Snooker legends Steve Davis and Dennis Taylor square up for fun at Stoke’s Victoria Hall

SNOOKER fans are being invited to relive the famous ‘Black Ball’ final of 1985 with its stars Steve Davis and Dennis Taylor at the Victoria Hall in Hanley next week.

The Snooker Legends tour, which sees idols of the game match up in a night of nostalgia, comedy and pure entertainment, stops in Stoke on Wednesday, May 16.

The Potteries showdown will be Davis’ only appearance on the tour, and he’s looking forward to taking on his old rival and pal once more.

Davis has made himself one of the biggest names in the game’s history, winning the World Championships six times, while also bagging a record 80 professional titles from 115 finals.

He was awarded an OBE for services to snooker in 2001.

And, even at the age of 54, he’s still going, and only a few of weeks ago he narrowly missed out on competing in this year’s Worlds.

Davis and Taylor will be joined at the Victoria Hall on May 16 by former UK champion and trick shot specialist John Virgo and female referee Michaela Tabb.

Tickets for the event are priced £20, to book call the box office on 0844 871 7649 or visit www.atgtickets.com/stoke.
