With its industrial and arty interior, Cornmill Yard is the ideal venue for an intimate evening of fabulous food and an entertaining talk.

“He’s good, but can he do it on a cold, wet Tuesday night in Stoke?” This quote was said live on air by one well known broadcaster when referring to the great Lionel Messi! It is just one of many great stories that former sports reporter, Alan Tolley, will be sharing. Alan began life as a freelance reporter for BBC Radio WM back in 1982, later spending 21 years covering Premier League games for TodayFM Ireland. He’ll be recounting how he was advised not to give up his day job, as well as some of the strange, interesting and often humorous situations he’s found himself in over the years. He’ll also talk about the do’s and don’ts of reporting, as well as the inevitable highs and lows of his reporting career. This is a talk that will appeal to lovers of football as well as the not so keen!

Tickets: £22 (including 2-course supper). Pre-booking by 3rd May essential.
