“Sir Tom was such a good football ambassador for both Preston and England and I’m looking forward to reminiscing about him.”

The event , in partnership with the PNE Former Players Association, starts at 7pm and tickets cost £10 with proceeds going to several charities.

There will be a football quiz, hotpot supper and musics from acoustic duo Darren Jackson and Ben Ainsworth.

It takes place at UCLan’s Mitchell and Kenyon Theatre in the Foster Building.
