On Monday, March 23, Gloucester Rugby will be holding 'An Audience with...'evening in conjuction with BBC Radio Gloucestershire.
The idea of the evening is both to look at some of the old Anglo Welsh issues with the build up to the EDF semi finals on 28th March, but mostly to have the panel of past and current players - Allan Townsend, Pete Butler, Phil Blakeway, Mike Teague, Andy Deacon and Andy Hazel - who will be able to give the audience some interesting insights and memories from games played over the years.
There will be interviews with the panel and a Q&A session, high lights will be shown on the BBC before the match on the 28th. The evening will be held in the Star Suite and begin at 7pm, tickets are priced at £15 to include dinner. To book your places please contact Laurie McNeill on 01452 872287 or firstname.lastname@example.org
