Garry will be talking about his career and reminiscing over his career in football which spanned the 1970s, 80s and 90s through his recently published autobiography - Don't Believe a Word.

BBC CWR's Phil Upton will also be attending, taking the former players on a trip down memory lane to provide an insight into their playing careers and reveal a few, never told before, stories from 'back in the day'.

Signed copies of Garry's book will be available on the evening.

Entrance is £3 per person, or £10 for groups of four. Doors open at the Nelson Club at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.
