What to expect:
Hosted in partnership with ‘The Wick‘, we are pleased to present an exclusive evening in conversation with one of football’s most influential players, Gary Lineker. Regarded as one of the world’s best strikers, Lineker is an institution of international football.
As the longest-running ‘Match of the Day’ commentator, and as the host of the UK’s televised World Cup coverage since 1998, he is for many the face of football, and his post-match critiques have inducted a generation of fans into the sport.
Reflecting on a 44-year career including many of the highs and lows of British football, that has seen changes in regulation, new grounds, emerging stars, club clashes, tournaments and trophies, they will discuss why football holds such a singular position within our collective cultural consciousness.
Guests will have an opportunity to pose their questions to Lineker directly during an audience Q&A, and there will be a chance to speak to other guests and football figureheads in our post-match bar.
Art Plugged is a contemporary platform inspired by a relationship with the broader arts communities. We provide our audience with curated insight into the world of art, from exhibitions to artist interviews and more.
