Tickets are £32 and tables of 10 are £320, including a three-course meal created by Northcote’s Catering.

Merson earned 21 caps for England. He started his career at Arsenal in 1986 before moving to Middleborough, Aston Villa and Portsmouth followed by a number of clubs in the lower leagues.

Also on the bill is comedian Gary Skyner who was born physically disabled due to the drug, Thalidomide. Gary has carved a career out making people laugh. 

He is quick witted and rather risqué at times and thrives on audience banter.
