‘The Round and the Oval – the story of football and how to find your footballing ancestors’ will cover early footballing history, with special reference to the north east. Keith will also be on hand to give tips on how you can trace your sporting ancestors.
The Toon Times exhibition, which takes supporters on a journey through the Club’s history from it’s humble beginnings through to today’s star studded Barclays Premier League team, has already attracted over 50,000 visitors to the Discovery Museum since its launch in February.
Head of Newcastle United Foundation, Kate Bradley, said: “The talk in with Keith is a great opportunity for passionate north east football fans to find out how they can trace their footballing ancestors and help support the Newcastle United Foundation at the same time. We have been overwhelmed by the number of visitors that have already visited the exhibition and we’re really excited to add this event to the programme.”
‘The Round and the Oval – the story of football and how to find your footballing ancestors’ with writer, historian and musician Keith Gregson takes place on Thursday 10 April at 2pm at the Discovery Museum. Tickets are priced at £4 and can be purchased online here.
