Alan Shearer scores in England shirt

We couldn't be named after the England soccer legend, Alan Shearer, if we failed to acknowledge the international football event taking centre stage this month!

With this in mind we're kicking off our World Cup celebrations this weekend at the Alan Shearer Centre with a range of footie themed activities.

On Saturday 14 June, the day the England team plays its first match of the tournament, we will be holding our own penalty shootout contest, blow football, children's World Cup quiz and country location game.

There will also be soccer-related arts and crafts activities taking place including World Cup colouring-in sheets, football kit design and word searches.

Our marquee has been put up in the grounds this week so even if the weather is foul rain won't stop play!

Call the Alan Shearer Centre on 0191 267 8118 to register your interest in taking part in our free events.
