FOOTBALL-mad comedians Bob Mills and Ian Stone from BBC 5Live’s award-winning Fighting Talk programme, will line up on the stage of Harpenden Public Halls alongside show host Will Buckley next Thursday, October 18.

They will be sifting through every goal, every transfer, every manager sacking and every training ground shooting incident in the show entitled Off The Ball which is based on the weekly ESPN TV format of the 2011/12 season.

A local player or football personality will be on stage to complete the panel.

A classic game of two halves, starting at 8pm, the first part will see the panel run through the football stories of the day in the same style as Fighting Talk and QI, with a series of quick-fire debating points and questions.

Part Two becomes an interactive forum, with the audience invited to throw questions at the panel in the style of “An Audience With....”

Tickets at £18.50 with concessions £16.50 are available from the Public Hall box office on 01582 767525 or
