gibbo, joined by the legendary Supermac and its managing director Steve Wraith, discussing all club-related matters.

Fans will be able to pick up signed memorabilia on the night as well as enter a raffle for a chance to win a special, but undisclosed, prize.

And those wanting a chance to get up close and personal with the former stars of the pitch have the option of buying a VIP ticket which includes meeting all the players before the show, a signed picture, a photo with selected legends and a seat in the front nine rows.

VIP tickets range from £100-£150 while standard tickets are available for £65. See here .
